Ang's petrol-head passion doesn't stop with classic cars - he's always on the lookout for quirky, hard-to-find accessories

1 - HSV Compendium/ Book Holder

Remember when people took pride in the presentation of their Melways or Sydway maps? They were an important and permanent item in the cabin until the GPS became the norm. If you're an HSV enthusiast this genuine accessory is a must have even as a receipt wallet, and the best part is it won't break the bank and the seller has six left in stock.

COST $35 delivered


2 - TRAFFIC GUIDE safety signal

We all dislike traffic lights but can you imagine following a vehicle with its own set of traffic lights mounted in the rear glass, indicating the drivers movements?

This unit actually wires to the brake stop switch and uses its own pedal to track your foot movements. It could even be mounted externally for greater safety! COST $345 plus shipping & GST


3 - 1959 Ford Galaxie/fairlane Fender skirts

If you own an imported classic sourcing parts from overseas has become a costly exercise due to the plunging Aussie dollar. Trawling local websites I was excited to discover this NOS pair of '59 wheel spats in their original red oxide primer. Don't disregard your local marketplaces for rare parts, these would no doubt even suit the Aussie Tank Fairlane, happy hunting!

COST $350 plus shipping
