Thanks fellas, good to hear you are working away on yours too Mr Flibbs. You have a year 'till the 2012 Nats!

I don't see a Flo in your list, Oz. (My memory is weak sometimes, I thought you had one?)
Well, if not, remember that I have the spare body. I seem to think you & Paul have lots of bits.
Perhaps "Frankenflorian" is a possibility?

Then we need to enthuse Gricey (in 2 weeks time!) to get his happening.
Dave is bound to be there -
We could have a fleet of Flories in 1012! :lol:

Cheers, Matt.

Oz does have a florian but its more parts than anything else i think (as im eyeing off all the other spares i want!) I did strip a rather used florian in the past and kept as much as i could of it, there are some other florians out there!

i must say a nice reasonable priced Florian would be a welcome addition to the ever increasing garage.
might just score a buy like Mr FFFlliibbllleeessss. bargain of the century...
the Fiat just may have to go but that is only a fixer upper and flog the girl around the hills.
my Florian is the $200 special from Melbourne in the classic isuzu on facebook. a bit past being a restore, parts only.

Thanks for the offer, Matt.

Sounds like a proper bargain, Gricey. Maybe you can find a good KB dash pad, though I haven't seen a good one in a while. I can help with an ashtray. But bonnet badge, hmmm, might be a next project for our queensland friend.
I agree, the hardest ingredient is time! :roll:
Inta the GT mate, must be nearly finished!

If possible, bring us a photo to Coona. Green, hey? Unusual.

See you soon,
Cheers, Matt.

Gricey,
Just to give the reaction I gave you at Coona to your photo,That's TOO GOOD not to bring to the road.Maybe in time for Merimbula? Could we make a Florian class, instead of "Other Isuzu"? We'll need numbers! OZ? Mr Flibbles? Dave? (We know we got you!) Denny? Third time lucky, Carol? Other random Florian owners?
Bring 'em on! :)
Cheers, Matt.

I really enjoy driving her, she is reliable, comfortable, roomy and easy to maintain, only needing service items.
:D Cheers, Matt.
