  Great find Alex, that photo of Peter Warren Motors I'm old enough to remember that place it was on the corner of Mc Quarie St & Elizabeth Drive which is now Westfields shopping centre(I think, left Sydney about 15 yrs ago)  he sold VWs in those days, a little bit smaller than his dealerships today.  Thanks Roy

Notice the broken steering wheel on the first one?  Shocked I wonder how sore the driver was?  Huh

I'd say dead, not sore.

This is the rarely seen result of car crashes in the 50's. The road toll was over 1000 in the late 50's because of the lack of seat belts, non collapsible columns & no crumple zones. Anyone who tells you they would rather have an accident in an old car than a new one - show them this pic.

No arguement from me, but did you see the amount of red dust coming from the '59? I think structural rust might be a contributing factor.

I was actually trying to dig up a photo of a Falcon Taxi*, when I came across this. Don't think it's been posted before...



From City of Lake Macquarie's website. I love the dog in the foreground.

* Before you ask, I got the new Trax catalogue in the post today, and am sure the 80s De-Luxe Taxis didn't look like the one pictured. Found a pic of a HQ, but no XD. The HQ is more like I recall them, with a badge-shaped sign, which is nothing like the livery on this new Trax model. I think it has the decals lifted straight from the FC. This XE could be a De-Luxe, but too blurry to be sure.

I also turned up this, which is a fantastic photo, even if not FE/FC. It's a family owned fleet of Taxis, from Hamilton in NZ Victoria.



The full size version, and the pic is (C)  Blue Sky Photography.

Nice pics RET.  Something didn't look quite right about the fleet of NZ taxis in your last picture and I then realised they are Victorian taxi plates on the cars.  After looking at the website you linked, they say the taxis are from Hamilton in Victoria, Australia which makes more sense.

Of course they are. Roll Eyes The story talks about Kiwiland, and somehow I managed to completely miss the rather bold title that says Hamilton, Victoria. Nothing wrong with me...

Here's one from the family archives (otherwise known as shoebox number 3).  Taken about 1971, that's me in Dad's arms with Mum and my brother.  The FE's roofrack  is loaded and ready to go.  This particular FE belonged to my Grandmother and she gave it to Mum and Dad when she bought a Volkswagen beatle which later caught on fire (I was in the back seat at the time).  I reckon Mum and Dad got the better end of the deal with the FE even though in this photo it just looks like any other 15 year old Holden.
