Frank and Silvia Manley are the owners of a GTS V8 Monaro, an iconic Australian muscle car from the 1970's
This one at 40 years of age and in near mint condition, is a good example of why the Monaro was once so popular.
Yet this particular car is best known as the vehicle that was hanging off the Tasman Bridge on the 5th of January 1975.
That night at 9.30pm, the 1.5 kilometre bridge which spans the Derwent River and connects the eastern and western shores of Hobart, was hit by the bulk ore carrier Lake Illawarra.
The force of the collision caused a 127 metre section of roadway to crash down into the river and onto the deck of the sinking vessel.
In total 12 people died in the disaster, 7 on the Lake Illawarra and 5 motorists that drove over the edge.
The loss of the bridge also had a social impact, as 30% of the Hobart population was isolated from the city centre and a number of essential services. The bridge officially re-opened in October 1977.
The Monaro, as well as the images capturing it suspended on the edge of the bridge, are reminders of a major Hobart event.
