    Check your airbags again. Do it. Very important.

    But. You know what's even more important. BATHURST WEEKEND!

    The last couple of weeks on my way to work of a morning, I keep seeing this old fella driving a Daihatsu ute.

    I always look on in astonishment, because I don't think I've ever seen one before. And the thing is in absolutely **** mint condition. Deadset looks like it just rolled out of the dealership.

    I kept meaning to look it up, and I've only just remembered to do so tonight. The Daihatsu Rocky, ladies and gentlemen:

    Except it's in even better condition than the above one.

    Must be one of the only ones in Australia. An absolute relic.

    Edit: Maybe not, looks like there's a few on Gumtree. None as good as this one I've seen though.

    1952 FX Holden which has been done up to to be a replica of Rock N Roll George's original (which is in a museum) they had at the Mt Gravatt cemetery open day. Thought some of you petrol heads would get a kick out of it.

    Thanks for posting @Fozz@Fozz. Beautiful ride - absolutely love that colour!

    Would look shit on today's cars, but on those classic lines, it's perfect.

    Credit to the lads at my cousin's panel beating shop in Brissie.

    Have done an exemplary job on the old man's MGA. Wasn't just a simple respray, apparently a lot of 'bog' and shit that had to be sorted. Old man is absolutely stoked with it though.
