Those photos are unreal rory!!! And yep, Sue Ransom drove a V6 Capri. There was a bit of a story in AMC letters a few issues back about it.

thanks for posting these rory, the first one is the ad. michael tate found in an '83 auto action, the second is of the car at adelaide int. raceway in 1985, the third is malalla 2005.
the previous owners son had run a 1 min.18.7 sec. lap so i have a time to try and match !
the rebel wheels are the same ones that were put on when the larger flares were attached, around '79 or '80.....the third or front flutes are still there and visible under the front flares.
except for the bonnet and boot which are 'glass, the rest of the panels are still the originals from sandown '70 !, plenty of damage and bog over the journey but !
the nose was changed for janson's ownership as part of the reqirement to update to the current spec cars.(some things dont change eh!)
there are plenty of pics in the old mags which show both BJD-440 and BOI-812(KRK-720) competing during 'late '71 and all '72.
BOI-812 was introduced in round 6 of the '71 arc as the bond/ shep. car which is why it is the car photographed as the champ. winner for '71. BJD had been used for the first 5 rounds to put bond/shep into an unbeatable position and the new car was introduced with some improvements. cheers laz

My point earlier in the post..and I respect him to death...but Harry is mistaken..firstly..BOI-812 is a NSW rego number...couldnt be registered in VIC in 1970 and driven to NSW.(plus it is a NSW 1971 issue number).secondly..correct on 1971..my 1971 Bathurst LC XU1 was BHF-156....a 1971 issued NSW rego number...I know this because in July 1970 when I bought my HT 350 Monaro (the white one in a different post) and it was issued with new plates they were AOU-154...and the issues went in sequence.

Willo you are SSSOOO Australian!..Luv ya!


AND along with willo, I'm glad there are still some blokes and sheilas that do talk Australian and not have all of those Americanisms.

Top car sagman, great to see that these gems are not lost to a wreckers crusher, backyard hacker or simply just locked up in a garage for no one to see.

Don't those girls look great :spoton: Top sheilas :rockon:
Do any of these look familiar

This scan was taken out of an article that was in MAN magazine from January 1973 which featured Brock & Bond.
Now mind you, I only got this magazine for this article and definitely not for all of the pics of those lovely semi-naked beauties :blink:

BUT some ol' graffiti artist got hold of my piece of Torana/Brock/Bond memorabilia and put his moniker on it :spoton:

Posted Image

He also graffitied the glove-box of my SS Hatch :clap:

rory the number platesin the early 70s didnt really go in sequence. im talking about N.S.W plates. in 64 eh holden plates started with D. in the early 70s they started reusing old numbers. ive had LC torries with original plates ranging from AIJ - 2-71 BHA -7-70 CQY-12 71. there was a wide range in the letters.

I was talking about NSW plates...and they did generally run from "A" in 1970...through from there. Previous to 70 you are correct..they issued randomly but it was alphabetical fillin from then on...there were to many cars being registered.There was a HUGE shitfight when NSW got to "R" as SA used the letter from the start of their new plates in the late 60s/early 70s (see page 1 AMC Issue 8)and they threatened to sue NSW Govt for "encrouching" on "their" number sequence. NSW told them to get stuffed and kept going. My interest in this was simple..The factory racing Charger..think it was Geoghan or Chivas...not important...had the number plate RDM-007....never forgot it...those are my initials! :spoton: There might have been leftover plates in some Motor Registrys ..mainly regional...they took ages to catch up to the City...but they ran in sequence for bloody sure.

Sue drove with Christine in the 73 ,but not a Torana (an Alfa) .And the 1970 the girls drove the Linamint, Colin Bond drove the yellow by himself. In 71 Brockie also drove alone.They didn't even have a water bottle in the car .

Ha ha ha, that was as close as I could get to a water bottle!!!

Thanks for a great read fellas!
Amazing stuff.

You blokes are walking encyclopedias!!!

I saw this car at Sandown Historics last year, I stood near by as they started it up and remember the beaming smiles of all around as they gave the blown six a rev. Enjoyed learning the history of this old warrior, great read and I really think AMC should get a hold of this story.

Actually, the factory E38 Chargers were RDM-558 (Norm Beechey's Shell car), RDM-559 (Geoghegan's spare car), RDM-560 (Geoghegan's Bathurst '71 car - the plate is currently on a Volvo 850) and RDM-561 (Chivas's Bathurst '71 car - the plate is currently on my mate's E49). You can still get these 'R' and 'S' plates reissued in SA.

FWIW also, my parents bought a new (superseded) HT Kingswood from Boyded Bankstown in August 1970 and it was registered BGR-602.
