    And you stopped, knocked on the door and had a chat to the owner right?

    Or is that only something I do... 😇

    No, that's you.

    We should all do that more often.

    This one was spotted around the Toorak area a couple of weeks ago.image000000.jpg
    I reckon I know it. Looks like the numberplate is FC-101. If it is, I've been bush with it back when someone else owned it.

    I drove Misguided II up for a rego inspection the other week!

    Yes I do go and speak to the owner.

    PS: does anyone have a spare leather gearstick gater and retaining ring (the one on the engine cover) they are willing to part with?

    You won't find me on: faceplant; Scipe; Infragam; LumpedIn; ShapCnat or Twitting. I'm just not that interesting.

    Both the 101s in the pics are known to AULRO. I spoke to the owners son about 10 years ago through AULRO after seeing it at Austimer Beach.

    I believe the owner lives in Unanderra but the 101 often hangs around Thirroul and Austimer. It is good to see it still around - the pic in the thread looks as if it is around the northern suburbs of Wollongong its old stomping ground.

    The second one does indeed have the Vic number plate FC - 101. I believe the engine is a Chev 350 or something similar and runs LPG. It has big wheels. Here it is with its owner (cannot recall the name though) - again from about 10 years ago.

    I need one too

    I probably should have, but I didn't want to risk waking the sleeping 2 year old in the back seat
