A couple of vehicles worthy of preservation :wink:

If it was in the UK they wouldnt be left there for long, they would be snapped up for preservation but unfortunately we dont have the same type of presrevation movement over here so alot of things get left to fall apart.

The Dodge looks like the one built new by Alan Denning for Les Miers of Coachways, Murwillumbah, in 1958. Les became Rex Law's General Operations Manager at Redline during his later career in the 1960's.
It carries quite a lot of history and was on Wally Horwood's property at Borallon, where it seems this picture was taken.
