Here is "my story". I am
now 53 years old. I have had a love of cars and all
things automotive for all of my life. I can recall at
six years of age my teacher telling me off for staring
out the window watching the cars drive by!
Monaro GTS HT
is an awesome vehicle
Originally born in England, we migrated
as a family to Australia in November 1966. The first
thing I noticed was that the cars were a lot different
to those in England bigger, stronger looking
and more powerful. As the sixties drew to a close, 1968
and 1969 cars became sexier and more aggressive in looks.
For me the late sixties and early seventies were my
years of automotive passion! Being a single young man
I was able to own some very nice high performance Australian
cars a 1972 Monaro GTS coupe and two Ford Falcon
GTs (if only I had known then what I know now - these
cars are now worth a small fortune!).
I became a qualified Motor Mechanic and served my apprenticeship
at a Volkswagen dealer. I now work for GM Holden.

I have collected automotive literature
for most of my life with the large amount of my collection
being brochures, and I enjoy a wide variety of makes
and topics. My passion is for literature from the 1960s
and 70s, especially high performance. I enjoy collecting
brochures from overseas; England, U.S.A., South Africa
and other nations. I love the art work of the early
Volkswagen brochures as well as the awesome art work
of the late 60s and early 70s Pontiac, Chevrolet and
Ford brochures. I have found collecting Automotive literature
to be very addictive and very rewarding. Also it is
a great investment.
Brochures that don't measure up in quality I will sell
to provide the funds to purchase a good quality item.
I have been buying on eBay but have found that some
people's idea of "excellent" is totally different
to mine and have been very disappointed many times.
It is fantastic to have "found" McLellan's.
It's like being a little boy in a sweet (candy) shop!
I spend hours just looking, taking notes and forever
adjusting my wish list!
Thanks for the oportunity to share with you "my
