MARK ‘ HAPPY ’ WIL­LIAMS

HQ ONE-TONNER MAR 17

Street Machine - - Your Stuff -

NINE years in the build, Mark ‘Happy’ Wil­liams’s tough Quey runs a Procharged and in­ter­cooled 406-cube small-block Chev, and was built as an all­rounder. He proved that by clean­ing up in the driv­ing events at Summernats 30, where, com­bined with a top score in the Elite judg­ing, he bagged the cov­eted Grand Cham­pion sword – the first West Aus­tralian to do so. It was a bit­ter­sweet vic­tory for Happy, as his dad, who put a lot of work into the HQ, passed away on the Fri­day of Summernats. Mark swapped his 2HAPPY num­ber plates to 4MYDAD as a trib­ute. “I know he would have been smil­ing watch­ing down on me,” he said.
