Firstly, I really enjoyed the discussion encouraging membership. I have just requested a membership form and hope at the age of 35 I may be able to contribute something to the club in years to come.
The reason for this message is to try and track down a 1927 20 HP. The car appears on page 163 of "The Sunburned Country." The chassis number is GOK-74 and the engine number is G-1619. The last known regsitration was in Victria on RR-737.
This was my father's first car which he purchased in 1957. I would very much like to see if it is possible to show my father the car again. Does anyone know it's whereabouts and if so, whether the owner would be receptive to a visit from a prior owner?
Any information most appreciated,

The 1999 RROC register lists the owners of GOK74 as [names removed by moderator] in Victoria. It is listed as a 1926 20HP with a Roger Fry Skiff body. E-Mail me if you need contact numbers etc as I don't wish to post them publically.

I acquired 20hp GOK 74 from your father Dr Frank Jones in 1964, through his father, as Frank was undertaking post graduate studies in the U.K.
You are more than welcome to have a look and a run in the car.
