The best ideas are usually the simplest. Take, for example, Laurie O’Neil’s idea for John Sheppard in the early ‘70s: to build the best sport sedan in Australia.

It took until 1975 for the product of that idea to hit the track, but when it did it more than lived up to expectations.

The car was Pete Geoghegan’s HJ Monaro Sports Sedan, lovingly known here as the Craven Mild Monaro, and it was a monster. Head to the Shannons Club to learn what made it tick, and why it left an everlasting impression on motorsport.
