    PF land yacht club

    I figured with Marv taking delivery of his new land bound sailing vessel we should celebrate the wretched excess of full size American cars. Post up your land yachts!

    Brought this out of hiding this morning for Shannons cars and coffee. My mate likes it a little bit so I threw him the keys.


    I've owned it 10 years this month. It really needs some love but at the moment I'm just happy to cruise it as is

    That's a great looking car!

    I was very close to a deal on a black '61 Lincoln Continental sedan prior to spotting the Valiant. It being in Tassie slowed me down, and finding a spot to park it that was handy enough that I'd use it was an even bigger challenge.

    Also if anyone has a rear bumper in good condition for a '64 let me know. Bit of a hail Mary and will probably end up with a repo alloy one I think.

    i love performance cars large and small but nothing compares (for me) to a 60s full size boat with a big block (or +383cui).

    Ill take some better pics of mine today once i wash it

    PS when will we do the PF Land Barge meet?

    Are you saying it is smaller than 50"?? Haha

    I've convinced nopics that I need a bike, followed my one of these. Our garage fits the Pajero, to fit my Triton leaves about 50mm front and back would need to widen the driveway and do away with pergola to get something like this that I clearly need in there.

    And to add to the thread this is a mates Impala which would be a good purchase

    It's not a popularity contest dude, I'm just keen to see what everyone has lurking in their shed so I thought this might spark a few people who don't have build threads or don't generally whore themselves on here

    Mrs Jones Caddy fit in my garage, which is 6m long, literally with an inch at either end to spare, if that's any help.

    I have a inner desire for a mid 70's Caddy with a 500 Cuber.
    Not only are they long, they are way wide. The '74 sedan I looked at was my arm spand plus 5 inches wide plus mirrors either side. It ruled it out of the house I had at the time as it would not fit through the pillars of the garage.
