What does it take to get dude47 and Dome together?

Dude’s man is in town to dip into the local hot-car business and Pelling’s shifty couple of gamblers are whispering their knowledge of the same man into the ears of the Melbourne Police.

Adelaide ran to gangsters in operating the stolen car and re-branding business.

Melbourne the same for the illegal baccarat business.

Two cities, two illegal business run by two groups of gangsters. One dead man thought to have been involved with both.


There was mention made many years ago of a 1940’s gangster known for his fondness of the Rubaiyat. I can’t find it.

    I like the Dome its just that his site is dominated by the Colonel. I dont even mind the colonel when he’s talking sense but when he gets all troll like and bitchy I loose interest fast.

    • Dome had a complex slip and Rubaiyat routine, end result being that Chemist Freeman bought a stolen car from George. Judged a bit shaky at the time but he might have been on the money with the basics.

    They’re both dirty businesses. But could they be laundering each other’s money?

    • Do you mean is one man laundering another’s money? Or a partnership where one is doing the laundering for both?

        Either, really. I’m looking for the bit in the middle of the Venn diagram of these two fields of endeavour.

        And money is always a good start, right?

        • That could be a problem if one is acting in opposition to the other. That is to say, one has stolen what the other owns.

  3. The question isn’t about whether we can speculate our way to the chequered flag (because the odds are many millions to one against).

    The question isn’t even whether we can circumstantially evidence our way to the chequered flag, because we’re all talking pretty good stories now – prospectors, interstate car thieves, nitkeepers. Perhaps they’re all the same story.

    The only genuine question is whether we can hard evidence our way to the finishing line. And that has always been the hardest game in town, and the only game that I’ve wanted to play.

    I believe that were we to find out more about the baccarat angle, there is hard evidence there to be had. Who were those two prominent players? And who was the journalist who reported the story?
