    Default Cool Cars on the Gold Coast

    The streets of the Gold Coast are a gold mine of hot and/or expensive cars. Being up 34 floors for the weekend gave me the opportunity to shoot some from a perspective not usually enjoyed.

    I also thought some of you non Aussies might find it interesting to see some of the cooler vehicles around here.

    Thought I'd start with some of our Police cars ...
    "Naughty naughty. Where are your helmets??"









    A Surf Life Saving 'Babe Watch' vehicle


    A big 'Yank Tank' as we call them ...


    Ford Falcon XY .... looks like it might be a Phase 3 with that 'Shaker' scoop in the bonnet. If so, this was the fastest 4 door production car in the world back in 1971 I think. It was Australia's fastest 4 door sedan for over a decade.


    GMH (General Motors Holden) Commodore. Built and designed here in Aussie, the 2 door version is called a Monaro here but is sold as a Pontiac in the US, and a Vauxhall in the UK.


    more soon ...

    You must have the film in backwards because all the steering wheels are on the wrong side!!!

    I love that 71 Ford Falcon. I would take it over any other car you have photographed.

    Thanks Marko and Tiger

    You've picked the hairdresser special there Marko ... stick with the g-string

    Hey Tiger ... good Choice. The Falcon of that era has a cult following. The Falcon Phase 3 GT-HO is a classic. Modified 351 4V Clevo V8, Detroit Locker 9" diff. That 'Shaker' scoop is attached to the carby so it shakes when you rev her up ... hence the 'Shaker' name.

    My dream car would be a 71 purple Hemi Cuda convertible!!! That's about a 2 million dollar car. You buy redone ones for about $250,000
