Born: Melbourne 1936

A FEW WORDS ABOUT THE AUTHOR..

Since the late 1950’s, Dave has had an ongoing involvement with big time’ Australian motorsport in many ways. Names from the past, like Murray Carter, Len Lukey, Pete Geoghegan, Norm Beechey, Eddie Thomas and in more recent times, most significantly Peter Brock. He purchased a new 186S HR HOLDEN Premier sedan in 1967 that he upgraded and called the ‘Sprint GT’ with the intention of making an ‘up market’ car with spectacular performance, to be sold through a local Holden Dealer. This car created much media attention. Holden were especially interested in the boosted performance and had discussions with Dave, eventually leading to the development of the famous XUl Torana. Subsequently the introduction of the Yella Terra heads for Holden 6 and V8 engines, of which some 250,000 were sold. From a performance perspective, Perfectune’s connections and resulting contract with HOLDEN for cylinder head services, was pivotal in the development of the business. Dave had the foresight to spend money on highly productive capital equipment, developing a small operation into a significant business.
