SHEPPARTON local, David Miller was thrilled to realise a childhood dream when he happened across a pristine condition, 1970 HG Brougham.
David said, “There was only limited numbers produced when they were released back in 1968/69. Over the three models; the HK, HT and HG there was only approximately 4,500 to 5,000 released, so they’re very rare.
“I was lucky enough to find this one in Melbourne. I’ve wanted one since I was 16. My first car was a HK Premier and my dad had one when he was younger also.
“I’ve always loved the shape, the longer boot… They’re such a luxury car to drive.”
David was lucky enough to stumble across the HG earlier this year on carsale.com and it was in great condition.
David said, “All I’ve done to it since I got it was put on the white wall tyres and lower the back of it. Other than that, it was in great condition.
David is a member of local car club, GV Cars and Coffee and says he loves the opportunity to get the HG out and meet with mates.
David said, “We meet on the second and fourth Sunday of the month, every month at the Motor Museum. We support the local coffee and café establishments, we’re locals who enjoy supporting our locals and what a better way to do it! The two loves of my life; cars and coffee.
“We’re all just like minded enthusiasts, who just quietly enjoy our cars and each other’s company.”
As for his plans with the HG, David says he’s just looking forward to enjoying it.
