Can't remember the HG much but I think 70, a mate had the 327 GTS and always admired it... Not many produced but great muscle! Yellow but once again, family commitments. Single mates had XU1's but I was out of the scene by then. Then an XB 302 panel Van... Yellow GS. As a single guy I had a corolla sprinter and passed a copper in a mini cooper S on the Hume Highway at 110 mph downhill and he let me go, probably couldn't believe he's been blown off by a corolla!
I foolishly let a stupid mate drive my HG and he asked me what happens if you select P at highway speeds? Bang! Is what happens!
Then a plethora of cars and bikes since the 'good old days' and now a sedate Hilux and Aurion with a corolla for shopping.
At the end of the 70's I had a tricked up red Celica fastback with all the bells and whistles but another victim of a stupid driver who hit me head on on the highway out of Nowra.
Oh, the gtho, private guy who was later killed, sad times for me
I was probably saved by family commitments
