How about a HR Holden coupe? What would it have looked like? Why did Holden not build it? We have the full story.

John Maclurcan shares his passion for his 1962 Vauxhall VX 4/90, Australia's first locally-assembled affordable luxury sports sedan. John has driven the VX 4/90 all around the UK on its NSW licence plates!

Lance Wilson collects and restores historic speedway cars. He shows us his Trostle sprintcar, driven by American ace Larry Burton when he toured this country in 1980. It is all original!

Everyone knows about the Edsel. What is less known is that it could have looked very different had it been based on the Mercury XM 800 concept car as was originally planned. We have the story about how this stylish Mercury lost the competition to be the new Edsel but ended up in a movie, became a technical test bed at an American university, was left forgotten in a barn and now resides in a museum.

Cheers.....David "

CMC Update....
Council of Motor Clubs

As reported earlier the CMC has been active with technical representative on the Vehicle Standards Working Group, for those members wanting to restore a car by replacing the body and/or major components without having to make it into a "new car".
