Random # 59: Fiat 127

Image
What better way to promote your Italian restaurant than an Italian flag on wheels?  This basil, mozzarella and tomato-themed Fiat 127 was photographed in Tewantin, Queensland.  Bon appetito!

Random # 58: XM Falcon Ute

Image
UMPH captured these photos of this immaculate XM Falcon ute in Lakes Entrance, Victoria.  It was perfect in every way, from its glossy paint, straight panels, glittering chrome and lovely interior, through to the tasteful alloy wheels that were the only ostensible signs of modification.

Random # 57: VW-based Beach Buggy

Image
There are two types of vehicle that, above all others, scream carefree beach lifestyle.  One of them is the Mini Moke.  The other is the classic VW-based beach buggy, like the one featured here.


This particular example, seen in Noosaville, Queensland, exhibited all the Baja style that defined the beach buggy look of the 1970s.  A fibreglass tub-body atop a Beetle floor-pan, an air-cooled VW engine and big wheels with generous amounts of rubber evoked the era perfectly, although some of the accessories suggest that it may have been constructed more recently.
