Elu­sive Maloo a per­former like no other


Kalgoorlie Miner - - SPORT - Tori O’Con­nor

Marc Harper found his dream car a lit­tle more than three years ago — a 2011 HSV Maloo Black Edi­tion, No.52 of only 100 made.

Mr Harper said it had al­ways been his life­long goal to own a Maloo.

For six years he searched across Aus­tralia to find the per­fect Maloo, un­til one late night he found it on the web­site Car Sales.

“I rang up the deal­er­ship the next morn­ing and the fol­low­ing day the car was all mine,” Mr Harper said. “I had to make mine look dif­fer­ent.” This par­tic­u­lar Maloo has be­come one of a kind be­cause it has unique num­ber plates, V8PHOENIX, and a cus­tom panel de­sign.

“All the stick­ers on the side of the car are my own de­sign,” Mr Harper said. He said he loved to take his Maloo any­where, even camp­ing.

He has a cus­tom camp­ing set-up in his ute, with a tent fit­ted to the tray and a fridge.

“I like to drive around and travel to places like Esper­ance, Perth and even Mel­bourne,” Mr Harper said.

“It is a very smooth ride for a sports per­for­mance ve­hi­cle.”
