Another Bloke from Australia

Recommended Posts

Hello all. I am Dave or Dufasdave and live, as per the topic title, in Australia. I live in a place called Rockhampton which is on the central Queensland coast (google map it ). Prior to this I was in Toowoomba which is about 1 1/2 hours inland of Brisbane (once again google map it). My occupation is a firefighter with Queensland Fire and Rescue Service, prior to that I worked on cars in several exhaust shops for 19 years.

I have been car models on and off since I was about 14 years old. No real main themes just any cars/trucks/pickups that appeal to me. I have also done a few motorbikes. I will get some photos on this site when I can. Currently working on a 2009 Dodge Challenger and a 1966 Chevelle wagon. Getting together a few more for a local competition in Mackay (local!!! 3 hours away, google map it). Anyway, looks like a great site so I'll get some pics up when I can.

Cheers.

Welcome Dave, This place is massive, and lots of great stuff too.

I reckon if we get the word out to more of us Aussies, we can over run this site. Haha

Welcome Dave.

I've a question for you folks down under. How are the clutch, brake, gas pedals set up your vehicles down there? We have them set up left to right.

Thanks Chris. I was watching Mad Max 2 on TV last night and it got me wondering.
