    Default Looking for scale model of HQ Premier Station Wagon

    Hi all,

    My first post, so will introduce shortly: my name is Menno van der Meer, 45 y/o, from Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

    In 1999-2000 I traveled all over OZ as a back-packer. Where most fellow back-packers either got themselves a camper-van or a very economic Asian family car, I bought myself a Holden HQ Premier Station Wagon with NSW-registration WFK-138 ("What a F*cking King").

    No doubt, it was the least sensible choice, but how I loved that car right from the start! Coming from Europe, where V8 engines are rare, I immediately fell in love with the sound and powerrrr! It also would fit a 2-person mattress easily, making it the "perfect" car for a Grand Tour of Australia (my then-GF had a very different view on it... ).

    To cut a long story short: I've actually tried to find that car again and import it to Europe, but recently found out it no longer is alive :-(
    So, my next option would be to buy a scale model..

    But wow, those are hard to find! And that's were I'm now calling in for your help: I'm looking for a (preferably) 1:43 scale model of a Holden HQ Premier Station Wagon, but as I understand a Holden Kingswood could do as well (sorry if I offend anybody here, I never really understood the model-range to be honest ...).

    Any help would be so much appreciated!!

    Kindest regards,

    Menno

    Thanks Paulzig,

    Yeah, I've seen the sedans, but really would like to get a wagon.
    With the risk of committing blasphemy: would you know if there's a General Motors USA equivalent of the HQ?

    Thanks!

    No HQ was unique to Australia.

    In a way happy to hear that, as I considered my car to be one of a kind anyway ;-)

    Would you know if there's a US version of the Kingswood Wagon? Or something that comes really close?

    I've got a 1:43 scale model of all cars I ever owned, but my most beloved is missing..

    Thanks,

    Menno
