Flower power to re­place horse­power

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Quick Find -

DAVID Reed, of Cottes­loe, drives his grand­chil­dren around in a 1928 Chevro­let ute but the ute will soon be filled with flow­ers in­stead.

The ute is on loan to the Perth Royal Show and will be a fea­ture of the Perth Royal Flower Show.

In 1975, Ro­tar­ian David was col­lect­ing bikes in Kal­go­or­lie for a Ro­tary pro­ject when he no­ticed a ute in the shed next door that took his fancy.

When Reed bought the ute for $1000 (now worth around $25000), al­though it cost quite a bit to do up, he had it re­stored.
