Last of the all-Aussie ma­chines

“IT started with my first car, a VL Com­modore; 3.0-litre, five-speed, just un­break­able. I had a lot of fun in that. From then on just pro­gres­sively got dif­fer­ent mod­els: VT, VZ, up to VE then gone back to a VT. I like work­ing on these ones a bit more and I find there’s a bit more en­joy­ment in the older ones. They’re fun to drive and you know ex­actly what the car’s do­ing. I’ve al­ways had a soft spot for the VT [and] had to have a 5.0-litre be­ing the last of that car. It hasn’t been a very pop­u­lar model but I think they’re start­ing to gain a bit more pop­u­lar­ity. I might look at an HSV down the track.”
