    Hey there,

    I thought I would post some pics of my ride...

    Completely stock at the moment....

    Plans for the future:

    355 stroker
    Strengthen driveline to cope with the extra power
    Custom Car Audio install
    New Paint, Leaving the stock rims on it as I love them.
    Smoothing and hiding wires in the engine bay....

    Thanx for the likes mantaray56 and ducker85 and for making the pic larger.. lol :)

    It is still stock, plans are still in the works, she is my everyday driver atm.
    I am in the process of painting another car, as soon as that is finished I will be taking the senator off the road and will then start on all the plans i mentioned originally.

    It will be a slow road but I will get there in the end, I am in no rush.

    I will start a build log as soon as everything commences so stay tuned.

    Cheers

    Lol.... I wish it was that way... thats the reason why i need to hurry up and get my other car on the road and take the senator off the road... I have owned it now for 7 years and its been the most reliable car i have ever owned....

    Clean !!!!

    Makes a nice weekender mate, leave it original there isn't many around as is , so would be good to have a clean example like this.

    Definately following this thread mate.

    Thanx for the compliments BrokWoods, she definitely needs a respray though the ol paint is getting tired and needs to be freshened up.

    Cheers
