    Yes it is sad really , I had the opportunity to buy the Ron Wickham F100 in the early 70's for $1500 & passed it up, but with a new mortgage it wasn't that easy. Here is another pair that have disappeared into thin air sadly. 42462590_10157205359914311_2718270160094887936_n.jpg mx1305cus_bluej.jpeg

    That Customline is another one. I'm not surprised early Holdens didn't survive. Most of them were full of rust and a lot of the repairs weren't done well so they just rotted away.

    So some time today and found a lot of new pictures up on the Australian Historic Hot Rod site.
    Special mention to Peter Eames who contributed a lot of photos that I have used here. Peter is known in Australia as the Willys King. I have never met him but he fortunately kept a photographic record of the early days in Victoria.

    I had forgotten all about creating that thread and it is back to life over a year later.

    I met a couple of Australians at Viva Las Vegas and they gave me a copy of a ‘68 Hot Rod magazine. It had an Ed Big Daddy Roth ad in it, he was there that year, I asked him to sign it, I’ll treasure it forever

    You had some incredible mag wheels, totally unlike anything American.

    Don’t know how I missed this thread the 1st time around. I have always liked the Aussie slant in hot rods from what limited coverage used to be in R&C etc. Slopers, utes, and the cool model 40 five windows, especially with wicked channels; have always sucked me in. Keep em coming!
