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.
