This article on Brandon's HQ Holden panel van was originally published in the August 2018 issue of Street Machine magazine
“THIS is my Holden panel van; I was given it by the old man when I was 17, and it has been a project since then. It runs a 202 blue motor with a five-speed manual out of a Commodore and a 10-bolt diff.
In the near future I’m putting extractors and sidepipes on it and am going to do a wooden floor in the back, add shag-carpet rooflining throughout and make some bubble windows with a mate from work.
Then once I’m off the P-plates I will put a 253 V8 in it and paint it up as a 1980s-style show van. The model in the photo (above) was at the Rats, Tatts n’ Pinups event at the Stamford Hotel in Rowville.”
