Like I said, its just a butchered VL. Nothing special.


If you want to play the obscure Australian iron game, how about this one.

Alright I'll give to you on a base technicality.
It's officially called the Brock Director.

Holden did not authorize or approve Peter Brock's car because he insisted on adding (and broke his lucrative association with Holden/GM), an 'Energy Polarizer' to 'enhance' performance properties of the vehicle. The pseudoscience he marketed was ridiculed by car manufacturers and soon his racing colleagues would soon disassociate from him. Only twelve of them were produced for an extravagant price and were not even compliant to Australian certification and were not allowed to be exported. He ruined his reputation even though he was Australia's favorite & legendary race car hero.
Like an Aussie 959, rare & convoluted history.

I hope nobody minds my jumping in here. It's been quiet a few days,
and I passed on starting a new car earlier due to then not knowing how to post pictures, so here it is!

Arra! You were close! Old redneck, you sort of have it enough to call it done.

Technically, its a Packard Hawk; unofficially its a rebadged Stude.

The main difference is the fish lips frontend which is fiberglass. Only about 588
were sold. It was Packard's fastest car ever.

The deck lid was also different from a Stude Hawk.

I got to see one of these in a museum in Montana on a vacation trip last fall.

The google reference also said these were $700. higher in price than the Stude.,

and though the fish face wasn't a super hit then, that now people have shown more interest.

So Mr. Old redneck; the wheel is in your hands!
