GM connection.

It's only been 12 months since Ol' School Garage opened its showroom at 29 Tradelink Road, Hillcrest. We have sold a lot of cars since then, but I remember our first sale like it was yesterday. Kevin traded in his 72 Chevy Nova and 78 Chevy Corvette on a 60 Chevy Impala 'Bubble-top'. Yes, there seems to be a pattern to Kevin's purchases.

Well Kevin dropped in his Impala last week to get some work done (the subject of an upcoming post) and arranged to be picked up in his 'other ride'. And it wasn't a Chevy! No but it was a GM stablemate none the less...complete with a Chevy small block under the hood.

Kevin's other ride 'aint to shabby'! It's a 1980 Holden WB 'one-tonner' with a HZ Statesman front and interior. Kevin has mounted a 471 Weiand blower on the 350 small block...he doesn't want to be caught short for power at the lights! The copious power generated is sent to the ground via 10 inch tyres on the back (it has 8 inch on the front).

Nice ride Kevin. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Cheers Leon
