Yesterday marked two long years since May 29 2016 when I discovered a devastating theft of irreplaceable 1953 Eldorado parts from cars #412 and #433 from my home workshop. The thief was quickly determined on the first day. Police were called and a report made. QP1600958952.
On May 30 2016 I went to a Brisbane restoration shop premises and saw some of my stolen property  on the shop floor before being ushered from the property with an intervention order granted that morning by a Victorian Court. Police were advised and gave permission to the thief for the stolen property to be removed from the restoration shop to the thief’s home in Victoria. The Court intervention order precludes me uttering the thief’s name.
    A lawyer mate drafted a dozen or so letters of demand to the thief’s lawyer and they resulted in the return of some of the parts. A large quantity of my property remains in the thief’s possession.
     I demand that Queensland Police charge the thief with theft. It is irrefutable.
     It should not take two years to get no Police enforcement of a very simple but devastating (for me) theft.
      The Court and legal manipulation should be seen as unacceptable.

Typical illogical Government overreaction. Our suburbs are full of James Hardies finest. Wittenoon mine is just a southwesterly breeze from Perth.
In fact the trade winds probably blow asbestos over from non compliant countries. But good on them for controlling and dominating people’s lives over and above the miriad other illogical government mandates.

I need to have my bonnet hinges repaired on my 76 Deville. The pivot pins/rivets are worn out .

I can send them to the US but I'm hoping somebody here might know a good repairer in Australia.

Hi there,

I wanted to wake up this topic as my son needs some parts for his '70 Deville. Does anyone still know about the car that's sitting in the paddock in Victoria? A complete parts car would be awesome.
