I vowed I'd never look back but what the heck - does anyone know if my old HG sedan is still out there.
I sold it in 2004 after 17 years of ownership and I heard it was going to be a donor for a Monaro restoration. Hasn't been registered for over 5 years so if that's the case I'd be interested in the shell if it exists.
I've dis-assembled the front end panels for a rebuild on my WB PV, when reassembling, should I insert any thing between the panel bolting positions - in the way of a sealant or such like, or does it go back together as painted metal against painted metal.
thanks in anticipation

Needed money going through Uni sold it to a mate of my Dads, his name was Ed Buchannan ( sold bibles for a living I think) he was going to tinker with it with his son but sadly his son passed away and I was overseas and lost touch with the family. Anyone know anything about it or its whereabouts?
Any of you guys here live at or near Echuca in Victoria? Just got back after a week and a half away and one of the places we visited was Echuca. Older cars everywhere. Visited the old Holden collection, very interesting. The HR wagon I put up belonged to an old fella, it was stolen and recovered 15 years later. The old fella had it restored, but by the time it was finished, he was too sick to drive it. He ended up dying, and the car carried his coffin.
Anyway, the amount of old cars cruizing the streets each day is unbelievable. Most on club rego. Most are standard factory looking cars, and none that I saw had holes in bonnets or other things that attracted attention from the police. No driving like idiots, just cruising. Very relaxing time, it was, while we were there.
Anyone know where the boot globe fitting goes in the HK boot. Cannot find a picture to show this anywhere?
is it on the boot seat divider upper middle?
