Shed: FX sedan project-
This is the FX sedan Project I was sold by the three daughters of John Inglis. This is a genuine one owner car in remarkable condition. Easily without a doubt - one of the best cars of this type in the country.
Unfortunately John passed away suddenly in February 2006. I was contacted by Robin - one of his daughters who was enquiring about getting the car valued so it could be sold. In reality the three girls secretly hoped to find someone that could take over the restoration of their Fathers car.
This car was partially dismantled with many parts already reconditioned and carefully labeled, catalouged and stored away. The amount of meticulous detail that has gone into the restoration of this car by John is unfathomable!
I am honoured that Robin Jane and Jo have chosen me to finish what their father had started in 1975!
[Late edit] Due to our move to NZ in 2008 the car was sold to Graham Carr who performed the resto back to perfection.

Shed: HJ Ute Project now sold...
**Newsflash** This ute has now left the shed- and may now get finished by its new owner. I had to start deleting projects that have been in hibernation a little too long.
This is a HJ Ute I bought from an oldholden.com member - Hothx. They were moving house and it had to go. Ironically they bought it from my mate Wayne - so he was a little surprised to see it in my shed. The plan is to wreck out my WB Statesman and put all the parts into this HJ- thus making a Deville Ute. It will be for sale when finished. Ya want it? call me on (07) 3206 0340.
Follow along as this ute gets the streetneat makeover...

Shed: The tow truck project
The belated 1948 Chev Maple leaf tow truck project - due to the severe expense - ( more than the price of a new HSV!) This project will be completed - eventually - but will take time and lots more $$$$. A lot of the hard work has been done and it is just gathering dust and willful stares at present...
[LATE EDIT] In 2006 we reluctantly sold the truck and the FC Ute to buy a new Crewman. The new owner also ran a panel shop on a chook farm and I believe it was finished sometime in 2008. I never did go back to see how it turned out - we moved to NZ.
Strange but true;
Now ironically after being here in NZ a few years I spied a 1936 Chev truck on Trademe so rang to enquire about it. I didn't buy it but much to my surprise the seller was the uncle of the guy I sold mine to in Oz!
