Green Energy

After 14 months at the body shop, my GT6 is almost ready to collect. It was delivered in September last year, stripped of paint and showing nearly forty years of accumulated dents and battle scars. Joe's welded up a hole inflicted by a forklift, fitted a new section of bulkhead, a dashboard frame and floor pan, and hammered and shrunk dents from every panel (including the roof!). 

Painting the body, though, was delayed by insurance work and a shortage of labour. I haven't been in Mackay in a couple of months, but asked my brother to stop in on his way to the mines. And sitting in the tropical sun, waiting for its doors, was the Mallard Missile.

Word is, it'll be home for Christmas...
