A nice R8 spotted online in 2019 (advertised as a Gordini, but we have since been told it's not a genuine Gordini). Looks to be modified slightly for racing, but overall in excellent condition. This is the R1135 model, with the quad lamps at the front.
This is the first on the register here. If you have one, please sign-up and add yours.
This example was advertised in April 2019, looks to have a bit of rust, but hopefully can be saved by an enthusiast. Located in Melbourne, this one is finished in Monza red, and looks to be mostly complete.

The owner noted this one has a fully reconditioned Cylinder Head, New timing chain and tensioner, along with most mechanical parts replaced..

Silver Grey ESP (originally would have been over Charcoal) - in excellent condition, only a few small bits need attention in this example. This one is owned by a friend, and we had the opportunity to do a video / take a few snaps if the cars whilst we were at his place. This ESP has our favourite trim, the Sierra Tan. Needs to get the charcoal lower body panels to really look the part though.

This car belongs to a friend of ours, located in Western Sydney, and we had the opportunity to take a few snaps whilst looking at a few of his other cars. This example is a very rare factory manual 302 V8 XE ESP - one of the most desirable cars in the ESP series. The Gunmetal trim needs a bit of attention on the driver's seat, but overall it's fairly good. The body has bits of rust in the usual spots, and a few bits have been cut out. Certainly worth repairing for this sort of car. Unfortunately, neither cars are for sale sorry! WIll update the images as the restoration progresses.
1998 NL Fairlane by Tickford. Only 106 of these special edition sports Fairlane’s were built. This particular Fairlane by Tickford is build #28, and is in stunning condition inside and out.
Loaded with extras including full leather interior, 17” alloy wheels, Momo steering wheel and mesh grill, the Fairlane by Tickford is now a collectors item for Ford enthusiasts. Check out the others on the link to the register below.
Spotted this one in early 2019. In excellent original condition, with only 145,000 on the clock at the time. No mods other than head unit and Nardi steering wheel. Still has factory exhaust and intake! First one I have ever seen.
The Vr4 Evo 0 has the following features:
Looks original on the outside, but this Galant VR-4 has had a lot of mechanical work.. The car was imported to NZ about 10,000km ago.
The photos are just a selection of the completely documented build of the vehicle and they speak volumes about the quality of the parts selection and the level of the work performed.
Dyne Tuned to 230kw (310hp) and 405nm (300ft/lb). Add a larger intercooler and a set of 272 cams and this build will deliver well into the 300kw range.

Datsun Stanza SSS. Silver on black - very rare car with most of these treated terribly and sent to the wreckers. One of the last Datsun SSS vehicles before the name change to Nissan. Got a few others on the register here. This one was located in VIC in 2019. Very original, just needs a clean up.
This “Sovereign metallic” Fairmont Ghia would make an ideal and easy project for the XE enthusiast – notably having very little rust in the body. Although the vehicle’s interior has been disassembled, the full original (and immaculate) trim is included with the sale, as are the original snowflake wheels. The seller notes the car runs well, with no obvious mechanical issues.
The seller has owned this vehicle for just under a year, and due to having several new projects, needs it gone. The car has travelled only 217,000km from new on its original engine, and its overall condition suggests it was not a coastal car. Not only is this evidenced by the state of the body, but the cloth Chamois interior (which is currently in dry storage) is in amazing condition. The roof lining in the car is also fully intact and although slightly marked would clean up very well, as would the carpets which display no signs of serious wear.
This particular car is a September 1983 build, and has to be one of the best unrestored bodies on the market when it comes to rust. It’s certainly one of the most solid unrestored XEs we’ve come across in recent times, and even the majority of the paintwork is in great condition. The main exception to this is the roof, which has seen the clear coat deteriorate, and would likely need a re-spray.
When we inspected the car, there were only small areas of spot rust or surface rust, and a couple of rust holes on the bonnet. There is also an area we spotted at base of the rear driver’s side quarter panel which may need some attention before it spreads. Those areas have been detailed as best possible in the photographs, and are relatively minor. There are also a couple of small dents in the body, the driver’s guard being one location. The rear valance panel has been bent out of shape and would likely need replacing.
This would make an easy restoration project with only minor body repairs required, a bit of paint and reassembly with the existing trim which is already in brilliant condition.
At $8,500, the seller notes the price is negotiable. For more information or to arrange an inspection, please sign-in and click the “contact seller” button at the top of this page.
