It's a 1979 Holden Commodore SL, powered by a 3.3 litre straight 6. It had standard steel wheels when I was looking to buy it, I told the dealer I wanted fancy wheels, so he took me to his wrecking yard, always a good sign, and said, take your pick. If you buy the car, you can select any wheels you want. So I chose these, chromed steel rims with machined steel plate welded in the centre, and painted white. And it had chrome bumpers as well. I was always at those wheels with the WD40 and fine grade steel wool.

    Thanks, one of the first things I saved up for after buying it was suspension upgrades. Lowered it 2 inches on Lovell springs and Monroe shocks. Next up was some Genie headers and a 2.5 inch exhaust. I still have the free Genie keyring they gave me.

    Oh yeah, I forgot about that. It's a red nose. They have this thing called Red Nose day, it's a charity thing, you could buy a nose to wear, or a pen, and even one for the car. It was to raise money for research into SIDS, sudden infant death syndrome, they used to be on everything. They had to change them every year so people didn't cheat and use last year's noses.

    My son asked that I pick him up from elementary school in the Vette, so it got to stretch its legs today.
