    '62 EK Holden sedan with "grey motor" (first introduced by GMH in '48) and a '62 EK Holden ute also running a "grey" but with mild cam and triple SU's on a Warnerford manifold. Both driven daily.

    I wasn't born into this lifestyle like some, but rather it's one that I chose. A high school friend bought a '59 Cad. in '82 and another friend got a '59 Customline hearse soon after. I loved those cars! They (my friends) introduced me to the "scene" in '85.
    In '86 my then best friend bought an all "Henry" steel, full fenderd '33 roadster while I had a lowered, nosed, decked and de-badged, WWW's on chrome reverse steelie equiped '59 Ford "Cusso" with a blueprinted 390ci. Y block, Bert Jones cam, 4sp Toploader and 4:11 geared 9 inch. Followed by a bobbed & scalloped '42 BSA (rigid frame, girder forks) 600cc. sidevalve single. Then came the '64 Ford wagon "drum kit hauler". In '95 I built a '47 Harley-Davidson (rigid,springer) based, 80ci. "Bob Job". Next, after returning from a three and a half year stint in Japan, came a hemi 6 powerd '70 Valliant wagon (my Mopar). Finally came the early Holdens. The most modern vehicle that I've owned was an SBC powerd '76 Holden ute (TH350, GTS interior, Dragway 5 spokes). I still plan to eventually be able to build at least one of my dream Hot Rods when the house is done and my boys are a bit older.
    I've always loved wild Rockabilly & played in several Rockabilly bands throughout the '90's, highlights including gigs with the Stray Cats, Rockats and Planet Rockers.
