1. There are no computers or silly electronic
devices on board, that tell you your car is stuffed, when it
2. If you hit anything soft (like a Hyundai)
you'll come up trumps. 3. Anyone over the age of fifty used to
own one, and therefore can fix them.
4. You will never get a speeding ticket.
5. AM radio occasionally plays some hep music,
like Hank Williams and Elvis.
6. You get to travel in style!
Skinny Tim is the bloke to talk to about 50s
cars, so he's busy writing the complete guide to Hep Australian
cars, which should be here soon, stay tuned.
As we said at the offset, cars were so Hep in the 1950s, they didn't
even have air-conditioning.
Before Hyundai came along and single-handedly
fucked up the Australian car industry forever, we had some great
cars, all of which should still be on the roads today. Australians
are obsessed with cars, but only tacky ones by the look of it
Lets face it, you can pick a bloody good 1950s
or 60s car for next-to-nothing these days, as everyone else seems
far too concerned with driving a piece of red plastic down the
road. This has always been a sure-fire way to show people that
you have the grip on Australian Style, and a good 50s Holden
or Ford should set you back anywhere between $750 and $10,000
bucks. Unless you want it to work, in which case you might have
to fork out a bit more.
