The big wooden box on the back is a cover for his Waeco.  The old guy drivering it and his new bride (married last week) were both characters as well

After driving around in a piece of garbage like that, I'm sure they are characters !!  We're all different, some more different than others !!  ;D

I've done judging on that car way back in the 80's.

Built by Dave Johnston of wynumn.

Not my cup of tea, but a very well built car.
I judged it for undercarriage and engine bay.

My old man wanted to buy the same colour XT Falcon GT......but you couldn't order one with a bench seat ( there was 4 of us snotters ), so he got a Maroon ( a one off colour that was different to factory Maroon ) ZB Fairlane...bench seat, 3 on the tree, 3.6 ltr, GT steering box. Believe it's still getting around in original condition.

Met this bloke today.
Bought a box trailer off him. Really nice bloke who only wants to sell this baby to the right person.
Mechanically superb. Purrs like a kitten.
Paint and trim totally original.
Not restored.Great patina if you want to keep that original look.
Been in a few locally produced movies like 'Australia'
He's chasing $25-$30k but negotiable.
If you are interested, I can put you in touch.
