Valiant Charger RT

“Hey Charger” –

Ratrod Valiant Stationwagon

Oakleigh, March 2012
Spotter: Aaron

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.

Thunderbird and Valiant

Spotter: Aaron

Nice pair of cars – but I’m actually wondering if they’re a hologram – they haven’t moved from this spot in about two years.

WB Panelvan with signwriting

Ashburton Mar 2012
Spotter: Robbie

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.

S Series Valiant

Westgate Freeway, March 2012
Spotter: Robbie

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.

XW Stationwagon

Spotter: Peter

Like a mirage, this long cool drink of water turned up one day parked under a palm tree. Standard height, venetians and wind deflector.

FB Holden – 1960


Ashburton Spotter: Aaron

A 60’s car in a 60’s driveway of a 60’s house. Perfect!

HK Monaro

Spotter: Peter

Features hard to find and replicate details such as a Bultaco sticker, Essendon Rowing Club sticker. Clearly sporting time worn paint – this could in fact be the ultimate Australian shed find.

Valiant – A Renovator’s Delight

A renovators delight…
A bit of spit and polish and this little beauty would be tearing up the tarmac.
