    I've only ever seen one Roger, that was in Melbourne some years ago.
    While we are talking Japanese, how about a Toyota 2000GT crushed by a tree.

    Missed the Toyota 2000GT but have the Bond Aston Martin DB4 - complete with one hub spike sticking out !!. Was part of the James Bond series of models by a magazine Publishers " Hatchette " or similar.

    and as Abandoned Neglected but not forgotten - my back yard in Mt Albert in 1979/80 -

    The Sprite got restored by Ross Hollings - the white bonnet went back to its owner and the " carless day " car the A30 went to the wreckers, after the Sprite Carbs were removed.

    My friend Michael raced one of those about ten years ago...

    He reckoned it was a good thing.

    Apparently part of the Walter Medlin collection https://www.orlandosentinel.com/news...825-story.html

    It must be a car in F2 form, possibly after the Temporada...

    The roll bar shape and back of the cockpit sides are different to the Tasman cars.

    Actually, it's been pointed out to me that we've had this discussion before on this forum...

    The identity of the car was established in a thread called Missing Tasman Series Ferrari some seven years ago.
