    I can think of another 3 Gonnas on this side of the country: one in Brisbane and 2 in Victoria, plus the blue service car Domaine which is parked up in Ballarat from memory.

    FYI, the distance between lever and dash can be adjusted via the adjustment screw no. 68 concealed behind the steering wheel.

    I take it from that information, your knuckles no longer hit the dash?

    I can vouch for that. How many people have driven or ridden in a Fregate around Mount Panorama I wonder?

    Nipping down to Monier Road shopping center to snap up the specials.
    For all the kiddies that are watching, please note 59 Floride's correct use of indicators through the roundabouts.

    Perhaps they have fitted a 6 cylinder motor so they could pull the race car on the trailer.

    Actually back in the early 1960's the President of our car club in Victoria was the Victorian sports car champion. He bought a Fregate to pull his sports car on a single axle trailer. The car had a home made fibre glass body with a Morris engine and suspension. A few years back apparently he still had the sports car but the Fregate was no more.

    It looks like how the British would have styled a Fregate!! It's very well done I reckon with respect to the size and shape of the grill and the very slight forward rake. If you must do that sort of thing of course...

    I wonder WHAT is under than bonnet?
