    I worked out on a farm property today & after sanding the floor i decided to go for a walk while waiting for the first coat to dry, I found lots of interesting old tin, first one i came across was an A model ford.

    there were lots of old 30's & 40's cars & trucks sitting along the creeks edge, then i came across a couple of 45 series utes ?
    this one had the chassis cut behind the cab and was fitted with some sort of pump to pump water from the creek, the body was completely rust free & the inside was mint, the speedo is showing only 37,000 miles :) there are 3 or 4 other complete 45 traybacks sitting around the farm & lots of old tractors, the farm has been in the same family for over 100 years, i am going back out to the farm in a few weeks & will take my camera with me & get some pics of all the cruisers, all the 45's out there are rust free with faded paint & very restorable, anyway i will get some better pics in a few weeks if any one is interested :)

    Nice :)
    More pics would be good mate.

    Are they interested in 'cleaning up' the property ?
    They could probably get some reasonable $$$ from the collector market.

    That old A #plate is probably worth hundreds (if not a grand) alone, in that original condition someone would snap it up for a classic or for the man cave.

    yeah will get some better pics and have a better look around when i go back out in a couple of weeks, she wants another room sanded & is thinking about a barter on the A model to get it done :) the wheels for the A are in the shed & a few more body panel & spare motor also, i told her i would think about it, always wanted an A & thats a good candidate for a roadster pickup project but i'm not sure if i want to go down the path of another hot rod project, the last one i built took me 6 years lol

    I think the old NSW number plate would be worth more than the vehicle.

    That is super cool.
    I love exploring places like that, just poking around and checking it all out, find it fascinating.

    Please more pics.

    About 20 years ago my dad rang a mate on the land in the Riverina and said , do you know anyone with an old car in the back paddock. I laughed but his mate said I do know some one.
    We went to visit, there were hundreds of cars, 50s built hot rods , old custom chop tops , sheds full of cars. A Wolseley hornet open wheeler used in a Grand Prix in Melbourne in the fifties.
    Anyway we drove away with a 24 Buick, almost complete . Lots of rotten wood and rust . It was a project that kept him going for another 15 years. Need up a great restoration . Sadly dads gone and more recently the Buick but there are places out there with so much if you try hard enough to find it
