1958 Holden FC
Developing an idea. Getting in up to your arm-pits. Resource pooling. Relocation.
The onion. The truth. Decisions, decisions. Backyard artisans.
So, for the longest time, parts three four and five are unfinished. Not because I don't have a great story to tell, rather a hundred other stories took precedence. Life, work, marriage, kids, work, music.
If you have waited, and waited for these stories to be told — I apologise. For now, the placeholders will remain, and one day, I finish the story.
I still have this damn car mind you and it's nearly due for another restoration! Money pit.
Part Three — Slow Progress
Steel and elbow grease. Rubbing. More rubbing. Furniture for your car. Some painting and more rubbing.
Part Four — Manufacture and Impatience
Reassembly. Sourcing new bits and bolts. Wiring without a clue. Lessons in manufacture and customisation. Testing.
Part Five — Ready for the Road
Registration. Old rubber. Tanked. Trimmed. Lusting for lustre.
