I'm in western Australia near Fremantle, Perth is the capital and the most remote city in the world, also I do have the manual but it doesn't show all the parts,maybe I need parts book,or a good forum 👍👍👍👍I will definitely post pictures of parts I have. Thanks Mike

I'm presently in Perth working away. There is a great network of enthusiasts here. Join the Perth chapter of the club. There are a few cool 58s here including Sinatra's Eldorado Brougham which is currently 30 feet away from me. Jeff and Chris and Tony are 58 guys.

Gday Bob,
I've got divorce lawyers to pay so I just keep my head down and keep a half smile and lose myself in work.
Warren sold your Eldo to Ray. But he bought a white car out of Canada. Hopefully I may get some work out of it next year. . . . "One day at a time sweet Jesus."
Ross might "force me" to go to the National if I'm lucky.

I will join the WA chapter, and get to know some of the guy's.  Even just to get some photos of the cars,ya never know they may have some parts for us. I've never been to SA maybe a great excuse to go thanks Bob.

Relax Bob.   Ray is a Perth guy. He's a good guy and will pamper it. He's a Caddy guy.  It will get the very best of everything.

Hi Q,
 I wasn't worried. I had not heard of or met Ray from Perth. I'm just still in shock that Warren sold the car!!
