I had an email from Lexdownunder, from Perth, Western Australia this morning. He was at an All Fords charity event and this is what he had to say.

"Hi Ray
We had the All Ford Day last Sunday where we get to show off our cars for charity. Over 550 Fords on display at a football oval just out of Perth.
Only have the one photo of my "Black Beauty" which I've sent. She really was a "Star" & had heaps of lookers & compliments. Nothing like a squarebird to attract attention & photographers. I've pretty much completed all the jobs I wanted to do. She has all new upholstery & seat foams. electric wiper conversion, working electric clock & had lots of hand rubbing the paintwork. All the marks she got during transport to Aussie are gone. She looks amazing!!!!! Mechanically, all finished. New suspension rubbers & reset springs. New exhaust (with a pretty loud rumble....luv it!!) replaced a few engine & gearbox seals, balanced tail shaft & new uni joints & just general maintenance & refurbishing. She sooooo much luvs a cruise.

Cheers Ray

PS The All Ford Day raised more than $50,000 for kids charities. This year we are donating half each to SIDS & Heart Kids. Makes you feel good inside!!!!!"

Here is the picture that he sent of his Raven Black '59 Squarebird. He really has her looking great!
