gday pete i picked my f100 up from melbourne a few weeks ago, it made it back to adelaide in one piece, we got pulled over a few times by highway patrol but no probs there, it probably had something to do with the two dodgy fellas driving it wearing black jackets, black beanies ( we stayed in ballarat for a night, aka the coldest place on earth) and the fact the truck is matt black and no No. plates LOL funny trip but we were on a pemit so everything was cool

get a one way highway pass for the truck and drive it back but they may still pin ya for the tyres, or drive really really fast and dont stop.

'77 F100 from Sydney here. I've only had it for a couple of months but the thing is a joy to just look at. I'm hoping to get some nice pictures taken soon but until then I'll put the only ones I've got in the gallery.

Can't wait to see your '71 when it's finished, I was originally looking of that shape (67-72) but couldn't pass on the deal for my '77.

Cheers,
Corin

G'day all.
I'm a new user also joining FTE a month or two ago and have only just discovered this particular forum. Good to see a few aussies arround.

My wife and I have a 75 F100 and our current project a 66 F350 which we bought off ebay back in September. This truck will become our "Shop Truck" for our business. We also have a 64 Chev Impala convertible (Canadian built export model for GMH)which we use on the local "Zippel" Cruise nights here in Adelaide. Also a '27 T Roadster Hot Rod project which has gone on hold since the F350 arrived.

Too many projects too little time......and money.......lol.

Cheers..........Barry.

Better add me to the list I guess!

Hi There,

Newby from West Australia (Mandurah / Sth Yunderup).

Only took delivery of my F250 today so will have a ton of questions, as you can imagine!

Looking forward a lot to participation here!

Probably can't contribute a great deal yet on F trucks - but if anyone wants to know anything about fishing & boating downunder - then likely as not I can help out!

I do have my own website and forums on just those subjects, and will try and complete my profile to reflect the links etc!

Cheers n beers!
