Wow....Trevor Page - now you're going back in time :shock:
I saw Trevor at the Clarendon Swap last in around 1998 and he was living up bush somewhere.

Hey Tim
Your too fast for me, go back and take another look, I think I fixed 'em.
I saw Trevor about 2 1/2 years ago and he is doing fine. No Holden's in his life at the moment though.
If anyone was at this 1981 Christmas party, I have about 30 more pics.
Regards
Alex

There was a guy up the road from the school I used to go to in Randwick that had a 55 Chevy with a blown big block.

Word got around back then that it was the engine out of the black 57 from the movie...

Don't know how much truth there was to it though :?

Hi Alex,

Many thanks for posting those pics. Trevor is entered as member #1 on our books and is a also a life member of the Club. Have spoken to him on the phone a few times. It would be great to meet up with him one day...especially this year as the NSW Club is celebrating 30 years...

Any chance of seeing the other pics in your collection?

Thats the real deal right there Ratbox, although the bonnet pins were gone by the time it made it to Sydney. The sticker on the rear bumper and that horrible aerial are giveaways. The car was Vic registered when we got it , the LAW 540 plates were lifted off one of the film crews Commondores for filming purposes- if you look carefully the Rammer gives the Commy a nudge in one scene and it has the same plates on it but they made the L into an E

Hi All
I watch them make some parts of that movie when i was living in kurnell before i moved down to dapto.When they do the 50 buck trick at the servo that is the servo up the road from where i lived at Kurnell and when the 57 did the burnout before the race was at miranda just off president ave.I watched them do that scene and what a hell of a car.

You're right Rat , I reckon they are 2 different cars too. The NSW one appears to be a replica for those reasons you mentioned....
