Slim & Ole Purple

Topic:

Not really OH or Hump day but worth sharing. Slim Dusty had his old Fairlane that travelled with him for years all around the traps. "Old Purple" was its nickname.
Most of us can relate to his sentiments.

"dark side" more than once over the years...

I was looking at an XY ute in the early 1990's. It had the ZD fairlane front on it, 351. You used to see a few around like this back then. Much the same as The Stato fronts on HQ-WB but far less popular.

I haven't been yet. It would be good to go I should make the effort with my oldies who only live down the road. I used to listen to a bit of Slim growing up and his was the first cassette tape I ever bought.
