So far pretty much just a stock 71 LC. besides steering wheel, and i have converted it from column shift auto to floor shift auto.

have plans for it to go faster soon and will slowely make it look nicer and fix the small things like, seats and interior carpet etc.. get some mags.

have got a WW Stromberg 186s twin barrel carby
Genie Extractors (cleaned degreased and resprayed black)
Yella Terra Head (polished new valves and springs)(to be put on)

Future Upgrades:
Medium Crow Cam
Stage II Shift Kit / or man conversion

the exterior pics were taken after picking it up and driving it back to SA, so dont have the new plates on it yet..

Nice looking ride - make sure you look after it. When its time to get a new car, if you can afford it try to to put this one away rather than trade. You'll find it's a nice change to have a car that keeps it value.
Try to find a console for the shifter and stereo. Will look heaps better.

thanks guys..
and yes Kevin i am currently in the process of designing one with some help from this guy:

Board Message

who has built his all himself but above the cd player will have some guages and will try and make it look older to suit the car.

and the only way i will sell or trade this is for a LC GTR, but other than that plan on keeping it for a very long time :)

Updates

Put extractors on, on Mon took a hour or so, after ripping all the the old system off.
drove to the exhaust shop wed morning at 8am with just extractors :p was fun lol
had a 2.1/4" made up from there back with a RedBack performance muffler at rear.

Looks good and sounds awsome.
