You've inspired me to give my car a good clean up. Because its always garaged, i get lazy and don't really give it the attention it deserves. I used to be fastidious but im getting old and lazy. I'm nearly 48 mate!

You have a very nice car there mate! You remind me of me at 23yrs old. I had my car, at the time it was just another old HT kingswood sedan. They were everywhere. All my mates told me to... sell it and by something newer,...... put it on gas..... work the 308 motor....... lower it......... take off the spats...........put a premier interior in it ........ put in air con.....
Bottom line, I never touched it, just maintained it and kept the fish oil up to it. Its probably worth more today because of that. I only advise you to do the same. Don't listen to the people who will tell you all sorts of things to do to your car, like drop a V8 in it etc...
Its only original once.
Because i haven't fiddled with it and it is exactly the same car that i bought when I was 23 it means a lot more to me and my family. It's the one constant that has never changed and although i've have a few serious very tempting offers for it, I think it will always be kept in the family.
Your car could be the same for you on the future, loved by the whole family!
Alby

Thanks guys, its a nice honest car. While its not perfect, theres no rust, it runs well and i'll get many years of enjoyment out of her.

It's proving to be a conversation starter.

I had trouble getting away from the mechanic, even though he's a ford guy, he has a real soft spot for the older stuff, an we spent near on an hour chatting.

The neighbours came over while i was washing it to have a look. Guys at the service station were admiring it.

Its funny how a car can get complete strangers talking about the good old days. Now i just got to get it registered and take it for a decent cruise.

Nice one Matt, had a mate years ago that had a V8 auto HJ Prem
same colour but cream vynil roof.
Every time I see that colour it reminds me of dad's 74 HJ
Stato Deville. Was a great drive, went MIA late 80's from memory.
