Cars for sale DOH!

Hi All
Hope you're all good
Only a bit annoyed when I see the ads at the bottom of the pages and I see this

http://oldholden.com...

and I get all excited only to realise the ads about 12 year old

any reason such old ads are still up? And are there any recent ones for sale.

cheers

Wish i still had my windowless EH van.
A bloke was doing it up and got the body perfect in undercoat grey, then got sick of it and traded it in at Tony Packard Holden in Castle Hill.
They sold it to me for $150. It was more than the wreckers would give them. It was about 1977.

Old is good.

I passed on a windowless FJ panno for $600 in around ‘85, thought it was a bit exy

according to an on line Aus inflation calculator, $150 in 1977 is now equivalent to $832.02....and Bryan's $600 when he could have had the van in 85 would now be $1723.47...:-)

She's a beauty,love it.We were talking about the bare bones Holdens and how cool they are😄There is a HK Belmont panel van for sale in your neck of the woods which sparked off the conversation.Do you mind if he puts it on his Instagram page or if you are on Instagram I can link you to his page?He is a great bloke and very protective of content on there,this is his page.😎👍
Yes you have to put up with Tim's senior moments I think he has more than me😄😄👍

I don't mind using pics at all..I don't use instagram but the kids do..here is a pic of the mighty low compression power plant..it's funny how tastes can change but yeah there is something about the bare bones, no trim kind of look - very clean...I don't think many Standard sedans were produced and very few have survived..I went to a HR 50th birthday a couple of years ago..there was a lot of HRs but only 2 Standard sedans...very plain interior as well - no arm rests..just holes for the door light switches..no door mirror - just some ancient portable thingy...I did lash out early in the year and re trimmed the front seat...the cover cost a stack so put it on myself...I'd like to replace the carpet with the original looking rubber but too much of a tight arse lol

mate it prob looks a bit better in pics than reality..it's no show car ..I use it quite regularly just for a bit of fun - get to work etc..no synchro in first can be a bit of a pain in the city at times and the drums all round which no matter how much I adjust seem to have a mind of their own can be a bit harrowing if someone cuts in front

That $150 was almost a week's after tax wages.
Same with the $832 today.
But it does make the EH parts cars with straight, undamaged, rust free bodies we bought for $25 sound cheap.
