Ian Prior is busy trawling through some "new" records in Victoria, Australaia and has found several new cars that we have now been able to add into the database bringing the total of cars in the database to 3,420 which is 41.02% of total production ... and there are probably more to come from that as his research progresses! Thank you Ian.
