Today Pat nibbs53 and I took the rust free 62 GT over to be shipped out to Australia along with the green 53 hardtop, green 56 skyhawk and the brown 58 supercharged silver hawk, I know they will all find good new homes and owners down under.

I think I remember the GT. Isn't that the one your family member was doing but lost interest? It was a pretty high price as I recall.

Still, gotta love rust free!

I hear what you're saying, and the proof is in the fact that it sold. I was just comparing it to others I've seen, like this one:

Of course, it depends if the car is as good as is represented. We know if you say something we can believe it. But this one would catch my eye a little quicker in that price range (and I vacation there enough that I could plan a trip and bring it home with me;)

Bob go look at it and check out the trunk and floors, and then see if it is worth the bucks, first red GT dash I have ever seen, mine sold for a good deal just to work on cleaning house some, lots of good extra parts also, extra grille, front parking lenses, tail light , ect. you would be surprised at the price but don't ask, .

Has anyone heard from the Moisleys?

I've been kinda wondering about Tony, his brother and Chantal.

The Moisley's are safe on the other side of Australia if you concern with them relative to the floods.

Boy, must be a rough life for Tony! First he spends most the summer here in the U.S., attends the international meet, then heads to Singapore for vacation. Damn, I could really suffer like that!:p:p:p:D

thanks for the info. I was a bit concerned. My geography is a bit weak on OZ. I do hope the rest of you fellows are all right too? Terrible buisness that, reminds me of the flooding that occured in and around the Midwest of our own country some years back.:( Very worrisome business.:(
