Wow, that's a a wide and impressive variety of vehicles, photos of the Cobra Jet possible?

Also like the number plates that match. :)
7lt 429 Cobra Jet engine optioned Cougar :)
When i bought it, the engine was in pieces, and hasnt been on the road since 91.
Pretty unique car, 1 of 17 built that year for export. RHD conversion done in Sydney.
Its nearly ready for the road :)

Thanks, I would also have the matching plate on the Torana, but it has the original plate since new. Never been un-registered, im the second owner.
I also have the orginal Qplate for the FJ, but that will cost me a little over $3k to personalise it :p

My dream car has just appeared on eb... in the UK, RS200, should I unload my cba shares? :) They come up for sale vary rarely. Mind you, I probably wouldn't get to drive it as the boss would probably kill me. :)

YOLO?

I’ve just bought a VX Diesel Toyota Land Cruiser to tow our new 21 foot Jayco Journey. As soon as @GPH is fit enough we’ll head off on our cancelled Adelaide, Sydney, France & Lombok holidays. It all adds up.

Edit: Heading off in the van to replace our cancelled holidays.

Hopefully you're not taking the Jayco to France and Lombok.
VX sounds like a Prado.

Yeah, weird pricing process though.

Make sure you get one of the first 1000 @Cossie and save yourself over $10k.

After the first 1000, who’s going to want to pay $49k?

I thought you were a Ford hot hatch man, through and through.

Must be time to sell my WRX as it's only as quick as a Yaris now.

I'll stick with my Porsche ragtop and get the air through my hair, even though the zero to 100km is a half second slower.
It's great weather atm for going topless.
It's not really something I want, although we still have to replace her car. A Ranger/Hilux/Triton option is just too big. I've looked at big 4x4's like the Everest and Toyotas, but again, that sort of thing is too big as well. Realistically I want something that I can take offroad, not serious stuff like rock hoping, and the like, without it falling apart.

Convertible Trabant! Just take spare cardboard to fix things.
