Finally have got another FC, picked it up yesterday, many thanks to Fred the Legend from Townsville for hanging onto the car for me until I could pay for it and JB for putting me onto it Smiley




Now to clean it up and get it on the road, first things first tho - get rid of those horrible wheel trims....

G'day Neil,

Thanks mate, will get some more details up here when I get organised.

Been reading through the WA engineering report, very detailed and very good.  I drove it back from Melbourne on Thursday and it ran really well, the V6 has plenty of get up and go, sits on the road well, non-power rack will take a bit of getting used to again tho.

Will get some details and more photo's up as I start doing the clean up Smiley

Cheers, Graeme

Are you going to add another 2 cylinders/1.2 litres, Graeme  Huh

Surely no caps are better than those Supercheap specials.

Will you keep the painted bumpers?

Great purchase btw  Cool

G'day Josh,

Not sure on the bumpers yet but think I will go back to chrome. V6 goes very well so I will leave it as is for the time being..... Wink

You are right about the no caps looking better than those wheel trims - I can't even give them away lol.

Got a few changes in mind but for now I will just get it ready for rego and enjoy driving it Smiley

Cheers, Graeme

Very nice buy Graeme.

There is a pretty sweet looking intercooled supercharged L67 v6 on Gumtree atm. Out of a Torana so set up to suit early Holden. Then again hub caps sound like a higher priority.

If the bumpers were just etch primed and painted maybe you can bring them back to chrome. Then again why would someone paint them if the chrome was good?

Anyway some fun ahead.
Cheers
Clay
