Aussie Car Day, Manfeild...Other stuff.

Here are some of the other than Aussie vehicles (or other than the big three)  displayed and some in the car park.
This was for sale on the side of the road in Feilding.
A replica no doubt, but looks good.

Trio in the car park.

A closer look at the Cadillac on the end.

The Mk3 Zodiac is the pick of the Zephyr/Zodiac range.

A Mini K, so legitimately at an all Aussie meeting.

Studebaker Cruiser is an usual attendee.

Another Mini, this time a Clubman, but I don't think of Australian origin.

1928 Overland Whippet certainly isn't Australian, but what a lovely old car.

Big Impalas were once relative plentiful on our roads.

Falcon track car.

1939 Ford Pickup.

and a 1940 version.

Neat little Escort.

'57 Bel Air 2 door.

65 Mustang convertible.

'68 Mustang "Notchback".

I guess blue is Fords colour, but this 2016 Mustang looks great in red.

The AC Cobra has been the catalyst for numerous replicas. but I don't think this is of Australian origin.

Nice pillarless Impala.

And yet another tidy Mini.

Aussie Car Day, Manfeild....Chrysler.

I like Valiants.
Just a bit different to Holdens and Fords.

VF Hardtop in orange and black.

 R/T badgesand a  Pacer colour, but I suspect it may have started life as a standard VG.

Neat installation of a 245 Hemi Six in a VC to replace the slant six.

It is for sale, but needs quite a bit of work to make it really tidy.

Charger with 318 V* looks like it's just left the factory.

Original VG V8.

I never thought the later coupes/hardtops looked as good as the VF and VG models.

VG and VF models seem reasonably popular, but there seems to be far fewer VEs about.

Big roomy VJ Ranger wagon.

Chrysler VJ with 318 V8.

All Aussie Car Day, Manfeild....Holden (2).

EH flies the flag.

With mags? Or...


A vary aggressive looking beast.

This started life powered by a 1900 Opel motor.
Now wears a V8.

Superb paint on this, now rare, panel van.

Lake pipes not really a "thing" any more.

Very nice HT wagon.

They don't come much better than this.

How things have changed.

You've got to love a stock standard HR.

FX utes must be rare.
Neat installation of front indicators, but just ruins that originality.

Time to move over if this appears in your mirror.

All Aussie Car Day, Manfeild....Holden (1).

There seems to be a few of these coming out of the woodwork, but I don't like the wheels on this one.

There were Commodores a plenty.

Looks good on the standard steel wheels

This one is for sale. No price, just a phone number.
I'm sure he will get whatever he wants for it.

I don't usually like black wheels, but they seem to work with red.

Wheel style good, but just a bit too much diameter I feel.

Just lovely.

These wheels suit.

Very desirable.

A smart HQ.

A lot of work has gone into this.

EH under bonnet.

EH interior. I didn't take a photo of the exterior, I don't like photos of cars with the bonnet up.

This I could have taken home.
