Australian Muscle Car - - Muscle Maniac -

is no re­place­ment for the smell of petrol and the roar of old style V8 en­gines and the rum­ble, plus the feel­ing of vinyl. And for that the Aussie Mus­cle Car Run is a must do event. What’s in your own ve­hi­cle fleet?

I have a fully re­stored EH Holden, a 179 Spe­cial, plus the HJ Kingswood that was in the movie I did with Paul Hogan, Char­lie and Boots. I’ve had that fully re­stored. In the movie it had bucket seats, but I’ve put the bench­seat back in. That’s a 202. I’ve got Utes and bikes around the farm, too. I’m an am­bas­sador for In­dian mo­tor­cy­cles and Vic­tory mo­tor­cy­cles, so I’m sorted when it comes to bikes. And my daily drive is a Porsche Cayenne GTS, so I do have a V8 at my fin­ger tips. No mus­cle car, as such?

I am lack­ing an Aussie mus­cle car in my garage, yes, which I’ll have to rec­tify. That’s the thing I loved about the Aussie Mus­cle Car Run – I got to sam­ple so many great ex­am­ples. It was a fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence. To en­ter you do need to own – or at least have ac­cess to – a mus­cle car, but I en­cour­age read­ers to get out there and travel this great coun­try with some won­der­ful, good-hearted peo­ple.
