This car has been advertised in late 2018 / early 2019 in Vic, from 2 different sellers. Thec car is apparently originally a Camino Gold GT. Several people who inspected this car noted that it had a 1380cc engine on the original gearbox, but had the original engine which is sold separately with the car. The front seats had also supposedly been re-trimmed, but there is no images of those.
This classic 1972 Hydroplane is of the Wickens design from the USA, and was built in Australia by the famous Sydney race boat builder, Bert Everingham.
The boat is believed to have been originally fitted with a Jaguar V12, and competed in the Hawkesbury River Bridge to Bridge race where it went by the name “Super Cat”. The boat was retired some decades ago after putting a conrod through its block during a race, and was then kept out at Oberon NSW, before finding its way to the former owner in Western Australia, who began dismantling it for restoration.
The current owner purchased the boat in an incomplete state approximately 6 years ago, and had the boat (with its original trailer) transported back to Sydney. The boat and its trailer underwent a full restoration with a professional hydroplane specialist boat builder in Wisemans Ferry, NSW.
The boat is now fitted with a fully rebuilt Chev 440ci V8, and has been tastefully restored with custom finishes and body work based on Hydroplane designs of the 1970s. The boat is in immaculate condition and has hardly seen use since its restoration, and has been kept undercover in storage.
This would suit a serious race boat enthusiast looking for something that can be used for weekend runs or possibly competition (subject to class regulations). The trailer has been refurbished and has hydraulic tilt lift, registered until 27 October 2019. The boat itself is not currently registered.

Spotted for sale in April 2019, this is number 75 of 500 Ralliart Magna vehicles sold in the Australian market.

If you've got one, sign up and add yours to the register so we can preserve the records of these rare Magnas. Check out the others on the register below.
Spotted on trademe.co.nz in April 2019. This unaltered original example of the Galant coupe has a little bit of rust in the body and panels, but it's fairly limited and would make an easy project. Great looking cars and a cheaper way to get close to a GTO coupe. If you've got one of these classic Mitso's, sign up and add yours to the register. Check out the others on the register below.
This original early example of the AE86 is located in Romania, and retains its original 4A-GE twin cam engine, excellent cloth trim and factory red paint. The seller has informed us that the car has some rust in the usual places, but runs, drives and brakes well. The car requires little work to get in full roadworthy condition, and would make an excellent club car or daily driver.
These cars have a big European following, and were very successful in the European Touring Car Championship between 1984 and 1988. Most notably, the AE86 won the European Touring Car Manufacturers Championship in 1986, surpassing some heavy competition including the BMW M6. The AE86 also made its name as a successful rear drive club racing car, and was a pioneer vehicle in the early days of drifting. Those that know the cars well would also recall its regular appearance in the "Initial D" Japanese street racing manga series.
A great modern classic at a very reasonable price, with lots of potential. For more information or to inspect the car, please contact Tirnovean by logging in and clicking the contact seller button above.
The 5th on our small register of XR8 Sprints. This one looks to have been kept in very original condition, with reasonably low mileage for its age (215,000km). Unfortunately, however, the car no longer has its original engine.
AT the time we spotted this car online (Ebay AU), the seller made the following points:
-Feb 1994 Cobalt Auto A/C. No other options.
Spotted on Ebay in April 2019, this EA claims to be an SVO enhanced vehicle, and one of the 600 odd cars enhanced by SVO in 1989 when SVO was trying to establish a contract with Ford, as Tickford successfully did. This one has what looks to be a kit similar to the EB GT fitted, and does not have the grey lower panneling as normally applied to the SVOs - likely modified at some point in its life.
A nice R8 spotted online in 2019 (advertised as a Gordini, but we have since been told it's not a genuine Gordini). Looks to be modified slightly for racing, but overall in excellent condition. This is the R1135 model, with the quad lamps at the front.
This is the first on the register here. If you have one, please sign-up and add yours.
This example was advertised in April 2019, looks to have a bit of rust, but hopefully can be saved by an enthusiast. Located in Melbourne, this one is finished in Monza red, and looks to be mostly complete.
