Car of the month

Model:1964 EH Holden station wagon

Owner: Brent Schofield

History: This car was originally purchased by Mick Cooper for use as a hearse. When it finished these duties, he changed it from black to white and used it for a daily driver.

An unusual feature is the big gap in the front seat to allow a coffin to fit in!

Brent bought the car in 2005 and it still has only 46,000 miles on the clock. This averages out at less than 1000 miles a year. What a good buy, Brent!
