A BANJUP local’s pride and joy is one of 200 stunning vehicles set to go on display at the Perth Speed Fest Motor Show in December.

Kyal Agar took a major punt when he bought a 1973 Plymouth Cuda sight unseen from Iowa in 2007.

Fortunately for Mr Agar, he was rewarded with a great car.

“I was living in Broome when it arrived, so flew down to Perth with a mate to collect the car and drive it the 2200km back,” he said.

“We had to stop at almost every service station along the route too because we could scrape only 300km from a tank. It was certainly a road trip to remember.”

Mr Ager said his loud and low fuel burner drew plenty of attention.

“Some people don’t realise, until you start laughing, that their mouth is wide open as they stare,” he said.

The Perth Speed Fest will showcase a range of motorsport disciplines and include appearances from Australia’s biggest names in motorsport, including F1 driver Daniel Ricciardo and MotoGP rider Jack Miller.
