Hey guys

Hey guys I’m keen to get a project for me and my kids after the disposition of my beloved HQ Kingswood to a former partner. Long story short I used up all my funds trying to get it back. Anyone happen to have any cheap HQ sedan projects available? It would be going to a good home to be cherished and lovingly restored as our family car.

Holden badges on Chevs.

Putting a Chev badge on a late Commodore is popular amongst some people in Australia.
In the USA, you could order Holden badges from the options list for your new Chev SS: https://www.chevrole...
I wonder how much better they would have sold if they just called them Holdens with Holden badges on them?

Mazda 929 for sale.

I know it's hump day and this isn't a Holden, but for $2,200 this will probably just be bought and neglected by someone who just wants a cheap car: http://goldstar-auto...
To me, something as good as this looks should be put and club rego and driven regularly and enjoyed because it would be something different, something that most people wouldn't even remember seeing on the road.
I know I'd own and drive it.
