First up is this stunning 1972 Chrysler Charger VH R/T. Built by Valiant in Australia these cars were propelled by a beautiful 265CI Hemi In-line 6 cylinder mated to a 3-speed Manual transmission. VERY fast car in their time.
And a very pretty 1970 Rambler Javelin is up next. Powered by a 6.4L V8 producing 315hp. Built in the U.S. and known as an AMC Javelin there, and also in Mexico, this is an Australian built car.
Here's one for the JDM fans - a beautiful 1982 Honda NSX. I have always liked these. They are bringing pretty silly money at the moment.
Japan again! This 2017 Nissan GTR has the factory Nismo go-fast stuff on it. Not the prettiest car, I think. But stupidly fast.
STILL in Japan, a MUCH prettier old-school 1975 Datsun 260Z. That's a lovely paint job, I didn't think that was a factory colour, but evidently it is. 165hp and a top speed of 205km/h.
And another Nissan, 1990 300ZX 2+2 Z32. I think this is the only really nice looking Datsun/Nissan they ever made. Japan had a twin turbo version of these, which we never got (officially) in Australia. There are lots of imported ones around though.
There are several Ford Mercury Cougars here today. I rather like this 1968 XR7!
Or do I prefer this 1969 Mercury Cougar Convertible? I can't decide! Wrap both up for me then!
Did somebody say they saw a Corvette before? Hmmm.. This one is a 1969 C3 Stingray.. but it's Red? I'm sure it wasn't a Red one I saw..
Ah! HERE it is! And what a beauty! 1966 was certainly the year of the pretty Corvette :) I LOVE those side-pipes and heat shields, that looks amazing! This one has the 390hp 427CI V8 and a 4-speed manual. This model made the Corvette popular!
Another Chev, and WHAT a car! This 1957 Bel Air Convertible looks absolutely stunning! And those FINS!! Love the FINS! I can so imagine cruising around in this!
You don't like the Chev in Black, you say! Here's one in Red then - another 1957! (I prefer the Red - Red always goes faster!)
I *REALLY* love old Packards, but if I really had to, I think I could make do with this 1955 400. Sadly, this was the last model Packard ever made :( 260hp from the 5.8Litre V8. What a ride!
And I loved this one too! I even got to sit in it! Another Packard, from 1951. This is a model 250. No Fins! But still just gorgeous, and it is absolutely pristine, like a new car. I could be very happy with this, too!
Let's take another breather, it's hard work looking at all these pictures, isn't it? Join us again soon for another episode of the Gosford Classic Cars tour!
