    G'Day all ... Yep another Aussie looking for a new home ...

    My nic came about cos my teenage son (TJ) advised us he needed a home puter for scholastic endeavours !! yeahh right .. immediately installed he proceeded to join Rod sites and therin began a new one fingered life for me.

    I've been playin cars for more years than i care to remember .. started out with a Fiat Toppolino powered by an Austin A30 motor .. did i say powered ?? well i did pass a car once .. so wot if he was broken down !!

    Since then I've built a few and bought many off other builders .. i tend to like oddball stuff ... For the last couple of years my ride has been a 26 Rugby Tourer (2dr) tunnel Rammed 350 Chev T400 n Jag rear .. my wife has a 52 morrie 2dr with roof removed painted purple with pink scallops .. son has a 65 Falcon S/W we are building into a woody (already has wooden barn doors) and we're 3 parts of the way into a Rat Rod built from salvaged bits I've collected over the years ( I'm a Towie and collect unwanted cars) most of the bits on the Rat i couldnt identify ie: the chasis .. cowl n doors .. but the thing is coming together nicely.
    When i figure out how all this works i will post a few photos .... nice to be here ...... Mike

    Yep .... drooled over yours while sippin on a stubbie at Geelong Nats ... it was parked near fence with seat next to it so took a 1/2 hr break n admired it ... the comments i heard .... some amazed .. some luv it .. some dont .. those ones usually are the ones who are 'gonna' build one.

    Me I just reckon it's a pissa !!
