I'm sure the GT spares that was there could easily fill a few containers. I believe all the cars & spares went to one buyer. I took pics but I have to clear with Warren before I post them up. All the GT cars were in running order except his beige personal one. If these are the cars then its legit.

On planet earth all assets are handled according to economics.

For instance--since the RSA Rand became weak against the Australian Dollar

the citizens of Australia are in a good spot to import classic cars they adore from South Africa

by the hundreds. And so for British Pound etc etc.


I cannot blame any South African selling his/her car for good money to some-one in Aussie,

Brittain etc. The reason is that economics is the overriding factor.Nobody can escape that.


I do not mind to be banned from this Forum because I have said something that is,according to me

the truth and nothing else than the truth.


The bottom line is this: It is ,from a South African point of view utterly irrrepairable tragic

that the majority of our Fairmont GT's are not any more on our soil, but instead somewhere

in Australia and New Zeeland. Our heritage was given away for a few gold coins. And the reason---

for reasons not applicable here-- the freefall of our Rand.


The only positive flowing from the weak Rand is that we are able to build and export, as a business,

many new vehicles to many countries overseas.Somewhere under the bonnet of those

cars are a little tag " Build in the Republic of South Africa"

Hi Rick thanks for the reply the puzzle is becoming more clear thanks so much for answering this post.
Yes 20-30 cars is a lot of cars someone must know of them OR are they all ready in Australia. I haven't heard of any new ones for sale so I do question them bein in Australia.
To purchase that many cars would be very expensive.
