The video documents the total restoration of "Bambi", a 1964 very neglected 38 Commander Express in Port Mandurah, Australia. Club members Warren Pateman and his buddy Graeme Robertson were the driving (and financial) forces behind this restoration. The sad part of this story is that on launch day, Warren's doctor informed him that he had cancer. Less than two years later on June 18, 2006 Warren passed away. Bambi is still in Australia, a tribute to Warren's vision and foresight.
