Stumbled across a good old school car yard and shop in Oz.

I thought of posting this in the through the windshield thread, as I happened to drive past this place, but I was in my Jap daily driver.

This place sells F100 stuff, parts etc, beds, and advertises build work, hot rods etc, I believe. He also sells some old cars. I have often seen his ads, just happened to drive past and nearly fell out of my seat.

Some photos are not great, it was near dusk when I spotted this place. Don't know why the photos came out so small.

Long live the darkside and those with the courage to travel there.

Oh, yes! I want! I want! Looks like they've got a bit of everything there. Those three cabins look like they are sitting on top of the shipping container? Image number four (the black beast) has me intrigued.

Hi, how are you doing, that picture is pretty dark. Looking at the original, there is a cab and front fenders behind the F100 and looks like a pile of parts. It was late, he was shut so I could not go in and check it out. Years ago, when the original owner had the shop on Brisbane's northside, I looked at a 56 there, later running gear, Jag front end for $16 thousand, would have been good, though I think expensive for the time, especially as it needed work to finish.

I don't think this bloke gives anything away either. Here is this shops contact details. You would have seen his ads no doubt, Peter. Not cheap, the F100 rolling shell out the front, I think is $6000, and it is stripped bare (not completely sure it is even a roller).

From his website 'in progress' section it looks like he is building a '54 with a '51 grille.

I think it looks pretty good so far.
Yeah, Nev. I have never dealt with these guys, but see their glass stuff on eBarf.
