CHILDHOOD memories of driving around paddocks in an FC ute pushed Glenn Profilio to commission Down Town Kustoms in Taree to build him one of his own he could treasure. But while Glenn loved the FC’s old-school looks, he wanted it to drive and feel as if Holden had built it in 2015.
Graeme Brewer and the DTK lads took to this brief with gusto, remaking almost every aspect of a running, driving FC ute and delivering a one-off machine now known as Refined. The aim wasn’t to go troppo with any one aspect, but to have balance and symmetry between ride, power, handling and appearance. Most of all, it had to be practical.
