Sam Lagana (right) with Dominic Ciancio and the HQ Monaro Sam is going to restore.

Mr Lagana collected the shell from Tatura Panels on Wednesday, where it had been left to have the rust sections cut out.

‘‘The next step is to have the shell sand blasted before re-building the car and returning it to the panel shop for painting,’’ he said.

The HQ Monaro ‘‘show car’’ is Mr Lagana’s third venture, having already restored a 1957 Chevrolet and an SS Torana.

‘‘I also have a HZ GTS Monaro which dad (Sam) bought brand new,’’ he said.

‘‘I am a real Holden man.’’

Mr Lagana reckons it will take him about 18 months to fully restore the car and have it on the road for his brother.
