Cup Half Empty

Finally found one. If you’ve still got a Home of The America’s Cup numberplate – that will be the least of your problems. The cup was lost in 1987. The stockmarket crashed later that year, ending 1980’s excess early for Perth. The city now is a very different place to what it was when the numberplate could truly make the claim. The Plate should be proud that it has seen off Laurie Connell at least. Should outlast Bondy if it’s lucky.

    I can’t believe you managed to find one, that’s some impressive stalking Lazy Aussie. I remember that Holden also brought out an America’s Cup kit (consisting of two decals) for some of their 1980’s commodores.
