Hi Guys

Hi, My name's Adrian. Currently 9 years into a 2 year restorationRolleyes of a 72 Q code mach 1. Bought the car in England, and was half way through restoring it when I emigrated to Australia.
Car is nealry finished now, but as a left hand drive car in South Australia, it can only be fitted with components originally available as dealer options in '72. As a consequence i've had to remove headers, alloy manifolds, perfomacne filters, coils etc (the list goes on), but I'm actually quite into the idea of getting it back to stock.

Hi Adrian,
welcome to the forum. There are some Australians here, so you'll probably feel at home.
Nice to have you aboard.

Just letting you know another Australian signed up just now. I am from Perth, and have a 71 Gold Grandé Coupe. I think I have the only coupe in Perth but would be keen to meet up with anyone else in town.

Welcome Adrian. Yeah, the South Australian originality policy really sucks, particularly as we next door in Victoria can modify to our hearts content (within roadworthy regulations of course) and you don't hear of any problems with mods in our neck of the woods. I believe you are not even allowed to change the colour away from original in SA Huh
The only thing my car needed to get Vic registered was an $800 engineers report stating the car complied with the Australian Design Rules at the date of manufacture, and seeing as our ADR's pretty much followed the US version the sign off was pretty much a formality, with the two main things I needed to alter were install Aussie made seat belts and headlights that dip to the left instead of the right.

The positive side though is that a stock Mach 1 looks brilliant anyway - chuck a set of 15" magnums on the blighter and as a stock car it will really look the goods!

Welcome Bomarshall.

If you feel like it then head over to the usermap and stick another pin in Australia. We're getting into position to overtake Europe on there, and we've already completely blitzed Iceland and South America! (another step forward in our dastardly provincial long-term plan to outpin the United States itself....)
