Aussie Pride: 13th New Zealand Holden Na­tion­als

The GM En­thu­si­asts Club hosted the New Zealand Holden Na­tion­als at Ard­more over An­zac week­end.

This ex­am­ple still runs the orig­i­nal twindis­trib­u­tor– equipped 10A twin-ro­tor en­gine, all num­bers match­ing. To see more on this clas­sic beauty, head over to Themo­tor­hood.
