    As long as the vehicle is over 30 years of age we get historic registration with left hand drive cars.
    I some times think we have more classic USA muscle down under than we do Aussie muscle cars!!
    To give you an idea my 1970 SS Camaro (matching numbers / 350 / 4 speed / would be classed above average good condition) worth around $60K AUD, to get the same in a Aussie muscle car Ford or Holden (chev) in would cost me $150K AUD or more!!
    American muscle represents good value in Australia!!
    Cheers Darren

    This guy showed up in the shop yesterday. Looks sort of like a stunk bug but with super long antennas on its head. Also been seeing some big Beatles looking critters. Will get a pic of the next one I see.

    I hear that! Spent some time. In papua new guinea and next to Australia, they might even have you beat. The meat eating ostrich like birds that sometime steal and eat babies was my all time favorite.
    yeah, spent some time in papua new guinea and they might even have Australia beat for mother nature’s ways to kill you. I especially like the ostrich like bird that was a meat eater and occasionally carted away babies to feast on. What the hell?

    Got buzzed by this dude carrying its prize. Cicada killers. My advice leave em alone. (Says the guy taking a picture and testing his luck getting close holding a dollar bill)
