yes I did a double take also.....

check page 32 of "Unique Cars", Issue 392, Sept 1st

Might pay those of you with Florians to mass email the editor, to set things right. At least they have a picture of one Florian in there though.
Heck you might even get an article published on Florians, those who are good at writing. (Dave ?)

Maybe they meant ones on the road.

Don't forgot to put Peter A's two florians on the list.

There's a pic Josh took in Adelaide in 2013. All on the road, and clearly double what they think exists.
The "other" Florian referred too isn't in that pic, so that's 5 on the road, plus another in Qld that was at Toowoomba last year, plus others that haven't referenced.
Good to see thoroughly investigated journalism is a strong point at Unique Cars.... All they had to do was log onto this site.

They are rare, rarer than GTs in fact, buf there are a few. The ones Kerry discovered takes my quick tally to 19 and 3 parts donors.
Cheers, Matt.

Dave has requested that everyone with a Florian please contact him with info and a few pics of your car/s for an article he's now writing for Unique Cars.
