I take it these are all pictures from past banger racing events? So most of these vehicles have long been crushed!

I salvaged all I could from the General Lee painted car. Not much left I have to say.
I am coming to believe a 56mph speed record is harder to achieve than a 400mph one!

That is not as bad as I expected, the list of Aussie cars is not huge and the pics cover a big time span.
I remember a green VH estate that I tried to buy, but he wouldn't sell then bangered it, that could be the one here, 2005 would be about right.

probably mayoral or ex funeral directors car

a few UK companies did specialise in sticking an extra doors worth into the middle of anything your turned up with

you occasionally see the odd Granada or ambassador with what looks like an aluminium and glass shed bolted on for the coffin...to get a matching set you need a long one for friends and family to follow behind
