No Fifties Fords in the Western Pacific?

I noticed that there's no forum here to talk about Fords from the fifties. Are cars like that not popular over there?
Here's a shot of my 57 Fairlane that I use to own, on a trip to Death Valley California in the mid 1980's.

Or do you guys see any Edsels over there. Here's me and my 58 Pacer in 1977 and my old Roundup 2dr. wagon that I also owned years ago.

I remember seeing one Edsel. I didn't see it until a mate said "OI! That car has a c**t!"

Re: No Fifties Fords in the Western Pacific?

There are a few around, you don't see them except for shows mainly but that is true of any fifties car. The rising price of fuel would have cut the daily driver numbers, even with a 302 or 351 they would go through a bit of juice.

One notable one I've seen a couple of times (at shows) is a 1959 Fairlane sedan that had been converted to a camper with pop-top and even airconditioning. It had a 100 gal (imperial!) fuel tank so that they could drive from Melbourne to Queensland at 80mph without refuelling, reason being fuel prices are cheaper in Qld.
