That whole story is shakey as hell. Miller didn't want to use the Javelin cause he wanted exclusively Australian cars? So he sold it?

That's picky for someone who used barely working Falcons, destined to be wasted hot rod and his own bongo van because of a shoe string budget. Plus the whole story of "this one guy finding the paint scheme when sanding" is as valid as UFO stories. As for the pics: none that prove it. This whole Javelin rumor has been circulating for so long and they can't seem to let it go.
