Personal Details and History:

I'm 34 and live in Brisbane on its south side. I've worked on cars since I was younger than 10, my father tried his best to drum into my mind the basics of working on cars as well as basic welding and panel beating. Most if not all of those lessons were quickly forgotten and now I'm trying to teach myself it all again.

Vehicle History:

My family has always owned HRs, my parents still currently own a 67 161 HR ute and a 67 161 HR army sedan.
