1985 HOLDEN RB GEM­INI SL/X

Unique Cars - - HOLDEN DREAM CRUISE – 2017 -

MY MUM, Phyl­l­ida McMullen bought this Gem­ini on 10 July 1986 af­ter it had sat around at Gil­bert Mo­tors for al­most a year. I bought it off her when my Corolla packed up; it came with the orig­i­nal books and ev­ery­thing. I drove it to-and-from­work for years and it never missed a beat, so when I up­graded to some­thing with auto and air­con, I de­cided never to sell it.

Every time I see the Gem­ini, it re­minds me of Mum. I’ve now joined the Sport­ing Car Club of SA and have put it on the new club rego scheme. When I saw the ‘En­durothon’ RB Gem­ini in the Na­tional Mo­tor Mu­seum, I thought that one day she might have her shin­ing mo­ment and it’s come to­day!
