Last week I met by chance the lady who owns this car, the BBM1 or Bakewell Bridge Motors Holden Special. She said her late husband drove it at Phillip Island historics.
She thinks it still has the rotary valve grey motor although some googling says the rotary valve engine was replaced in the early 60's with a normal blown grey.
Anyway, not everyday you meet someone with such an interesting beast. She said its now red and being restored and she might put it somewhere on display after that.
Very cool!

Cars from our past, this was my Grandfather's car, a Holden assembled 56 Chev, been in the family for 52 years. I know 68surfwagon has a soft spot for these old Chev's.

Bought this HK ute for $80. The most I'd paid for a wreck. I used to pay a slab for HKTG's. And often drive them home. I needed the running gear for my HG (see thread further down).
Transferred the lot, auto to manual (crashbox) conversion. So much better. It all fitted perfectly, no major work involved.

Throw-back Thursday..

Here's pics of my first 4 cars. The blue HR I drove into the ground and ended up at the tip. The yellow HG was a great car, I sold that when I bought the HZ Prem. This was a very nice car, so nice I sold it before it deteriorated. I then bought the white HG sedan, one of my favourite cars I've owned. I stupidly sent it to the tip when the motor died.

If only we knew then what we know now..

NOT JUST A CAR!

How do you value a car you can't replace? How do you value a car you can't find that is equivalent to an original 58yr old in excellent condition. How do you value a car that will no longer increase in value year after year? How do you value heartache, heartbreak, stress, storage, negligence/rudeness of the truck company, tedious chasing up emails and phone calls to insurances and tears when it's not your fault?
