I am extremely fortunate to work on the Pacific Highway at Coffs Harbour. Everyday I see a fascinating passing parade of not only regular traffic but a weird and wonderful range of vehicles small ,large, short and long.
From bands of bikies to low-loaders laden with half houses it all flows past. But today a real treat. A 1950s something FJ Holden. AND a matching caravan.
Once I saw a crappy old Holden Kingswood station wagon which had two humans in the front and at least twenty cats roaming throughout the vehicle. Sadly I failed to get a pic.
Vintage Kombis and filthy slogan splashed budget Kombi like rental vans filled with hippies and wanna be hippies also participate in the passing Pacific Parade.
But occasionally I see something in the parade which takes the cake. The well heeled young coastal traveller can not only rent a late model car but one with a message. Although I’ve yet to spot one with “I’M A DICKHEAD DUDE” splashed across the side.
But in amongst the constant flow of colour which passes my studio window daily the two tone green FJ was a real treat.
