Late 1980’s. Grommet carnage in the Wanda Carpark. Jac Tehan & Brad W find a use for a battered board in this Tim Vanderlaan Photo. Footnote: The board belonged to Bruce Toby. It flew off the roof of his car heading south near Engadine in a strong westerly. Murphy’s law and the board flies over the fence onto the train tracks and into the path of a northbound coal train.
