Because it's not all about V8's. I'm guessing this was the standard engine for many a Holden family car for a number of years. The EH seems to be very much along the same lines as our FB Victor apart from the engine sizes. A very cool image mate of a solid dependable engine.

It looks so compact from this POV and nothing to compare it to!

They always look so nice when they're clean and set out so you can see how they work. Great shot!
