    For 50K the guy could at least make an effort with the pics. Real pity it was "restored" :(

    If its rego'd in France you could get it rego in Australia pretty easily.

    I like the the thought process "Man it must be worth $100000"
    It won't start "Small issues, easily fixed $99800"

    A free PDF-ebook... (not sure where else to put this)... A few weeks back while doing a loop of The Kimberley I tore the side out of a tyre and got stranded on the Duncan Rd, I ended up being rescued by the people that work/manage Mistake Creek Station, Nelson Springs.... A guy there put me onto this book..

    "Death in the Sand" (the unsolved disappearance of James Annetts and Simon Amos)
    https://deathinthesand.weebly.com/
    "During the hot Kimberley summer of 1986 two teenage boys set out for the seismic maze of the Great Sandy Desert. Months later their dismembered bodies were found. Wild dogs had chewed the flesh from their bones; desert camels had sucked out the marrow. ... Twenty-three years later Norm Barber returned to the Kimberley to record the story not previously told."

    Direct PDF link: (Right click and hit "save as", or open and save)
    http://www.territorystories.nt.gov.au/bitstream/10070/265096/1/Death in the sand the unsolved disappearance of James Annetts and Simon Amos.pdf

    It's a true story about two 16yo city kids that head to the Kimberley in 1986 to work on cattle stations, it turns out the station manager is a tyrant and the kids vanish under dodgy circumstances, their bodies are found a few months later.... The police totally mishandle the search and investigation, it all sounds very corrupt...

    I'm not a reader at all but this story sucked me in... very dodgy ... A big part of what hooked me was that I had just been through the area where the event takes place, northern Tanami, Halls Creek, Duncan Rd... The book mentions most the stations and towns around that area and it's interesting to read about how life was in that area around that time.... The book skips around a bit and it's a bit hard to follow at times, but if you need something to read while laying in your tent at night it's worth a look....

    I remember that well
    Worked up in the Territory early 80's, place I was working on was sold to Sherwin
    Soon as I knew Sherwin was the buyer I was gone, as with everyone I worked with there.
