It would be nice to have employees with nothing better to do than polish up your collection.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

YEs wee-allis the Torana does look good and was the obvious target of the pic. The 2 Ferds were further proof of those 80% of the Ferds still being on the road, the other 20% made it home.

.I am standing back so i dont get trampled to death with all the enquiries coming forth................
So i had better give some more info so as to satisfy all the salivating minds............
Car 1 is a 1972 Mustang coupe..........
Car 2 is a 1973 Mustang coupe........
Both L/H drive............
No idea why they were done up as is , but can only assume that it would have cost a small fortune as they both
were totally immaculate
There you go ,.......... Thats about it.......................

....................Cob........Actually i didnt notice the Torana till i looked at the pics later on................

..................Now back to the trucking side of things................

Hi,

I took me a few minutes to realise they were Mustangs. :) Something wasn't right and I was looking at the wheels, which incidentally aren't the same wheels as the originals. A couple of Mustang is probably cheaper than even one XC fastback coupe.

A quick look around Google and the #1 car showed up as a Tribute car in January 2020 with a 1-2 on the door, www.flickr.com/photos/50415738@N04/49634101752, so it looks like #2 has been created since.

Well it took me a long time to even find the Torana, at first I was thinking these jokers have been in the sun for to long and then the mention of the HiAce van and I thought they are definitely some cooked chooks but I looked closer and well it turns out I was wrong

Dunno nothing about Mustangs but they look classy

Car 1 appears to be wearing ROH Sprintmaster wheels. (I only know this because I had a set on a Kingswood over 30 years ago).

asw120,
Did you shampoo the battery on the Kingswood as the TV commercial said?
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!
