HDT, with a difference

We had a regular WB Statesman back in the early ‘90s and we absolutely loved it, that is, until somebody ran into the back of it and wrote it off.

We’ve always been big Peter Brock fans and we always wanted another WB, so really the Magnum was a no-brainer.

We had to travel over to Western Australia to get this one, but it’s an original car with just 65,000 kilometres on the clock from new.

Originally we thought we might try and tidy it up a bit, but it’s such an original car inside and out, that now we think we might just drive it and enjoy it.

We’ve also got an EH Holden which we’ve had since 1982 and Margaret’s got an FC wagon which her father bought in 1961.

We’ve also got a couple of Austin 7s as well, so, from the powerful ones, to the ones with not much power!
