The 1969 Ford Torino Talladega Fastback under auction is one of only two available in Australia. Both vehicles will be auctioned completely unreserved. The 1953 Holden FJ Dual Cab Ute is a burgundy metallic pearl vehicle with a white leather interior. Its restoration took 6 years to complete at a cost of approximately $500, 000.

It won 29 Grand National races during the 1969 and 1970 NASCAR season. The vehicles are a testament to the love of their current owners and an appreciation for the enduring beauty and history of classic cars.

International Journal of Speech-Language Pathology | Year: 2011
This paper explores the insights that classification theory can provide about the application of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) to communication. It first considers the relationship between conceptual models and classification systems, highlighting that classification systems in speech-language pathology (SLP) have not historically been based on conceptual models of human communication. It then overviews the key concepts and criteria of classification theory. Applying classification theory to the ICF and communication raises a number of issues, some previously highlighted through clinical application. Six focus questions from classification theory are used to explore these issues, and to propose the creation of an ICF-related conceptual model of communicating for the field of communication disability, which would address some of the issues raised. Developing a conceptual model of communication for SLP purposes closely articulated with the ICF would foster productive intra-professional discourse, while at the same time allow the profession to continue to use the ICF for purposes in inter-disciplinary discourse. The paper concludes by suggesting the insights of classification theory can assist professionals to apply the ICF to communication with the necessary rigour, and to work further in developing a conceptual model of human communication. © 2011 The Speech Pathology Association of Australia Limited.

Bridge asset managers have been using performance indicators for many years to report stock and condition. It is recognized the fiscal demands necessary to address stock in poor condition and deficient bridges are significant and considered unsustainable. Recent audits of funding programs have reported there is a lack of transparency and accountability between funding and bridge improvement performance. Bridge managers must therefore: •Implement more robust and focused risk management regimes for prioritizing bridge projects • Improve justification and reporting for projects requiring funding This paper addresses these issues in relation to performance measures and offers a fresh perspective on the performance measures required to report the strategic outcomes expected by the funding agencies and community. © 2014 Taylor & Francis Group.
