1960 Falcon Deluxe XK - Mr Al Sweeney


The 2011 flood. I checked out the old shed at Hattonvale all good only clean fresh water 6 inches, got a couple of this wet. The water ate through country side like a twister with no rhyme or reason. This way, that way,this house, those trees and that town. I had a bit of look around Laidly ,it has been cleaned up but the horror 20 min up the road is shocking. I spent the day seeing and listening to trauma and loss of friend’s kids. I meet an amazing old bloke cleaning the alley way at the bakery with stories of the old Laidly and the way it was as a child. I stopped in a friends at Goodna and help clean his shed it was another shocker but no one was killed a blessing. Keep safe.

This is one of those projects that followed me home 9 years ago and for some reason it is still there. I found her in a very sorry state dumped outside my local wreckers and I felt sorry for her and brought her home. I hide it the corner of my shed till I had time. In the mean time I have moved four times and she is still with me. Since it her 50th birthday this year we thought we would give her a fresh coat of paint and some seats and crank up the old girl.

I will update the progress via the web site, please email me if you have any hints or pearls of wisdom that can help us on the way.

Kind regards,

Al Sweeney
