Great machine. Meets some of Swishy's specs for a real truck.
Spiders, bonnet etc. Paul.

Just talked to him. As expected he says it drives like the brand new truck it is. Only problem is it is a little slow at a comfortable 80 to 85

Lang, I love all these pictures. There was nothing like that at Mataranka nor Daly Waters when I was there. Then again that was in 1974 and I am sure things have changed.:S

I am particularly happy with the photo of the 1929 or 1930 Chevrolet with the giant sauce bottle. (I could be sure which year if I saw a picture of the front brake drum or the instrument panel)
I think I will put another trip to the Territory on my bucket list.

I wonder if you could get any more colours on the EH Holden Taxi? I do remember multi-coloured Taxis way back when.
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!
