    Jimmijim, I heard when any car was imported into OZ back around that era they had to have at least 30% local content, and I think the upholstery was part of the deal. My other Hawk has the same seat style even though they are buckets. If you ordered power steering it was usually a Bendix servo and ram, with a Massey Ferguson pump.

    I will never look at someone the same way again when they say that they are an "adrenaline junkie"! LH

    You have my sincere sympathy. Nothing is worse than a person from one country trying to talk in local "lingo".
    My wife (who is English) hates it when I do my terrible English or Scottish accent...I make Dick Van Dyke (with his terrible Mary Poppins accent) sound like Winston Churchill.
    Why the UK hasn't deported Modonna (and her phoney accent) is byond my comprehension.

    Hey Ron, you got me, I actually live in Southern California, I've just been pretending to be an Aussie[:0] I retieved the Hawk from a town called Dalby, it's about a three hour drive west of me, (I'm on the east coast about half way up), to put it in perspective, what you guys call the 'Outback', starts about another two hours drive further west. The area around Dalby is very flat, very boring to drive to, and the Cops are thick along the highway, I guess catching the bored drivers who put their foot down.

    Only some of the snakes down her actually chase you, and as now is their breeding season they are a little techy, but yeah the snake catcher said the King Brown really wanted a piece of him. The main non-venomous snakes around are pythons, (we call them carpet snakes because the pattens on their backs look like old fashion carpet pattens), they will bite you if you rile them, but mostley they just high tail it when disturbed.

    I went through more than a couple cans of spider spray "extincting" a passel of Black Widows this year. Final count: 17 of them under the Studebaker.

    Last month, we had the first snake on the property that I've seen in years. Big, and I mean big, gopher snake slithered right past my ankles into my garage to cool off under the Pontiac on one of our hotter days. I'd known he was around because there were no gophers and he kept leaving his skins laying about

    We've used up so many cans of wasp/hornet spray-- I have lost count!!!
    There are fewer hornets buzzing around here these days--
    it makes for much easier Stude re-arranging out back... [^]

    Gotta go get to it-- later.

    Hey Matt, that shot with the Hawk on the edge of the 'tilt tray' looks just like Southern California with the Gum trees in the background.

    Hang on... the snakes actually chase one about, there down under[?] YIKES![:0][}] And here I thought we had it bad with rattle snakes!

    I hate surprizes like that! Here where I live, the only snakes are Gopher Snakes. They won't even take a stand unless you corner them. I've grabbed them by the tail and dragged them out of harms way more than once. They like to sun themselves on two-lane blacktop druing the winter months.[B)]

    With some of the retired cars that have set here for months and years, I'm always wary about poking around in them after they've set undisturbed for a time. I've been confronted by Tomcats, possum, rodents, wasps and various spiders.[:0]

    I'm glad I wasn't visiting, I would have just grabbed that because it looked like brand new wind lace stashed under that carpet to me. [:0]
    Same here, that looked like later model corrugated wire sleeving to me.
