I know the guy that owns the Running on Red Empty EK/FB he is in Penrith, his names Val he's a Cool Guy he used to own a yellow 57 Chev - He also has the Black 57 from Running on Empty as well,

There is a company called Movie Cars Australia where you can sometimes pick up these cars James

From what I've read, the EK he owns is a replica of the Running on Empty EK, not the real thing.

From another forum....

Hi everyone, just thought I would let you all know that I own the '57 2 door out of Running On Empty, the Rammer and a copy of the EK. The Chev was blown in the movie as per cut out of the bonnet but was not sold after the movie with engine(ended up in a green '55 Chev 4 door with huge rubber), I did have it blown for a while but had too much trouble with the engine. It is under a major rebuild as I speak but can only do as much as my finances allow me. The Rammer is a basket case but can be repaired but someone has ended up with the front sheet metal, has had an interior fire at some stage(needs lots of TLC). The EK is a clone as I talked to the guy who bought it after the movie at an FB-EK club meeting who told me he threw it away as it was too rusty and was going to redo a copy but with a V8 but it never got done. Sorry about the letter everyone but I had to say my peace, thanks Val

Gazard Boyz Ek lives in orange now. In pretty good nik concidering it has a new body. Everything from the original rusted out body is back in it. "Everything". The new owner that owns it Pete is taking it to the reunion this year. He's a good bloke and has brought many a sad holden back from the dead.

Lots of old hotties live in this neck of the woods.

some of the stuff out of the interior was stolen when I had it , be interesting to see some recent photos of it to see how close to the original he has made it .

yeah i know Mick , have spoken to Val but old mate above was saying the new owner has done a heap of work on it to make it closer to the original - as you know it is reasonably close but still has away to go to a true clone
