Today is auction day.

A slightly different Mk.4 chassis.

This is Kym's 4A in its glory days.
And below is a photo of the very naked chassis as Kym prepares for a comprehensive rebuild.
It has twin rollover hoops, although the left hand one has been chopped off some time in its career. None of the Mk.4 owners have seen this on any other chassis. Don Hall, who ran a successful speed shop in Perth in the 60s produced these photos taken in the Bolwell "factory" way back when.
They wouldn't have been water damaged if Barry didn't have them in his door pocket while driving his Mk.4 in the rain. Anyway, it might be fair to assume that this is the same car.
Anthony, this would be your old Mk.4.

Observation Trial.

How many people noticed the Bolwell Cookie Truck on the Beaudesert Fun Run?

A trophy well deserved.

Considering the opposition this man was up against.
And I'm sure this man thoroughly deserved his pineapple too.
Photos by Tina of course.

Brabham in red.


With the runaway concours winner this year it was really hard to find a flaw. But did you know that Peter completed the restoration over 10 years ago. Here's some shots of the car at the Leyburn Sprints and Mt. Coot-tha Hillclimb in 2009.
I'm looking forward to seeing it come to live in SA in 2 year's time.
Here it is on a farm in Elgindale, Qld before Peter bought it.

Another Aussie manufacturer.

The GTZ is a mid engine sports car designed to reawaken the excitement and pleasure of driving!
Manufactured on the Sunshine Coast, Australia, by Suncoast Sports Cars, as an individually constructed vehicle (ICV), or more commonly known as a kit car, the GTZ is an affordable and rewarding project engineered for the road.
In developing the GTZ as an ICV, Suncoast Sports Cars has strived to ensure that it is cost-effective, easy-to-build and accessible for as many people as possible. There are no exotic parts and the majority of mechanical components are sourced from a locally available single donor.
The GTZ is based on a proven mid engine chassis design making for a well-balanced and agile handling sports car. A great project for anyone looking for the opportunity to create and drive a truly bespoke vehicle.

Meeting of the body builder professionals.

Other things happen at Easter time.

Like the Teakle Auto Sprint at Port Lincoln. It's an annual event and a lot of fun.

That's where you'll find Ross Allen. Here's a few photos of Ross and the Monaro at this year's event.
Look but don't touch.
Guess the real one.

Port Lincoln would be an ideal place for a Bolly Easter. I can't see the Sandgropers objecting.
