Exactly. Not his best effort. Real modern though.

'Strewth cobber!
That's a strine Milano GT
Mid 60s glass fibre with Holden engine, probably straight 6
Why the Aussies had to pinch an Italian name when they have plenty of exotic place names of their own.
Wonga Wonga GT sounds fine to me.

J.W.F. Glass-Fibre Industries Milano GT

Yes it has a straight 6 Holden Grey motor. That particular car has been in Europe for some time now. https://www.zwischengas.com/de/FT/fahrz ... wagen.html

Wonga Wonga may not be such a great name for a GT. It would mean a place of many pigeons!

Hi Felix, being a bit pedantic in a thread called "name that car" the 541 looks more like a 541R to me!!

You are 100% correct, my sincerest apologies! And also please excuse that I could not contain my excitement when seeing the familiar location and the 541...R and went off topic! :D

To my defense or to make matters worse, depending on how you look at it, my 541 is not an R as it appears to be, but a 541 Deluxe...
