Ahoi from South Africa!

hi all! i am from Cape Town, South Africa, and here is my project:

been struggeling like crazy to find resources and info on Aussie Fords.

i bought a '75 Fairlane 500 ZG in May this year and will spend the next 2 - 3 years redoing the car (not restoring).

here is the link to my blog covering the slow redo process:

i have also posted some pics on flikr:
Flickr: Photos from freshdes

it features the car and some photoshopped images from sample pics i used off the net.
