Hi Rob,

Well done. The one where the sun is in the wrong direction could pass for a very good painting!

Hi Rob,

It is a wonder you were able to get close enough or aren't they that timid?

Hi,
I would like to get a close up of mine. I would not need a long lens as I have two that eat out of my hand and a third one that I have to toss the meat into the air and it catches it on the wing. They are fast at doing that and watch me to be ready when I throw their food. I go through a kilogram of cheap mince per week between them, four kookaburras and half a dozen magpies.
The kookaburras and the magpies have a dis agreement and the kookaburras always win!
Thanks for the photographs.

Regards,
Gordon.

Hi,

For what it is worth my Super A is still going now the same as when I walked out of the store in 1985! I have added its dedicated winder, which can go through the film in constant mode incidentally! I have also attached a Data back as well. I think that the Super A and Super Program are the same cameras, just different markets.
The Super A does have electronics and with an A series lens the aperture can be set from within the camera.

Hi,

I have four of their relatives turn up for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Kookaburras to be exact, along with butcher birds and magpies! The kookaburras and magpies have a bit of a domestic until the kookaburras open their beak at the magpies while the butcher birds catch the meat in the air!
The magpies are renown for being aggressive when they have young, but by feeding them they are not a problem for me.

Regards,
Gordon.

Hi,

Talking of hot rod Lincolns in 1974 Holden here in Australia built a batch of 260 Holden Toranas to be eligible for our annual 1000 kilometre race at Bathurst. A friend of mine had one and out ran the police one night. The local police sergeant heard about it and told him that the police force had nothing that would catch them. To give you an example of how quick they were he did 83 miles one day in 36 minutes and these were stock standard vehicles!

Gordon.

Correct way to store Spotmatic Lenses with hoods in their cases
Posted By gordon_l34

Hi,

I store mine with the front facing down, and cap on whether they have a case or not. If they are too long to stand upright in my home made dehumidifier they are then laid on their side.
All of my collection is stored in converted gless two door drinks fridges with dehumidifying units mounted in the back wall to maintain a relative humidity of around fifty percent.

Regards,
Gordon.

Hi
What I have done is used a Slope brand 1000 liter cafe type drinks fridge.
I removed the refrigerator unit which is totally self contained on top of this storage cabinet. You have two openings to then seal off and one opening at the bottom internally to seal off.
I then mounted two dehumidifiers that are rated for over 800 liters in the interior rear wall. These are the same design as the ones that are fitted to the Wonderful brand of dehumidifiers. A hygrometer is required to sit on one of the shelves to get the required humidity as the dehumidifiers are adjustable.
Any further information just message me as as I have done three for myself for my collection.
Regards,
Gordon.

Personalized license plates..your favorites

Hi,
The motor was designed by Repco, a motor repairing company here in Australia at the time. It looked the same as the standard 308 cubic inch Holden motor at the time but was actually based on the motor that took Jack Brabham to his world championships. The motor was strong but because the driveline was designed for 240 horsepower and the motor was putting out somewhere around 300 horsepower it was pretty fragile in that area. I used to get about 25,000 miles out of the gearbox so you can imagine the problems on the race track.

To solve the gearbox, brakes and differential problems in 1977 an uprated version was released with a Borg Warner T10 gearbox option, a Salisbury differential and disc brakes on the rear. Peter Brock in 1979 won the 1000km Bathurst Classic Race by six laps and set the fastest lap of the race on the last lap! The road going version of this car did not have the L34 race engine as it would not pass the anti - pollution laws that were brought in in 1976. They were allowed to use this engine on the race track.

Regards,
Gordon.

Hi,

I had the following on a Holden Tirana here in Queensland, Australia. The vehicle was a performance version of which only 260 were built to make it eligible for our annual Bathurst race in 1974. It was an L34 variant with a special motor and upgraded brakes. I used a combination of my initials GML plus it was a GM product to give GML 34. It was a potent car for it's day and has become a collectors vehicle here in Australia. I don't have it anymore because if I did I would not have a license to drive as I used to use its performance to its maximum. I still have the number plates as memories.

Regards,
Gordon.
