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.
