1957 Holden (GM) Special Sedan
Three on the tree (no auto)
2.2 litre six (132.5 cu in) 71 HP
Just over 1 ton kerb weight

I love it! I learned to drive on 3 on the tree myself. Every time I drive one now it brings back memories...of climbing underneath with a big screwdriver to pop the linkage loose when it would bind up, mostly, lol.
I love that car...I'd like to build one, fit a 9 inch under the back end with a 4 link suspension, some fat rubber on 20's, IFS the front and airbag it all the way around, stuff a nice small block in it with a root supercharger sticking up out of the hood, paint the whole thing outlaw black with some realistic flames that curl into skulls boiling out of the hood and behind the rear wheels...chop it about 3 inches...6 speed auto paddle shift, maybe a 400 dual stage shot of nitrous just as a surprise...yup, I could have some fun with that little beast.

RE: What's your wheels?
Hey! My husband just got me a brand new bicycle! It's sooooo much lighter than my old bike which weighed a ton. I'm thrilled because I ride my bike to do errands around the neighborhood stores and get some exercise at the same time. Now I need a cute little basket on the back to put groceries and stuff in when i do my errands.






What's that, you say?








Yeah I know.......but it does have wheels.

Do you use a deerstalker cap instead of a crash hat when you ride one of those bikes? Tongue

Lotta goodies. I hope you bought the extended warranty. Shit like that breaks, it's more than a couple SSA checks, if it isn't in warranty.

Comes with a 250,000 mile warranty as long as you take it back to the dealership for maintenance.

Worth it! Vehicles nowadays are so complicated with the electronics, I even bought the extended warranty for my new Kia Forte. One part breaks outside of warranty, and that warranty would have been paid for. I can still fix my '70 Chevy Truck, and a couple of other cars I have, but these new things take diagnostic tools that I don't have. It's cheaper for me to buy a car that only takes oil changes and such for 100,000 miles or ten years. I can still do a lot of the maintenance, but that may change as I get older.
