    I've just stocked up on LHM from Onshore Oils (wow you can save a motsa buying direct).

    Onshore have in the past attended the Queensland event and I'm trying to get them again this year, for those that don't know they are the Queensland distributors of Total/ Elf/ LHM/ LDS, in the past they have brought product for sale at the event. http://www.onshoreoils.com.au/

    Will keep you posted...

    Cheers

    Each of the Clubs selects and submits a 1st, 2nd and 3rd for each marque. There is a Peoples Choice Award and a number of associated awards. These are announced around 2.30pm.

    What's the history on the blue R10 - the numberplate looks dutch or south african maybe?

    White reflectors on the front too - so sounding more and more South African.

    The owner has had it from new in South Africa and has been in Australia a long time. He just put the original plates on for fun.

    Yes, the South African assembled R10's were factory fitted with the R8 style bumpers. A few of them which came in via Zimbabwe or Mozambique had the curved, more familiar (to Aus. and N.Z.) style bumpers.

    The 'H' van is an absolute cracker, it looks completely original since it was retired from service..

    It has a gantry setup in the back for unloading heavy parts, many old and new stickers inside STP, Castrol etc. and plenty of dents and scratches from years of service.

    Do any QLD froggers have any more pics or information regarding this van?

    I'll check to see if I took any more pics, I suspect yes, if so I can post them here

    The H Van is a little rippa' I spoke briefly with the owner on the day, my memory is vague on details as he had two vehicles on display - if I get this right he had a red/maroon Safari he imported from New Zealand and the H-Van was imported from the UK. I think he is located in Newfarm, but as I say with so many vehicles and people on the day information becomes blurred
