Not a stitch sewn all weekend...
We have been away visiting our car crazy DS#2...above is his collection of the Aussie Holden Torana cars and his prized possession the old Aussie Ute.
He drove all the way across the country from one side to the other towing a car trailer just to pick up the metallic bronze car that he bought recently online, while over there he saw and fell in love with the blue Ute, and of course he just had to have it too!
Ever since he was a toddler he has loved cars...played quietly for hours, making roads in the sand or making roads on his bed sheets while in bed and pretended to drive cars in the folds of the bed sheet...
DS's hero Peter Brock also known as 'Peter Perfect' and the 'King of the Mountain', he won the Bathurst 1000 nine times in the 1970s and 80s, sadly was tragically killed last year in a rally car race, Peter was an iconic figure and a legend in his own right, drove Holden Torana's just like the cars above, modified of course for racing.
DS took us for a drive in each of the cars, and I must say the Ute is my favourite of them all, such a classic, it's a 1961 original Wedgwood Blue, in perfect condition.
Just while driving around in it, turning heads as it drove past people...he could have sold it over and over, everyone loves it.
The yellow car is a drag racing car...and boy can she go!....it souped up for racing and runs on Av gas, aviation fuel, and no kidding, when DS hits the pedal it's like taking off down the runway in a jet...she can go!
