I'm pretty sure Pete said on one of the FB groups he wants to get back into doing another Aust Valiant... Remember his Val he sold just before buying the 59 Dodge..

Hi Matte, I did find myself another AP5 Valiant. Its a 1964 Regal Safari, not many around in this colour combo with the cream and red interior. This is a real low 51,000 mile car and is in pretty nice condition, a 20c size bit of rust to fix and thats it. I really did make a mistake selling my black sedan and miss it allot so I needed to get into another one. I love the wagons and am very happy with this one. There will be some changes to it with adding a white roof, venetians, a sunvisor, widened steelies with wide whitewalls of course. I'm never discounting owning another FL as I still love them, but will not sell another car to get one.
Here's some pics of him, I called him Cecil.

That's sweet Pete. You must be stoked with that. Always had a soft spot for all the Safari wagon models. Is that the original paint? I do know what you mean. I love the FL cars but am getting into the Aust Val cars more and more. Wouldn't mind a ute.

Funny that you called the old boy Cecil and the colour combo..

Not a Val but my old Holden which is called Cecil. That was my pops name and he gave me this in 96. He had it since new and I used to play in it as a kid. Rare mayan gold and red interior combo still original. Made me laugh seeing you Val with the colour combo and what you named the old boy.

Hi Matte, thanks mate very happy. I cant believe that your HR is called Cecil also, and nearly the same colours. It looks like a nice car mate, cherish those cars that have family history mate.
