    Bingo, here we go looks like an early 80's picture of New Oak Ford, 1A ferntree Gully Rd, now called Van World but the dealership yard is still there at least. NOF were there until recent years and the rusty old green TC XLE I had 25 years ago sold new from there...

    Here's how it was in Dec 2009 not long before they relocated.

    Mainly just general interest stuff from Jan & Feb 1974, including that boy from East Preston who was hit by a car and two of his mates died, hopefully he's doing OK and should be around 52-53 years by now.

    We may not find much Cortina stuff until nearing the TD release, should be around Aug or so.

    Been awhile, here's another two from the hard drive archives, the Copper Bronze XLE was put up for sale in QLD on the 15th of Sept 2013, the yellow one came up in WA on 24th of Feb 2009.
