I wonder what it's rated at for towing.

Interesting images tho in the article,
Car has NT plate,
But I think the trailer has a VIC reg plate,
I could be wrong.

I'm going to ruffle some feathers.
But it's just another big single LS,
There's eleventy of these in the USA.
TKM probably does like 20 a day guys, then Texas speed another 20 a day and Frankenstein performance another 20 a day.

I'm not trying to put down these guys, they have achieved a lot more then me, but when you look at the US every man and his dog has a low 9's LS single turbo.

This is why I only look at the N/A stock block guys.

Possibly just enough to pull the skin off a rice pudding.
My mother would take me to school in a HB coupe Brabham edition. I can still remember my old man swearing when working on it.

I had an Aunty in Elizabeth North that had one,
When it was new, they drove it to melbourne and back,
I believe it was only once !!!,
It was lucky to get up the highway to the Eagle on the Hill.:D
(Only Adelonians would know what I’m talking about)

I then it became a shopping trolley,
As they then purchased a bigger car for road trips.

Mate has a HB as a burnout car...Lost count of the decades he has had it

Has had a string of hot Holden 6's

Has had a V6 ecotec and a Barra in it as various stages of it's life.

The current is a hot red 6.....Unfortunately to him being a big fella and driving all his life for a crust, his knees are knackered, so it is extremely difficult for the poor fella to get in and out of it...So it doesn't hit the pad much these days...

Apparently I came home from hospital in one of these after being born.

Safely secured in a basinet on the back seat.
