Herald Sun - Motoring - - Onroad -

THE Bow­den’s Own col­lec­tion in­cludes (be­low left) a Shelby Co­bra and Ford GT40 worth $2 mil­lion each, but the dis­play con­cen­trates on clas­sic Aus­tralian race cars and rac­ing his­tory, in­clud­ing (be­low) Norm Beechey’s 1970 Monaro, re­garded as the loud­est car to race in this coun­try.

There’s also men­tion of the ‘‘su­per­car scare’’, a re­ac­tion to the per­for­mance of cars such as (bot­tom) the Fal­con GT-HO, which was the fastest four-door pro­duc­tion sedan in the world.

En­try to the col­lec­tion is re­stricted to buy­ers of Bow­den’s Own big car-care kit.
