Since i got sick of all the work on the VK, I thought id get another car.
This one came up on the market last week, On the side of the road, with a big For Sale sign in the window, I would have walked past if it didnt have the word Manual in big writing..
Talked it over with my parents, and surprisingly they said i can have it.

that is one clean vp!!! looks great!
My current ride: 1993 Holden VR Commodore Acclaim Sedan
keen to see mroe interior pix
be it stock or not lol, i love seein inside em
VN-P are my all time fav cars :P
good work mate. thats a good first car in my opinion. i had one with same engine and box combo in my vr. lol that had so many random bits from different cars but thats beside the point lol.
im not sure if i like the spoiler. it looks better than most. and another question one muffler or two? if its one i bet it sounds mint!
thats not a cold air intake in that pic too mate. i like the foggies. but youll definitely need to get some whiter globes in them!
cant wait to see you out on a cruise aye ! keep up the good work
Nice one dude! Would feel like a hugh upgrade from the VK!! I had a VP 5sp 5L for a few years and loved it!! Enjoy.
There are 2 types of pedestrians, the quick and the dead
Check out my ride here....
Yeah, TVR told me thats the stock intake, I really want white globes in the foggies, so then when i get pulled up i can say that they are driving lights..
Yeah, be keen to see your car on the cruise, be it the ute or the caprice..
Crunches into reverse occasionally when cold... Not too bad though..
Paid rego thismorning, so that is all sorted, buying a brand new VN bulge on ebay in white tonight if i win, mum said she'll buy me some tyres for the ceptors on friday so it is basically a decision whether to run with ceptors or my crappy rims on the cruise, probably the crappy rims as my ceptors need new nuts and a new cap, so im gonna splurge out and get chrome caps
LMAO at troy helping to install a gearbox.
are you bringing this on the cruise on saturday?
try going for 5th before reverse. this sometimes helped with my vr when it was cold.
Troy, if your listening ill give you a case to change my 'box.
Yeah, paid rego today so itll be there, giving it a wash & polish on friday.
Havent decided on what wheels to take there though, probably my shitty 16" clubby replica's.
Thanks, ill try that out, what usually works is clutch out, clutch in, gearstick as far left in neutral as possibly and then slowly into reverse.
You bringing the ute or the caprice..
In other news, since seeing a white VP with the exact same stuff as mine, except he has 17" VR clubby replica's and a bonnet bulge.. I bought a bonnet bulge because i think it quite suits that VP up the road, so it should mine.. LOL
Bulge cost me $50, he says it is brand new, and it is in my colour which is a win...
Nice jack, but your not aloud to put all these VN parts on it its not a VN
With reverse its proberly normal, ill take a look next time if you want. But ive had my gearboxed recoed for $900 but got quoted for $500 recently.
