Ford Falcon 70,000 mile durability run Pt 1.wmv
In 1965 6 stock standard 6 Cyl Falcons were driven flat out for eight days around a twisty 2.2 mile mountain test circuit until they had completed a total of 70,000 miles, aprox. 5000 laps per car. Despite 3 cars rolling and a collision with a 2 ton rock all the cars finished without mechanical breakdowns. This was a make or break stunt by Ford to show how tough the new XP Falcon was.

Northcote & Preston, 1973
Here's a couple of great clips of Preston in 1973! First is from an episode of "Homicide", shot on St. Georges Rd, and featuring the intersection with Normanby Ave, local icon Bedrock Motors, and a nice car chase ending in the little dead-end of Woolton Ave, next to Mayer Park and behind Northcote Golf Course. (Astute locals will note that Bedrock Motors and Woolton Ave are both actually BEFORE the Normanby Ave intersection, not after it as depicted in the episode!). Then, a couple of scenes from an episode of "Ryan", the first featuring the old Preston police station in Roseberry Ave, the rest featuring Campbell's Motors in High St. The Preston Hotel on the corner of High and Spencer Sts can be see, with driving shots of the red Dodge convertible filmed in Spencer St and Wood St.
