Thank you.

Sounds like someone from Holden gloating after Bathurst.

The gloater is told to let the opposition know about it.

Gowanford?

Right idea, but not Gowanford.
  Calgully Deputy Commissioner

Location:
Telford?
  Valvegear Dr Beeching

Location: Norda Fittazroy
Yep!  I reckoned Calgully would be back with Telford as the correct answer.

Now he can wind us up with another brain teaser.

Dallenger has it.  The tattered old version (rag) inside its newer self (towel) so Tragowel.

A titled Englishman's warm top perhaps.

Definitely not trendy.

Could be hand made at home, or machine made in a factory.

Cardigan?

Indeed it is Cardigan, and it's back over to Calgully.

Thanks Valve.  

This one will get a reaction one way or another.

22.99;  144.24;  26.98;  88.91 or alternatively G1A,P3; 60; G3A,P3; G3B,P5.

Not one for me - cryptography is not my strong point!

It's not entirely cryptography.

Read the WHOLE clue.

A knowledge of science will help though - in fact it's essential.

Aha!
I was checking distances which got me nowhere.
The first four numbers are Atomic masses of Sodium, Neodymium, Aluminium and Yttrium respectively.
Using their chemical symbols gives me Na, Nd, Al, and Y, which looks suspiciously like Nandaly.
  Calgully Deputy Commissioner

Location:
Well done, it is indeed Nandaly.  The clue did get a 'reaction' after all.

The second (alternative) clue uses the co-ordinates (Groups=columns, Periods=rows) of the elements in the periodic table.

G1A,P3;  Group 1A Period 3 = Sodium (Na)
60;     Atomic number of Neodymium  (It sits outside the main group/period structure)
G3A,P3;  Group 3A Period 3 = Aluminium (Al)
G3B,P5; Group 3B Period 5 = Yttrium (Y).
