Rabbit holes & collectors

Eric Waples Albion Park, NSW

In response to your Editorial last issue: Maybe it is rabbit holes said collectors go down, but in some twisted way I can relate to what they do.

Attached are a couple of pics from a massive auction of Ford vehicles held at Castlereagh near Penrith back in 1996. All of these were from the one vendor. I have some other pics of the trucks but strictly speaking your mag is about cars.

There were numerous side valve V8 and V12 engines on pallets, some already reconditioned. I had never seen anything like it before.

And there were two of the 59 Skyliner Fords, both red/ white.
