Technically this is Sonzilla’s first post, sort of. I dropped in to the local supermarket for supplies and had the kids with me. Naturally a visit to the toy aisle happened.

USA vs Australia, a Coupe comparison.

While I had my ‘studio’* still set up and working well I thought I’d take the opportunity to get some more shots. This time with a couple of of Ford coupes. The green ‘72 Grand Torino and the purple ‘73 Falcon GT351. For those that don’t know both casts are from Hot Wheels.

Temperature is 38 C, off shore winds at 12kmh increasing throughout the day.

Due to lack of water the surfing conditions are poor.

G’day, Philliphillip has given me authorship out of the blue. So I made a mini documentary to mark the occasion. I’ll do a proper intro soon but I must sleep, it’s been a busy night.
