Australian Muscle Car - - Out Of Action -

Just flick­ing through is­sue #90 and came across the Out of Ac­tion page. Lo and be­hold, I see all the cars that I own! The red two-door Valiant is in­deed a Pacer, but some low-life took the ID plates. All these cars have been re­moved from this lo­ca­tion and are all up for sale. Hope­fully these relics will come back to life! If any­one is in­ter­ested, I can be reached via achillesclan@ya­hoo.com or 0427 623 293. I’m sure read­ers would be in­ter­ested in an­other car that I, for some rea­son, sold but have now re­pur­chased. It’s a ‘barn­find’ EH found in a shed on the Dar­ling Downs. It was a 179, man­ual, had a per­fect in­te­rior, is match­ing num­bers and had all the doc­u­ments. It had pre­vi­ously sat in the lo­cal Holden dealer’s work­shop from 1979 (that was the last rego la­bel) with an FJ un­til the deal­er­ship closed. The cars then seem­ingly dis­ap­peared. The owner passed on a few years back and his wife put ev­ery­thing up for sale. I found out the EH had been stored in his barn and was able to pur­chase it along with a lot of new old stock. I also pur­chased his last work­shop ute and a HJ Holden in great con­di­tion. The FJ had been pur­chased prior to this and re­mains lo­cal. It was in a sim­i­lar con­di­tion. Ge­off
