I have owned the EK for over 14 years, and driven it for 12 of those years.
I Bought the 1961 EK Holden Special Sedan in 1985. I was told I was the 3rd
owner. The engine, and brakes weren`t going and the paint job wasn`t too
flash as a result of spending too long in a leaky shed by the previous
owner. After much work the EK was going, looking spectacular and an absolute
pleasure to drive, ideal for cruisin` around. The EK was used as my normal
everyday car, so as a result it has a few knocks and scratches. Not bad
though for a car born in 1961. One of the great things about the EK is the
fact that you can easily work on everything yourself, no computers or fancy
electronics within cooee of this baby! and there`s enough room under the
bonnet to jump in there yourself and work on it. It`s a great having
everyone compliment the EK everywhere you go. Unfortunately, the EK was
unable to get enough of my time and effort to keep it going. Which is why
I`m selling it. To (hopefully) let someone (who loves the EK as much as me)
give it the time and patience it needs and deserves. I`m sad to sell it, but
the EK needs to be out on the road cruisin`, not locked up in garage...
