Love it , Had a HQ station wagon , 3 on the tree , linkages used to get stuck between 1st and 2nd gears , it was a great car .
Its funny that almost all the old cars mates and i owned in the early 80's are now worth a fortune .

Same, I had an old HR wagon, 3 on the tree, drums all round, and no seatbelts, great old rig though.

Sorry to keep the off topic discussion going, but..

That was when you had to DRIVE a car
I sold this around twelve years ago now, and I kind of wish I hadn’t.

She wasn’t the best handling vehicle I’ve owned... actually I’ll go as far as to say it was positively the WORST handling car I’ve ever owned (you get that with fifty year old everything), however it was also the one that put the biggest smile on my face.

My plan is to one day get an FJ Ute, but I haven’t found the right one yet.

And they are getting rare as rocking horse s**t these days. If you're on farcebook, look up Holden Grey Motor Enthusiast Group there is some good cars, people, and info there

My mates old man is a mechanic, over years, mostly in his younger days he had heaps of good toys. -HK 327 Monaro, 69’ RS Camaro, LC GTR, 2x Cooper S’, Z28 Camaro, plus others along the way. He damn near wells up in the eyes when he thinks about the money he could’ve had and what they’re worth now.. haha. I usually laugh an say “well if my aunty had balls she’d be my uncle!!”
It is what it is hey..

We all look back and wish the same, we used to race speed way in the early days we raced mainly 34 or35 ford v8 single seater coups we used to cut out the roll bars when they were too wrecked buy another car for about 15 to 20 pounds and weld the bars into it to race until it was destroyed. I could have retired early on what they are worth now.

Nah. Don't regret seeing mine go. At least I lived then, gave them heaps and enjoyed doing it. Mopar, Monaro, Ford, Pontiac, etc.
Still have a couple of oldies left, but they just sit there.

I think the ones that are worth serious money are the desirable models in excellent original condition. Too much wear and tear, too much mileage, too many modifications, too many repairs, too run of the mill, and they arent worth much.
