I HAVE enjoyed SM since my youth in the mid-to-late 80s; I have hundreds of your great mags. Love your work, especially the special editions like Hot Rod and LSX Tuner. I like Telf’s EJ, mainly because it’s unique and not just for show.

I got infected by my first ride – a ’68 two-door GTS – and the many Holdens, early Chevs and Valiants in our family only fed the illness. I like V8s, but I love the old Holden and Val sixes. I have a few – an EJ grey motor with triple SUs and auto, a 179, 186, 202.

I told my wife my need for ‘rusty gold’ is worsening; my doctor is working on a cure.
