Street Machine - - Your Stuff -

JUST flick­ing the pages of the Oc­to­ber edi­tion, and my jaw dropped when I reached Your Stuff on page 29. Kid-in-a-candy-store ex­cite­ment came over me when I saw Michelle Neu­man’s let­ter about her hus­band Jeremy’s LH To­rana. I don’t of­ten think of past cars, but that thing has never left my mind.

I’m a Ford guy, but turn the clock back to the mid-to-late 90s and that pink LH rip­ping up the Summernats burnout pad was un­for­get­table! Pink – not my go; Holden – no thanks; but this pink Holden’s cen­trifu­gal blower, mas­sive revs, sweet fin­ish and Jeremy’s driv­ing style was in my opin­ion the best out there! Michelle de­scribed it per­fectly – it did sound like a jet.

Thanks for the mem­o­ries SM and Michelle – such a shame to hear of the demise of the car. Some­how all true leg­ends are dead. Brett Abra­ham, email
