Back when the M4 Motorway opened between Parramatta & Penrith it was heaven as far as traffic was
concerned, how ever, the accidents around the Prospect area were just unbelievable, so much so that
the speed limit was dropped to 90 ks.
All sorts of funny things happened, including this ......................................



No, it didnt come over the top,......it was west bound & carried out an over taking manouvre, then lost it,
& ended up like this, where it stayed for about a week.


This same area was also involved in the Razorback truck stoppage. ( The Prospect section)
Below is a coupla shots i took at the time.








Spotted out of Tibooburra

(Where the hell is the starter button......??? )


That's it for to night.........

The Benz in the middle of the highway at Prospect (1st pic) behind the blue Holden has a very interesting setup on the trailer. First time that I have seen that idea. :o

.Spotted this some years ago at Streaky Bay SA



An imitation Pete, Surperbly made.





Even the cab inside was set out like a Pete
Looked like it was built on an old Landcruiser chassis
Was spot on inside and out & had NT plates. (maybe WA)

I couldnt find any info about this either, SSOOOO,...Any body out there know it or have seen it around ????

Hi,

BillyP, excellent.

That's similar to the pot headed idea I had for my now discontinued Custom Ute plan (with just a clip).
Not to build an imitation of anything but more of a styled after idea.

But this one is an absolute cracker, thanks for posting. (that's more a WA plate on it isn't it?)
