XM Falcon Hillbilly Ratrod

Scotts Creek, April 2012
Spotter: Robbie

The Hilly Billy Rat Rod style for the older Falcon really has taken off over the last few years. The ANOCSC is really impressed with the detailing on this example found in the south west of Victoria. Just waiting for club plates and some custom pin striping.

The ’79 LTD will need a bit more time to gain the correct aesthetic and character.


Black Mustang

South Melbourne, April 2012

Spotter: Kelly

 

This is a Black Mustang.  It appears that Mustangs like this are spreading like a virus in the inner Melbourne suburbs.  They are having a detrimental effect on the local early Falcon scene.


Volkswagon van

 

The annual ANOCSC Family Beach Day was held down at Somers in Westernport Bay this year. We piled everyone into the ANOCSC VeeDub, piled the surfboards on the roof and wheezed our way down the South Gippsland Highway.

A great time was had by all. Looking forward to next year’s Family Beach Day.


Mustang by the Bay

Mustang Mike (a long time ANOCSC spotter) drove to the ANOCSC Family Beach Day in his cool coupe. Unfortunately, the lure of Bunnings in Hastings was too much; and he spent the day wandering up and down the aisles of the hardware goliath.


FB Holden – We’re outta gas…

 

This poor old chump was spotted in a side street… about 100 metres from a petrol station.

He obviously hasn’t worked out that when your petrol gauge says you have a third of a tank left, it really means you’re about to become a pedestrian.


Bedford Donut Van – 1978

 

Slow start for ANOCSC activities this weekend. Thankfully got way better after this ’78 Bedford


Buick Riviera

 

Melbourne, March 2012
Spotter: Kelly

Spotted on the side of the road while traveling on her husband’s shoulders.  Our intrepid spotter had to balance uneasily to take this shot.  Well worth it.  Obviously not a native to our shores, but sure to have a nice vinyl smell inside on a hot day anyway.  And for that we love the Buick.


Buick Century

 

Woolies, Ashburton, April 2012
Spotter: Pedro

Even Rockabilly Rebels need to go to the supermarket.


Charger

Somewhere in the badlands of Melbourne, April 2012
Spotter: Aaron

In the early 90’s Chargers were being stolen every day. An associate of ANOCSC had an orange Charger just like this one stolen. The Police recovered the car and told him they were sorry but it had been ransacked. His reply – “nah, that is just the way it is…”

Now times have changed – stealing these cars is just not an option for the badies anymore. The sheer number of ANOCSC members with cameras ready guarantees that every move of one of these vehicles is tracked in living colour.

Good on you ANOCSC!


EH 1964

Abbotsford Mar 2012
Spotter: Aaron

On the back street and wearing well worn plates. A classic vehicle any red blooded youth of the 1970’s would have aspired to have an elbow out of the drivers window of. Holdens did not get any better than this and try as they might with Monaro, Torana and countless show cars, GMH could not recreate the magic of the EH era.


EH 1964 – Yarra Glen

“Where’s my steelies?”


EJ Paddock Basher

Spotter: Aaron

This is a classic example of an Aussie paddock basher. The flames on the bonnet give the car an extra 25 horsepower when in top gear; and the flames at the back wheels give the rear end extra traction when accelerating quickly from a standstill.
