Morris Commercial – When having any old car just isn’t enough

When you need to really stand out in the crowd… or you just need to make a delivery with more style and pizazz than George Clooney in Oceans 11

A sausage in bread, some hardware from Bunnings and a set of wheels to get there

A quick show of hands around the ANOCSC office proved that 17 out of 20 people agree that the only way to get your weekly Bunnings sausage (and apparently we needed some tap washers) is in a Thunderbird that looks like this. The other three people in the office at the time were GM fans and grudgingly agreed that if a 55 Cadillac  wasn’t available, then this would be an adequate replacement.

Who ya gunna call? The ANOCSC crew, that’s who!

After months of hibernation over the summer months, the ANOCSC crew saw this car in Hervey Bay and knew it was time to get spotting again. The question of who to call was made; and the ANOCSC crew responded accordingly.

Honda photo bombed by Buick

Some old cars just can’t help themselves and have to be in every damn photo. It’s just like a Buick to go and ruin a photo of a lovely new Honda…

Brocky’s Torana – Smokin’

The only way to pick up the shopping… in Brocky’s Torrie. Somehow I don’t think you’d fit the week’s groceries in the boot.

A quiet neighbourhood, picket fences and roof racks

Lose the roof racks and you’ve got the coolest car in the street. With the roof racks, it’s Nanna’s car about to head off on a vacation to visit the In-Laws.

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.
