My old HR Holden

In 1988 I was slapped with an “un-roadworthy Certificate”, locally known as a Yellow Sticker, on my faithful old Holden HR station wagon. The police demanded I repair the vehicle  before I drove it on the road again, but I couldn’t afford it at the time,. I was about to leave Perth anyway, to go to live in Newman in the Pilbara Region, so I wouldn’t be needing my car.

I was very sorry to let go of that car as we had traveled lots of kilometres without any problems at all. I wasn’t actually driving it when the police put it off the road. A girl friend was minding it for me while I was interstate.

There is another sad story as she was looking after my cat as well. Now it wasn’t her fault for either of the catastrophes – it was just really unfortunate  that my cat was hit by a car and didn’t survive. It is very difficult to stop cats from roaming! As you can imagine, it was a big shock when I got back home to Perth. I felt sorry for my friend as she was so upset about what had happened!

I got $200 for my car and bought a push bike with the money  🙂

  1. You know what Rainee you are a very brave person I commend you for that.Cats are unpredictable, we don’t let ours go out. Since they don’t know how it feels to be out they don’t complain.I love reading your posts you do so many things.
    Best wishes to you.
