Decluttering is hugely over-rated. Back to basics: EK Holden. Although his family is best known for their show stopping customs Nathan Grima's first car just had to be original. The result is a car in absolutely original nick and so good that it scooped the major gongs at the recent EK Nationals in Forbes and Grima has already knocked back a sizeable offer from a serious collector.
What Grima has built over six years, off and on, is simply the best EK in the country and a car that is even better than when it rolled off the assembly line way back in17 years before he was born. He was given the car by his father also an EK head-case for his 16th birthday but even at that tender motoring age, when young blokes crave fat wheels, hyped-up engines and stadium-sized stereos, Nathan knew he wanted it original.
But I've always loved originals and no one else in the family has an original EK. The teenager's first job was to try to source original accessories and he agrees it's as hard to go authentic as it is to modify. The then-apprentice mechanic and his father, Tony, stripped the car back to bare metal and a mate, Paul Abela, cut the rust out and repaired the body.
So bad was the rust, he had to replace the complete floor with one from an EK in better nick. With the body finished it was primed then sat under a dust cover for a few years while the now-licenced Grima indulged himself with a fast car - a worked, show-winning Gemini coupe.
With an impending wedding, work began on the EK again. The Holden was registered two days before his big day and used as the bridal car; Grima risked an early divorce by working right up until the ceremony to finish it.
As a measure of how much of a perfectionist Grima is, he hand cleaned and zinc coated every original nut and bolt on the car. It's this sort of attention to detail that makes a show winner, as a glance under the body shows.
Grima says putting the car back together without damaging any of the new paint was the trickiest job and nothing was ignored. We tried about 20 doors from his dad's collection to find the ones with the best fit. The original pitted brightwork was re-chromed or polished by Michael Richincluding the diecast rear taillight surrounds. Maybe he should call his car an EK Premier!
Under the bonnet is the cleanest engine bay this side of a new F1 car, painted in original colours. Easily fitting in is the original ci 'grey' motor with Stromberg carbie, backed by a three-speed Hydramatic gearbox the EK was the first automatic Holden and an original 'banjo' diff.Brakes and suspension replaced.

Collecting cars is one of the most rewarding and noble hobbies. Not only do you collect the vehicles themselves, but you also help preserve the history of a particular car brand.
As an Australian auto manufacturer, Holden has been a symbol of Aussie engineering ever since its creation in As the first ever Holden car, the mid-sized sedan is the icon of the Aussie GM brand.
Its famed curves show themselves at every angle. The bumpers are made of classic chrome and so are the hubcaps. The Holden EK is another car that everyone adored. It has the signature sedan style of the s, complete with dagmar bumpers and the iconic forward-angled headlight design we all love.
It was manufactured from toso only a handful exist. It replaced the EK series, debuting with an aggressively angled front grille and a solid, aerodynamic design philosophy. Its bigger brother, the Holden HR with its range of sedan and station wagon variants improved on the classic solid construction of its predecessor and infused a modernised quality into the design.
The Holden HR Premier is a classic car that oozes style from bumper to bumper. It has a two-toned beige and white colour scheme that fit the era nicely, making it an aesthetic piece of automotive history. The Series Holden Ute is a true model of classic automotive engineering with its elliptical rear wheel wells and imposing dagmar bumpers. Dont let the formidable look fool you, its a reliable workhorse that looks sleek while trucking heavy loads.
