A lot of money tied up in two cars huh.

Who would've thought they'd work what they are these days.

Nice cars, would be very cool working on those.  :cup:

Original condition in Burketown..shame it's just the dump runner. The interior makes use of local environmentally sustainable products.

Sucks for the owner getting their car stolen. Hopefully they find it soon.

Last Tuesday, police arrested a 26-year-old man on a worksite in Leeton and charged him with aggravated break and enter and stealing something worth more than $60,000.

Three days later a second man, 35, was arrested in Leeton on the same charges.

He was also charged for breaching public health orders after it was revealed he had allegedly been in Sydney recently.
