DONNA Radford, of Kin Kora, shows off her 1966 Holden HR ute in this week's Me and My Ride.

NAME: Donna Radford.

Suburb: Kin Kora.

Make, model and year of car: 1966 Holden HR utility.

How long have you had it? Almost three years.

Where have you been in it? Cooly Rocks at Bargara, Rockhampton, Agnes Blues and Roots Festival, all over the place.

What upgrades have you had done to it? Custom flames and skull airbrush paint, worked the motor and put in a five-speed Celica gearbox.

Would you ever trade it in? Hmm … probably not, but you can make an offer at Run in the Sun.

Is this your dream car and why? If not, what is your dream car? Not really. My dream car is a Chevrolet Apache truck.

How do you look after it? Having it serviced, cleaned and keeping it under cover.
