Thanks Fredeuce, great shot of Gursansky '36 on the fly. Classic.
I never went 'till 81. '77 -Had to listen in the schoolyard on the Tuesday from my mate.
He, I remember, raved about (& I hope this ain't distorted by me o'er time)- a powder blue Vanguard with 350 Chev & jag suspension.

Anyone see that?

Anyone got a photo of a black 1933 Ford 5W coupe from Qld at the 77 Nats. It had green 35 Ford wires and a flattie.

Thanks

Hope you don't mean this one.
These pics are from the 79 Nats. It looks black in the pics but is actually dark green.
You will have to ask someone from Lara about this car.

That one above looks like Graeme Blaby's

Thanks anyway

Chris

Top coupe 79 Albury Nats.
And its still a Top coupe, bit like some middle age women, showing some age, but still very attractive.
But I am a little bias. 8) 8) 8) :wink:
If you see it on a trailer dial 000 its probably stolen.

You never know, those green wires just might end up back on the car someday the thought has definately crossed my mind.
Graeme still has them and will not part with them, but if they're for the coupe that may be a different story.
If I do decide to do it I would ensure the wheels remain Graeme's.
