Cheers Wakka :D

Thats a great lead so thank you.
The Tenterfield Star may well just have some old photo's of the 60's and 70's.
All in the way it was spelt - which is interesting cos I'll go check the Owners hand book.
Thank you to all the people who have helped on this one.
A trip really looks in order. :D

Happy to assist. My G. Uncle was the "Tenterfield Baker" back in the 30's. No song about him tho'...!

Sent an email to the Tenterfield Star with my inquiry re photo's of Hay's Garage.
Followed it up with a phone call which only got to voice mail.
I'll wait and see for a reply but thanks to everybody for there time and help.

Another option is the local historical society, that is often attached or know by library staff. See if Tenterfield has a public library. The staff may also be able to do the research on your behalf.

Hi Doug :-)
Thanks for the advise and I've emailed the Historical Society in Tenterfield.
So I thought I need to relocate my paper work when I tracked down the first owner in Australia.
I really need to learn how to place photo's on the forum :-)
I have two mint invoices from Hay's Garage. Dated 1972. plus a number of others.
J. G. HAY, M.I.A.M.E. & R. M. RHODES - Prop. Authorised BMC Dealers.
34 ROUSE Street Tenterfield 2372 Phone 341
Also three photos of the car around the same time. Rego plate number BEN 791 ( would really like to have that ) :wink:

Try Myplates .com and see if they have that plate available, I got the original ones for my 68 s . pretty sure it was called a custom plate and I got it in yellow with black letters and it looks just like original ,
Cheers.
John.

You'll need a currently registered car in NSW to obtain any plates though! Otherwise maybe one of these eBay people can make you a copy if they post to NZ?

Hi timmy201

Thanks. I tried my plates.com and yes I couldn't make it happen for what ever reason.
Thanks for the tip and I'll give that a try.
All help is very much appreciated :-)

Pete.

Thanks for checking that out. :(
I will look at some ways of getting one made just for the Garage wall that looks original.
Had a reply from the Tenterfield Historical Group and they have offered to find some photo's and history of Hay's Garage. :)
