Project Rebuild – Car Auction: May 27
A striking, rebuilt 1979 Holden HZ Ute will be going under the hammer at Shannons upcoming Sydney Classic Auction in conjunction with the Hot Rod & Custom Auto Expo on Sunday 27 May, with sale proceeds helping to rebuild young lives.
The ute, with its fresh HQ front end, bright green paint and many high-performance mechanical components, has come together over an 18-month period from a donated ‘basket case’ rolling shell with a tired red six engine, no front sheet metal, interior or swinging panels – thanks to the energy of five local Hunter Valley boys aged 15-17 who are a part of PCYC Cessnock.
The initiative for the project came from PCYC Cessnock Youth Command as a way to assist young offenders and youth at risk to get their lives back on track by exposing them to various facets of the motor industry and learning new hands-on skills.
