This is a customised 1952 Hillman Minx, very similar to the first one Isuzu built under licence. It's powered by an Isuzu twin cam motor and lives in Perth. The pic is one from the 2015 Hillman calendar

Davo, his name is actually Steve Guarino - he just uses minx as an FB name.

He has recently said he is thinking of selling the car and posted some pics on facebook, hopefully this link will work
