OK I guess I should do this in order of year.

1955 Cadillac Superior hearse and 1955 Cadillac Series 75 limousine.
I got these as a package from Northern British Columbia and shipped them to Sydney in early 2014.

1958 Cadillac Series 75 limousine.
This photos were taken in Portland where I stayed with friends and spent time working on the car in their workshop but unfortunately ran out of time (long story) and had to haul it to John's and leave it there to be shipped down to Oz soon.

This was on the trip to John's yard with Vern and Karen (August 2017). I can't thank them enough for helping me !!

My first car a 1959 FC Holden.
I got this in 1987 and it still has the factory plastic on the seats and 85,000m on the clock.

My 1960 AP3 Chrysler hearse by R.F.Weber.
I found this in Tasmania in 2003 and flew down without a return ticket lol I meant buying her.
She has 60,000m and drives like new.

My 1963 EH Holden panelvan ... well not mine anymore as I gave it to my son at his birth in 2009.
Hopefully in a couple of years well start a father & son restoration as I've been collecting parts for many years.
I found her at a servo down the coast in 1993.

https://i.imgur.com/ZE97G5H.jpg

My first hearse ... a Canadian export RHD 1968 Chevrolet Impala stationwagon.
It came with all the original rear interior, seat and trim. I've since converted it back to a grocery getter.

My other Canadian export RHD 1968 Chevrolet Impala 4 door hardtop (we call it a 'pillarless').

https://i.imgur.com/iydhukn.jpg

My first Pommy car lol and it's not a bad unit at all.
1975 Daimler DS420 hearse built by Woodall Nicholson in Halifax.
I bought this in early 2017 with the below Ford, from the funeral director in Adelaide.

https://i.imgur.com/wb2Zcbr.jpg

https://i.imgur.com/8FL8ujG.jpg

And yeah I finally bought a Ford lol well it came as a package deal with the Daimler.
1987 XF Ford with a FE LTD front clip and was built by Spanmor Limousine in Melbourne.

A bloke needs a decent shed lol can you pick mine ?

Unfortunately I've run out of space in the shed and now some cars need to sit outside but hopefully that'll be fixed up soon.

Thanks mate :cool: hey and I'm good with Steve or Evil.

I had a State Manager years ago in a very large company that knew that only my mother does the Stephen thing and decided to used it in front of his boss ... his boss laughed in his face when I called him mother ... I got along real good with the big suit after that lol not so well with the State Manager unfortunately https://i.imgur.com/zuFaTA3.gif

I've also got a couple of 70s Holdens but I call them the modern cars and they need to be sold real soon, as I want a fleet of Cadillacs. My plan is to have a limo business up and running in the next year or so. I even purchased an appropriate name and phone number lol for anyone on Facebook please check out & LIKE my page https://www.facebook.com/gravelimos

Stretch, Your shed is the one that would hold my garage and at least three others. Billy will love it. You already know how much I love your hearse's. If you ever need a second driver I will work for free.

https://i.imgur.com/CMLcqVW.gif British influence were https://i.imgur.com/zuFaTA3.gif I'll have that addressed.

The FC is basically a shrunken 55 Chev Belair with a 56 Chevy pickup front but jokes aside I'm curious as to what British styling you see. Both the '58/'59 FC & '63/'64 EH were designed in Detroit.

I keep offering to send you a hearse or limo but you keep telling me I'll never get them once you've worked &*ot5r your magic. I need a bigger shed now as it's full but then I'd need more land too. You're more than welcome to come over and drive anytime.

Steve funny thing is we're all Stephens ... must be something about us, as my kid isn't the only one with an awesome ride. I haven't seen any updates on the Camaro lately but that's probably due to me being slack on the forum.
