Saw the write-up in the guide and decided to record it, Surprised with the great late 80's footage of Adelaide. Magic Mountain, Glenelg, city shots etc. Loved the old cars.
Actually found the service station: Corner Henley Beach Road and Military Road, Adelaide, South Australia. Now a SAFF service station and across the road the video store is now Video Ezy. Looks like the hair salon is now a TV and Video repair shop.
Just love watching these old films that I missed out on when I was growing up and seeing all the old cars, locations and seeing what has happened to them.
The performances are okay, considering the film is a snapshot of 80's Australian life... kids, cars, relationships etc.
