An Australian Twincam for sale in the UK

Recommended Posts

Record heatwave at the moment for the next few days, it will strip the hide of you if you go out into the sunshine. It was 47 degrees C in the shade where both cars are. So sleeping under the air-conditioner during the day and working on the cars at night. Never though the best time to work on car brakes was 2 am in the morning.

 

You cant even get an ice-cream at the beach from Mr Whippy.

That'll be a bit more coming out my pension fund !

 

Col, I though the first retirement advice given to everyone is dont blow your pension fund on booze strippers and cars?

 

That Australian Twincam sold for the equivalent of 45k pounds. So thats a good 20k under what I have seen asked for the British ones. Although I think that may have been a fantasy price not what the guy actually got for it. While thats a good price in a market where its all about dinosaur engined muscle, proper cars like that usually go unnoticed. So who would pay that kind of money in Australia? I suspect its in a cargo container right now on the way to blighty. Col was this you?

After much mocking and ridicule from here and abroad as to my lack of enthusiasm and procrastination for working on my Twincam I went all out and bought these decals for the booster. I have invited some of the old gang of Escort owning friends for a day of discussion and implementation of this most meticulous and involved project, deciding on how to fit them over beers and a BBQ. Surely at least ten hours work there? Betcha they go on crooked. This is some hardcore restoration here so no more of those snarky comments about me not taking an interest.

With simple clean lines you would think it impossible to make a Twincam look ugly?

You can in Australia apparently if you put some effort into it!

Blimey!

You're right.

It looks a little odd.
