One of 54..........sad.

Get even the insignificant bits mate, Gricey was excited to find the little corner piece on the inside of the rear side window in my old yeller, and Greg the little chrome driprail joining piece. All bits are hard to find.
Cheers, Matt.

thats a pity, Dave

I know glenn the seats I had in mind to send to the 90 in Adelaide ....such a shame ..but I don't believe its been flattened this graveyard was way out of town . I never thought id be back but now in the pr90 seat I realize I should have taken more notice etc where exactly it was it was a winding track into the forest till the cars were seen ..I really think its still there ..I guess if the contact thought about some dollars for his time may be deifferent ..I will still chase ...somehow ...phone calls in area ...wish me luck ..davo

well I went to cairns 2 days before the contact told me the cars had been crushed (I doubt it) ....just there was no $$$ in it for him ..the long and short of it was when I first went to cairns and was excited about picking up this 90 he drove me into the hills some 10mins from his place to the car graveyard ..dumb me at that time was so excited about the car I was to see didn't even take notice exactly where we had gone ..and once we arrived I was then totally deflated when I saw ''the car'' so the trip back was more .ah shit..............I was in cairns went to the area where I thought and had made various calls in the area at garages ,pubs etc ...I went out for 2 hrs on my last day ..to no avail ...I have not finished yet ..I think its still there ..I will find it I will be up there again soon and will get on the piss with my contact ( I will drink the address out of him ) just want the bits left for the guys in need ... my other red 90 is not for sale yet its in Victoria....in a sad way as well ....hers a pic of me at cairns besides chasing cars I do entertain for a job cheers davo
