  2. Any chance any of those f1 trucks have the pedal mounts and crossmember in them? Also after an f1 steering box.

    Hi tylerae40
    The tank sedan is sitting on a station dump in the Gascoyne. Came across these FC/FE holdens on a dump out from Bonnie Rock/Beacon way. The panel van is pretty hard to find and could be saved. Notice the engine on the ute has been painted the same colour as the body.

    Hi 56don
    The Escort drop bear is just near the Trans Australia railway line so I'm guessing some one with a sense of humor and a loader or crane did the job.
