COLAC district’s Greg Bishop Junior just “had to have” his HK Premier Holden.
The Kawarren man searched for a year and a half to find the 1968 classic Holden, which he hopes to pass on to his son Seth one day.
“I just had to have it, it didn’t bother me what it cost, that was what I wanted,” Mr Bishop said.
The Holden has its original interior and colour and the added bonus of electric windows.
“It’s got electric windows, which is something that model didn’t come out with,” Mr Bishop said.
“It’s got a 350 Chevy engine in it,” he said.
Mr Bishop, a self-confessed Holden fan, said his four-year-old son Seth thought the car was great.
“I just chuck the family in the car and go for a cruise on a good sunny day,” he said.
“He always says to me on a nice sunny day, ‘can we go in your hot rod today dad?’.”
Mr Bishop said he loved classic cars because “they’re made out of steel and not plastic”.
“You can’t buy that anymore,” he said.
