Not a bad turnout.

Last weekend was the WA pilgrimage to York where about 500 cars and motorbikes appeared including a contingent of Bolwells and other fibreglass bodied cars.
Attractive couple and my, haven't those yellow banners served us well over the years.
Yes, that much traveled Nagari again.
The carbonfibre now replaced by stainless steel.
The  two racing versions  resplendent in their sandgroper racing blue liveries.
The most recent addition to the fleet.
A favourite non-Bolwell.
And another, keeping Phil's 7 company. I have a bit of a soft spot for the Marcos. Over the years we have had 2 of them in the SA club, both of them bright yellow.
And another. A few of these in the SA club too. There's still one.

Remember this?

Mk.1 Sprite on the front row at the Gold Coast wreckers.
I was just wondering whether the wreckers survived all the attempts to get rid of it or whether the pink FX (or was it an FJ?) is still on the upstairs veranda.

I want to know what happened to the front half.

That's the bit I'm after.

Last weekend's round of Coffee and Cars.

Here's my favorite.
Haven't met the owner yet but certainly hope to one day.
Nice shot Symon's Pics.

Here's one for sale in the UK. It's hard to imagine how something so rare and desirable could get to this.
Or this.
More neglect.......

Out and about.

The most Bolwell-about -town car would have to be the Nagari of coffee shop chaser, BC. Is it any wonder that the car is bobbing up on exotic car spotter forums these days?

The forgotten racer.

A formidable performer in the heady days of Victorian ProdSports was Doug Seath and his Mark 7. Here he is giving Paul Trevethan and the MGBV8 a bit of a hurry up at Hume Weir.

What does the President of China and the President of BCCA-WA have in common?

Artwork by Roger.

There WERE Bollies at Eastern Creek.

and Leylands too.
Which prompts me to it a requirement for P76 owners to turn up with a 44 gallon drum in the boot?

Bolwell wanted.


Looking to buy a Bolwell MK7 or Nagari in good overall and drivable condition as a father/son and grandfather weekend car. The car will be very well taken care of by devout enthusiast and it will be kept in original, period correct condition.

Based in NSW but willing to travel for promising cars, I have cash on hand and willing to pay a good price for the right car. If you think you may have something suitable please get in touch, I'd love to hear from you.
