Still has the twin smoke stacks at the power room and looks like the vw logo sign frame on the press room roof is still there, either painted over or covered up
Anybody near by to Clayton got a drone with a camera and can have a look and take a video for us ??

I'd like to know what ever happened to the revolving vw logo sign our front near the smoke stacks ..that would have been good for my front yard :D

I was among the group that Ted Stone organised for NSW Datsun/Nissan dealership service managers of the factory, assembly line and casting plant , it was a great insight to watch the Volvos being assembled among the Nissans. Ted was a great organiser and his motivational skills were second to none.
