Rab­bit holes & col­lec­tors

Unique Cars - - JB'S DIARY -

In re­sponse to your Ed­i­to­rial last is­sue: Maybe it is rab­bit holes said col­lec­tors go down, but in some twisted way I can re­late to what they do.

At­tached are a cou­ple of pics from a mas­sive auc­tion of Ford ve­hi­cles held at Castlereagh near Pen­rith back in 1996. All of these were from the one ven­dor. I have some other pics of the trucks but strictly speak­ing your mag is about cars.

There were numerous side valve V8 and V12 en­gines on pal­lets, some al­ready re­con­di­tioned. I had never seen any­thing like it be­fore. And there were two of the 59 Sky­liner Fords, both red/ white.
