Hey all,

Thought I would show off my ride!

97 S1 VT Calais V8

Bought almost 2 years ago in the below condition:















Had holes in the boot from the removed spoiler, mismatched paint on the bonnet, and dull paint. Still, had very low k's and driveline seemed quite strong :)

Threw the wheels off my old VR on the girl and cruised around for a month or so, till....

...I hit a Wombat which resulted in the below:





While it was in getting repaired, i also had the boot holes filled and resprayed, rear qtr panels resprayed, bonnet fixed and resprayed

Once repaired, looked like this:





And how it currently is:







and with my daily:




New wheels will be the next mod, along with hunting down some S2 chrome interior parts. But otherwise just keeping it as a nice cruiser to use on the weekends :)
