Default Cooly Rocks On 2017

It's Thursday night, hotrods and kustoms and muscle cars as well as some nice old bikes been rocking in since last weekends Wintersun II at Murwillumbah.
Coolangatta -Tweed Heads bordertowns are abuzz with 50s 60s 70s nostalgia already.
I'm out cruising on the Vegas, taking in the scenery, blatting my pipes and stopping and chatting to people.
Spotted this mint 54 Buick before so snapped off a couple and now I'm in the pizza shop about to tuck into an El Paso and coke!
More to come. I'll find some look old bikes to shoot too.

Out of my league mate....
If it was a roughie that needed work yeah maybe.
I have to stop myself from buying projects all the time.
Gotta look at a rolling shell of a '61 SV1 Valiant in next few days, can get it cheap but no interior or running gear.
It's the first shape finned Valiant sold here. Very Cool.
Like a scaled down 62 Dodge polara I guess, came with 225 Slant but perfect for a 318,340,360 small block or
383,440, biggie....... Or a BIG crate Hemi!!!!
Moparrrrrrrrrr
I'll flick up a pic when I'm lookin at it.....or one similar.
They were peculiar to Oz, very similar to the Dodge Lancer you had there but much better styled rear.
IMHO

Now Friday night and as we sit in the pancake diner the sound of big internal combustion engines fills the air.
Riding through plastic suburbia earlier today down the Gold Coast highway I ended up running alongside a rigid Shovelhead chopper, every red light we chatted, young rider barely 20 and his chick on the back, loud exhaust sounding similar to mine...really cool old school chop!
Later as we Park the Benz, well it's raining and we got the 4 kids so no way we gonna fit in a 5 seater so it's our two normal drive cars tonight. Got a great Park in the main street walk 20, yards and there's the chopper and the young guys got his headlight out fixing it.
We shake hands and I get a couple of pix of his chop.
Ones so blurry I deleted it, here's the other.
All the work of him and his mate in a backyard shed.
Youth of Australia has hope yet!

Bloody rained all day today. So I spent it finishing off the repairs in the door jambs on my 1965 Chrysler Valiant.
Not much point going downtown really in the rain.
Coupla mates went there around lunchtime and calling in at my workshop on their way home.
Said a lot of cars and bikes had left already.
Who wants to leave a nice oldcool car out in the rain anyway???
Will probably take the kids down if the weather fines up a bit tomorrow.
Anyway here's pix of what I got done today on the Val.

Gonna look nice when it's finished hey?
Resisted the urge to paint some wild colour as I generally like to restore stuff to its tagged paint colour that it was made with.
Some exceptions of course if it's a really horrible colour.
That gold/bronze 74 wagon that someone bought last week I modified the paint mix enough to suit my eye.
Left the tinkers out that gave it a cold greenish gold.
Just mixed the main two together, namely Yellow Gold and Metallic (can't remember which one, would've been whatever I've got the most of)


Yeah the wagon sold, after many lowball offers, and ridiculous swap offers of cars that are much more modern but plummeting in value, Eg an 05 Ford Falcon Turbo 6 Ute.......now there's a car that wouldn't have had the living shit thrashed out of it at B+S balls all over the country!
Or a Honda V Twin 400 Cruiser....that one actually stirred some research as I'm looking for a learner bike for my pitgirl and backrest girl....We are restricted here remember
...I think she will end up on a Scout of that unmentionable other brand as they are a good thing....trouble is with a bit of work it'd blow me away in a straight line and possibly around corners as well!
!

I researched the 1986 V Twin Honda, googled sources says they're a good thing, also that the 600 version is better and it still falls within the learner restrictions in place in our state....
Food for thought and they look to hold their value and also are a good canvas for a Kustom bobber.....
Anyway when she said she would rather keep the wagon and drive it as an everyday car, well that dampened that offer.
Last week I got offered 500 less than my price and replied to the rejection with my reasons. Namely all the work I'd done to bring the wagon up to my standards, as well as the fact that tens of thousands of car, bike and nostalgia freaks, myself included would be in town for the 3 day event Cooly Rocks On.
I was fairly confident it'd sell over this last weekend.
The prospective buyer decided to come to the party as he liked the car and even though he had not seen it other than in my pix he had seen the detailed honest description as well as detailed pictures of every facet of the vehicle.
As well as my motives for selling.
He made a decision and put the cash in my bank the next day.
Now he's gotta arrange freight car carrier to truck it almost 2000 kms south to the bottom of Australia.
He's where the 12 Apostles are (google it)
And it ain't the last supper.

How good am I at railroading my own thread!
The Cooly Rocks On has been officially declared rained out as of this morning, a mate who has a coffee van business was there tryna make a buck selling quality coffee.....
Anyway I strongly suspect this will be the last year that it's held.
What started out as a small car club weekend event about 25-30 years ago grew into a monster. Was taken over by a greedy individual who milked it for a few years then took it to another town much further south where it's floundering.
Local council then joined with local business to keep the event going under a different name as it's now an established tradition on the long weekend here.
But the council, as councils do got greedy too and well it's a long involved story I won't go into, except to say I have a strong feeling that this rain was the death-knell of the event.
Two enterprising member of the Muscle Car club I'm a member of have kicked off that show we went to last weekend, it's a reasonably priced for everyone event with lots happening, geared around cars bikes nostalgia with driving events, rockabilly bands all day, cruises around the town of Murwillumbah.
And it's not designed to fleece the car owners that enter their vehicles that come there to have fun.
Bottom line we all wanna have fun....don't we?

On another note the 50th Anniversary of the Winternationals escaped the weather that blighted the coastal events....dunno how the Caloundra Beachfest fared, it's on the same weekend too.
So much happening around this area at this time of the year, it's a pity mother nature won't co operate with some decent weather.
Anyway seeing as how I didn't get back down there again this weekend, not yet anyway, and there's bound to be a few die hard stragglers there who've booked accommodation for the whole long weekend.
Anyway I'll post the other pix I took Friday night when we went there with our kids in the drizzling on off rain.
Roll em Fred!

Seems I have a bent for GM products,
First up a wild Kustom from a Beatnix club member I suspect, heavy body mods to transform a sedan coupe or wagon. Not sure which, into a ute.
Looks to be a '58 but Wether it's a Buick or an Olds I'm really not sure.... Think it's an Olds....was gonna have a closer look over the weekend but never got back.
EDIT...just had a better look at pix and I reckon it's a 58 Buick Century flower car (nuthin to do with hippies)
2 shots of it, sadly the protruding ram tubes were hooded against the rain.....so yeah fully functional old school intake!
Next the FJ Holden an Aussie legend, obviously styled after the pre-war Buick's.
Next a 65 Holden in bare metal with clearcoat.
I could write a whole chapter about the 65 HD Holden which was on release dubbed Holden Disaster
But I won't.....not now...this post has grown far too long and only the die hards will still be reading.
Ok not quite as long as BBobs posts which are about boring politics anyway.... Sorry bob!
Anyway in an effort to keep it brief.... Yeah sure!
There's a low-down Caddy......
You want more?
I got more pix.....
