A Bright Star From Another Galaxie…

…ok, it was the best we could do at the time…

The Light Blue Datsun 4 Wheel Driving Club

The Light Blue Datsun 4 Wheel Driving club just completed one of their toughest weekends tearing up the Mount Waverley Village carpark.

The Mount Waverley carpark is one of the more difficult to reach “get aways” with few casual visitors who actually make the trek all the way in. There are a couple of chicken out areas where drivers have opted to turn back, as the descent into the lower underground carpark is technically difficult, with severe side angles on a very rocky, loose shale and rocky step off.
The closet cafe with decent coffee is a further 5 kilometres deeper into the second level (Yellow section) carpark. With extremely steep sided valleys all around it is very spectacular visually, but the best is yet to come. Ascending to two super challenging climbs both with loose rock and deep erosion channels, the first climb/scrabble/scramble gives you a nice view of the Post Office, but you still need to tackle the descent into the IGA loading bay using the low range low gear. This is definitely rear diff locked and eyes wide open stuff.  This is, without a doubt, one outing that will take some beating.


Rat Merc

The best looking car Mercedes ever put onto the road; and this one looked tuff AF. No pristine trailer queen here. She’s chewin up bitumen and spitten it out onto the pavement.

We’re renovating everything!

“Hey, if I restore the Val, the boat and the trailer at the same time as renovating the house, it will all get done at once and then we can sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labour!”

Well… it was a good idea at the time.

1961 BF Holden

Holden released a very limited run of the 1961 BF Holden. This model came about when one of the guys on the assembly line, in a momentary lapse of concentration, bolted the rear panels of the car on to the front of the car. Rob, a young, up and coming designer (who went on to work in the GM studios in Los Angeles designing concept cars for movies and car shows) just happened to be out in the assembly factory on that day, saw the mistake and thought it looked really cool. The rest is history; and this is a beautifully restored example which was showcased in Street Machine.

“See That Merc, It’s Mine Too”

Said the guy who just got the Morris outta the shed for a quick spin. Jealousy is not a curse, it’s a state of being.


Pony Up For New Year’s Eve

Summer is on its way and all roads lead to the beach when you’re in a Sandman.

The Actual Barracuda…


Hey Man! The name of the new Plymouth fastback is the “Barracuda”.

I can’t pronounce “Baccaruda”!

Well, try this:

Say “Ba”


Say “Ra”


Say “Cu”


Say “Da”




Well, it ain’t “Barracuda” man, but I think we got a hit website!
