Shed-built dream Falcon, a family Torana with a hidden story + more!

Tributes, replicas, mock-ups… whatever you like to call them, have long been a divisive subject within classic car circles – but there’s no escaping that some of our most fantasized dream cars are long beyond reach.

For Queenslander Steve, who passed on a genuine Phase III for $10,000 back when he was a young’n and watched on as prices skyrocketed into telephone number territory – the only way to own his dream car was to build it himself: at home, in the shed.


It mightn’t be for everyone, but who can blame him when it comes up this good?


Our next features takes a close look at a family gem; an LX Torana which was purchased by the family’s eldest son Peter as his first car. Peter sadly passed away suddenly in the early 80s, but the family never let it go. Years later, they took it in for a freshen up – and got more than they bargained for!


Further back, we have another tribute – but not the Aussie hero car you might think. This one comes courtesy of retired NSW policeman Terry, who pieced together his Landcruiser into an exacting replica of the Police Rescue Truck he used to drive about in for work.


We also track the market movements in recent years for the Aussie Charger, in our latest segment of Market Watch.


This month’s Reader Resto comes thanks to Ron and his immaculate BMW E28 535i – fastidiously restored down to the genuine BMW wheel weights!
