Week 26(A) - a few old Holdens.
This local 1965 HD was outside the pub last week. The HD was the most shortlived Holden model. It was a bit of a culture shock after the EH and wasn't taken up with enthusiasm and at the end of the year they moved on to the HR like this roughy for sale at the swap meet.
Actually, I had a 179 HD when they were relatively new and I liked it. It was that teal colour that Port Power use, with a white roof. It wasn't as quick as my brother-in-law's X2 version but I could keep up with him nevertheless. I think the X2 had twin carbies and extractors. We both moved on to Warwick yellow GTSs when they came out.
This is an EJ sitting in the rain on the Perry Road corner trying to take advantage of the passing traffic from the trotting track in the hope of a possible sale. The EJ was the last model to use the good old grey engine before the red motors came out in the EH.
