Time to fess up that I,m the proud owner of the GT from the farm of Simmys dad, Darryl. It,s been a long time coming and I had all but given up on getting a GT with the prices they are getting. Thanks firstly to Darryl for his generosity on the day, not only for keeping everything in my budget, but he went to a lot of effort to find every part he could for the GT, helped get the GT on the trailer with the tractor and stopped to have a chat during coffee breaks. Also thanks to Oz Toffa who pretty well organized everything from start to finish. In all a very special day getting my own GT but also the complete package experience, a day at the farm I will never forget.
Anyway I am looking forward to pulling down the GT and starting the rebuild. It,s not going to be at the pace of Rollie, it's going to be a 2 to 3 year job but look forward to sharing the photos with you all. Will put some photos up in the next week :P

Must be Greg, you keep going back!
And good work 'Claws', I love to see 'em come out of the paddock and get the care they deserve. Good name - and for the same reason 'Doris' has hers.
Please show us more.
Cheers, Matt.

yeah it sure is a compact..

compacted by a drunk driver who was stopped pretty hard by the rear end of prestine Blue 671/2 Auto Sedan.

he drove off but the car was a write off. i got it for parts as i had only done 80K miles.

the rear(what was left) has been cut so she finishes at the back doors. uses a milk bottle as a fuel tank...

would make a great dune buggy

We are all looking forward to the finished product.
We had a great time on the trip and as claws said your dad was so generous and so helpful.
It's always great to make a new friend in the Bellett community and chat around a cuppa.
So my personal thanks to Darryl as well!

Josh

Buy the way we did make another friend (below) :D
