NAME: Phil Brezigar

Suburb: Glen Eden, Gladstone

Make, model and year of car: 2008 Holden VE SS Ute

How long have you had it? Twelve weeks

Where have you been in it? I picked it up from Brisbane and drove it home and now I use it to drive around town.

What upgrades have you done to it? Exhaust upgraded, tinted windows and lowered... the rest I can't say.

Would you ever trade it in? No more trade-ins, the wife would go crazy.

Is this your dream car and why? If not, what is your dream car? This isn't my dream car, but what I would love to have is a Holden 1963 EJ wagon.

I just love the shape and the solid steel.

How do you look after it? I get the wife to wash it in her swimmers once a week and will be sending it to Gladstone Mopower for my tuning and services.

It's the only place in town I send our Dodge Nitro.
