Thanks guys, I'll try and get some photos. How do you put them on here?

I do own acreage which helps with a large collection. At the moment they are stored all over the place(off my block) until I can build the next shed. Would like to get a little bigger security fence so when they all come home, they're safe. A number of them are in various states of overhaul but I'll get a few up for you.

The main problem now is I'm becoming the last resort for many people now before the crushers, so covered space is the priority, even if I can't get to looking at the car for a while.

Will have another 1970 1800 deluxe next weekend and very good chance of a one owner 1976 929 coupe super deluxe(with the flat nose front) not long after that.

Damn, I've really gotta fix up the fuel door and refit it, sticks out a bit without it.

There boys, Chris has caught the work drive car here at one of our club outings.

Crikey what a collection! I like old Mazdas but for me the Colts sound like the absolute stars in your shed!

Thanks Michiel,

I do love my Mazda's but really enjoy all the old school Japanese makes and models. The colts were on their way to the scrap metal yard and I couldn't let that happen. The early Colt still needs a lot of work but the 1100F is complete and running. I've found a 3 door version of them recently so I'll have to rescue it as well. The same yard had a 1968 Isuzu Wasp ute, Toyota Crown utility and a 1963 Datsun Bluebird station wagon which have a fair chance of heading home too. He also has a early and I mean early Toyota bus. It's before the Light bus range so I would say an early 60's version, it is so cool!

Hey Ben, I'm getting a few photo's together of what's at home at the moment. I'm hoping this year to have one on the big sheds built so a lot more of them can come out of hiding and come home to roost. Bit of a funny world over here with old stuff, plenty of vultures around who aren't overly nice!

Just seeing if I'm getting this photo thing![/img] Nice it's working, right it's a little rough but this is a 1964 B1500, BUB61 chassis. You won't see too many of these around and all wiki info on them is my doing!
