First love a classic

OLD FAVOURITE… Shepparton’s Andrew Phillips is pictured with his 1967 HR Special model Holden. Photo: Alicia Zeqir.IT was a hard job choosing which one of Shepparton exhaust fitter, Andrew Phillips’ motor toys would be best suited for this week’s Me and My Wheels (he’s got one for every day of the week).
As the owner of a 1969 Cadillac Coupe Deville, among other cars, and a brand new Harley Davidson motorcycle, Andrew decided on his latest four-wheel collection addition, a 1967 HR Special edition Holden.
In restored original condition with powerglide automatic transmission and disc brakes, as they say, she’s a classic.
“It’s just a nice Sunday drive car,” Andrew says after buying from a friend just three months ago.
“I guess I like it because my first car was a HR Holden when I was 14.”
