So today I’m currently visiting Jason Overland’s Giocattolo event. Of the 15 original cars, one was destroyed at Eastern Creek claiming the life of it’s owner and driver and another is unaccounted for. So it is already a very rare car. Jason has managed to assemble nine of them in one place!
The Giocattolo was the brainchild of Paul Halstead and Barry Lock. It is powered by a 5.0L Holden V8 (an engine designed exclusively for the Australian market) and mated to a ZF transaxle, and mounted behind the seats of what started life as an Alfa Romeo Sprint.
In addition to this, three McLaren cars, Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini and Lotus were all represented.
Keep an eye out for at least some of these cars in future issues.
