So a fair amount of work required to comply these things in Australia, not to mention Tail Lights, Head Lights, Clearance Lights, Seatbelts........

I'm sure you find it all worthwhile now that it's done.

It's a beautiful example of a Crown Royale. I think I've stumbled across photos of the right hand drive being done...

In an earlier post on this thread I noticed that a poster stated that he thought a vintage vehicle was a Model T. I thought I would post a picture of my 1995 Rexhall Aerbus with my 1925 Model T Touring. Yes we do take a Model T with us on some of our travels.

Good looking combination.

Thanks John and Castrol, a lot of work but certainly worth it and thankfully haven't over capitilised. Even after converting, shipping and complying for our laws, it is worth a lot more here than what it owes me.

Our market is small and very over priced.

But you've got a few vehicles available there not available to us, like some of those cool "Utes".

Di you see my '23 Touring? Have no fear...no real Model T's were harmed in its building. And, if worse came to worst, it had enough power to tow the Trek.

Now I have a 1926 Model T Tudor Sedan. Real T body and frame, much modified. Judging by the patches I see from inside the doors, there wasn't a lot of pristine metal on it before it was rebuilt.

True Jay, but our market is poor and local manufacturers are bugging out, including Holden (GMH) and Ford, who make these Cool Utes, so within 2 years these guys will be gone as local manufacturers.

It should mean we'll hopefully get some US products in Right Hand Drive as I understand these manufacturers are forming Global platforms. There's still a heap of petrol heads here who want V8 Rear Wheel Drive vehicles, including myself. My current vehicle is basically the last built by "Ford Perfomance Vehicles" here, Ford Falcon GT Sedan with a US supplied 5.0 litre Aluminium V8, Modified and with a Supercharger added.

Last year (2013) in June, the 100th anniversary of the Lincoln Hiway was celebrated in Kearney, NE. One of the groups that participated and that made this celebration a success was the "Tin Can Tourists", I'm sure they members of the forum who have heard of them and may actually belong to this club. I should have shown the earlier but then it's never too late.

I especially liked the Diamond T pickup pulling the Spartan trailer. I noticed it had a GPS on the dash. I kidded the owner about that not being OEM for the pickup, he advised me that his LS1 Corvette engine in it wasn't either. The Buick in the one pic towed a trailer from Boca Rotan, Fl. Very interested and informing group of people. People came from both coasts, I just wished I had taken more photos.

Enjoy

Vintage Travco. Just got it

A couple of pictures of the Dodge Travco 270 Mahal I bought last week. It will be getting an interior rework and a going though of the various systems. It will not be a restoration but sort of a resto mod. These pics are from the day I drove it home.
