I'm not a revhead, but I come from a Holden family. Not a Holden worker family, but the type of Holden family that used to get up before sparrow's fart to catch the bus five hours to Bathurst to watch Peter Brock race (my job as a kid was to pre-butter loaves of bread for the sausage sizzle). The kind of Holden family where my brother forbid Dad from parking the work ute in our driveway for the crime of being a Ford.
