15 August 2017: Classic Pursuit Vehicle FB Group· John SOLVYNS sent this interesting submission through: That’s me at the door. This particular VC Commodore did the rounds of a few places in NSW for trial purposes in, I think, 1983 or 84. It was supplied by GMH with a Garrett turbocharger fitted. I believe it was done in order to try and crack the HWP pursuit car market which was dominated by Ford. Apart from that I don’t know too much of the technical info but there are people out there who could help. It worked very well as an unmarked car as there was an element of surprise. It didn’t end well, the turbo blew and the car was last seen leaving Tamworth on the back of a truck never to be heard of or seen again. You will notice from this picture, the car had a black front spoiler and bonnet vents.

POLICE SEIZE ‘POT’ PLANTS Constable 1/c David WHITEMAN ( # 14994 )( left ) and Constable 1/c John SOLVYNS ( # 15484 ) of Frenchs Forest Highway patrol, with the ‘pot’ plants. Police seized 91 Indian hemp plants found growing in planters in bush at Terrey Hills on Sunday. They believe the plants could be part of a number of crops under cultivation in the area. The 3″ high plants were found only about 50m off Booralie Rd. ”They were sitting in a tidy group in planter trays and ice-cream containers, ” police said yesterday. ” They had obviously been well cared for. “ The plants were in peat soil similar to that bought at nurseries. Police discovered the small plantation after seeing two youths acting suspiciously in the area. They searched a nearby car and found about 250 hemp seeds, a small quantity of hashish and three pipes used for smoking the hemp. Two youths were taken to Frenchs Forest police station for questioning.
I first met John when he joined and was stationed at Eastwood GD’s. I had the opportunity to take him out in a GTR Torana for the shift as I was on Eastwood STP. John told me that is when he got the urge to join the HWP.
Great man! Rest In Peace John. Thank you for your service.
