This car is a 1955 Fj Holden Special sedan, GM Australia's own car and number 2 holden the first Holden was the 48 215 affectionately called the Fx Holden (Australias first mass produced car)

This FJ of mine is 100% totally original, and been in storage for over 30 years, a one owner deceased estate I was fortunatly able to purchse, plans are too keep this old girl 100% original, do up the brakes/hydralics, replace tyres, replace worn bushes and just drive her as a survivor original vehicle.

the black with flames is a 1959 Ford Mainline (Australian ute) which belongs to my mate and fellow band member mick and was restored by me over a couple of months flat out..... it was based on the 1955 american ford and fitted with a Canadian meteor grille, the ford australia gave it the unique to Australia ute rear end treatment. Ford Australia kept this model going till 1959 right up until the tank model fairlane arrived.

The tu tone green hepcat also belongs to a friend of mine Lilian, it is a 1958 FC Holden Special Sedan, the forth generation Holden, once again unique to Australia, A few of these would have made their way to India in their day, Dad did confirm this to me years ago. This one was given a complete strip down and colour change by myself, this car is used on week ends and on club runs with the fe/fc holden car club of Vic.
