    had this car 2 years i bought it with a cam, head work, stage 2 shift kitted trans, 10 bolt open wheeler diff (260 ratio GAY) genie extractors, 2.5 inch exhuast, retrimmed interior, **** stereo and **** suspension,chrome rocker covers and air cleaner and it was defected with 249,500ks . in this time ive had it regency approved, crashed it fixed it, fitted vt clubby wheels, new stereo not to flashy, two way immobiliser, all new front end nolathane bushes and camber adjusters, new pedders springs all round rears stage 1 lowered sports ryders fronts standard height heavy duty springs, new front kyb gas shocks new front end bearings new vl turbo calipers, new vl turbo slotted rotors, rebuilt rochester carby, rebuilt vl turbo 345 ratio lsd diff, a pedders panhard rod, new rear and front pads, brock grille, and some foglights, and painted the mirrors black
    so that whats done to it heres what i have planned not sure about the foggies thoe think they ruin the look might have to be removed also it now has 250,000ks on it not bad in my opinion now has trimatic just rebuilt with 2000 higher stall converter and softer servo spring with stage 2 shift kit
