A HUGE THANK you to my nephew Tim Corney who, along with a bunch of mates, pulled an old Holden out of a ditch, drove it up onto the trailer by using the starter motor to power the car, got it home and made it into a paddock basher. Thank you Tim for your generosity in sharing your story, and for your time and patience with my questions. Just for the record: Tim certainly isn’t Jake.


THANK YOU TO my brothers Mike and Ben for answering yet more questions.


THANK YOU TO Joshua Long, and to Jimmy and Lucas Lipidis: I’m very grateful to you all for your technical expertise.


TO THE BOYS of 9VM and 10BC of Rongotai College: you’re awesome! Your comments about titles and the cover were insightful and a great help in figuring out the final design. Special thanks to Sep Ryder for your title suggestions.
