Oakleigh, March 2012
I managed to sqeeze my camera lens between two non-descript cars to get this elaborate ratrod styled Valiant stationwagon. The tailgate had the most authentic rusted out look I’ve seen in long time.

A favourite of the ANOCSC. Fantastic example of early 1980’s sign writing. Note the period perfect alterations to the phone number on the drivers door – also the circular “aquarius” sticker between the drivers door and side window – and faded white and green number plates. The aerial has a fantastic rake to it. All perfect period details.
Westgate Freeway, March 2012
To say I was excited when I spotted these horizontal fins was an understatement. I knew the car but had to refer back to the ANOCSC record books for this one. The ANOCSC thought that we had lost this particular vehicle to the onward marching machine of time. Last spotted in Preston in October 2003 – now resurfaced on its way to Spotswood. Obviously a new owner – oh the stories we have missed out on here at the ANOCSC. That big slant six doing its thing and still powering along agains the odds.
