I rememeber when I was a kid, my grandfathers cotton farm had a 'Tip" like this one, they all the farmers from around the area used to drop their shit off and there was always old cars in there.. shame I was to young to.. the memories..

Craig this looks like a local tip or a farm tip...am I correct... Have you been to the curlewis tip, there was a couple cars there last time I went past...

yeah wayne,

another farm tip they are full of goodies,dating from many years ago.

one place i went to at the pilliga,had 3 houses,one from the early 1900,s then one from the 50,s and the one they were living in,it was amazing walking back in time within 100meters,everything was left untouched,trucks vintage cars,and things from times gone,it was a family farm,and in the 50,s they made big money with wool and built new ,and bought everything new,so many good stories from out in the bush.

dragged a eh ute and other holden goodies out of there.

never looked about curlewis yet.

i was waiting for someone to pic that up,couldn,t sneek past you mate.Posted Image

i scaned some negatives and frocked if i was doing them again,or they could be export specials hehehe.
these pics were 10 years or so ago and i didn,t have a digital camera,painful way to get your pictures back then.

stroker208 normally it is nice and dry,but at the moment its very wet,i hate mowing the lawn dust is better.

neil,had a similar story when i moved here went to the local tip and there was a hq ls monaro painted red with the front panels missing and engine and box gone,all put in a ute and the tip operator pushed it up in the pile and destroyed a very good monaro,what a shame,and there has never been another.

A silver XW Fairmont wagon.

That would be a pretty rare bird I would think.

My dad had a metallic blue one just like it when I was a kid.

I think it is the LTD equivalent of a ZH Fairlane.

Craig, is that where the white HQ Sandman came from?

Hay mate.... If you look closely I think you will find the 4 cylinder lj firewall is Very different to the 6 cylinder car...... Even the pedal box assy is different. I'm unsure about the tunnel section but the firewall is definitely different! Maybe you should grab that other freebie while it is on offer?
