HI THERE, Street Machine! I’m wondering if you can help me find the last car my dad built before he passed away. It was a candy apple red XY Gt-style ute. Once Dad sold it, the next owner had it featured in Street Machine, we think in the late 80s or very early 90s. Can you guys tell me what issue it was in?

G’DAY William, we’ve had a good look through the early issues and I reckon we featured at least half-a-dozen tough XY utes back then, in just about every colour except red! Your dad’s ute may have been featured in Performance Street Car or Street & Custom, though. Does it ring a bell with anyone out there in reader land?
