Patina Arena: 1948 48/215 FX Holden Sedan

November 26, 2015

When I was visiting Australia back in August 2015, I dropped by Willowbank Raceway for some drag racing action. There was a show-n-shine going on, which was a nice surprise.

This FX Sedan was built in 1948. It has a 2,170cc inline 6 engine.
