Waiari – Gets A Top Chop

I first featured the 1962 Own Woolley sedan launch, Waiari back in June 2014 & added updated photos in May 2017. While she looked very smart, she had a wee addition on top that in the eyes of some, was a little like ‘a pimple on a pumpkin’.

I’m pleased to be able to say that her owner, Tobias Forsyth has done the deed & given her a haircut J Photo below of the b4 & after. I know which I prefer.

You can read more about her in the comments section of the WW link below.

  2. I think it had nothing to do with aesthetics…..he just wanted a place to store the Stand Up paddle boards out of sight and mind!


  3. Nothing wrong with bare feet and belt sanding, gives you an incentive to be more careful…. lucky man obviously has good inverting or a generator also…..


  4. Hi looks much better, don`t know why some people need to buy a particular design and try n turn it into something it was never meant to be. Cheers.


  5. Jim Dickson, her original owner, & really good friend of my family, will be looking down from up there & smiling,, She look absolutely original, to my recall, (I knew her from new), & ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!! — WELL DONE TOBIAS!! — ken r
