All different mags and books, even some ancient old photocopies of reviews I got once from the local vintage car club years and years ago (they had a bookstand with old mags on it so asked to copy them :))

Pajero LWB Wagon, Power/economy what's that ???
Don't forget the Nikki, I believe it took just on 50 seconds 0-100 with a top speed of 112kmh or had you planned to post the details on this rocketship later. It was Officially the slowest car ever tested by either Wheels or Modern Motor, can't remember which.

My memory is not as bad as I thought as my recollection is very close for a lot of the figures listed.

My brother had a VK charger with the 265. It was a beast... Literally. Now he's got a VF Coupe (same model as Paulie's from Fat Pizza but with better paintwork). It sounds like the General Lee. 351 Bored and stroked Hemi. It's a weapon. I'm quite fond of the old Chryslers.

Nothing tops a Holden though!

351 is ford.. would either be a 318 or 360 or maybe even a 340. although there isn't all that many 340's around. or do you mean a 318 bored and stroked. i love my old vals. me and my old man have a heap of them.. ya can get a bit out of the 360 with the stroker cranks. i forget what they go out to now. but a bloke i bought my charger off had a really old ute and had a stroked 360 in it. it was nuts..

rightio.. that would be cool...if that is the case ya stroker crank may fit into a 318 as they share the same stroke as a 340. i might have to look into that...
sounds like a tuff car anyway..
