Hi guys
im looking to start a project car (long term) with my uncle, and id like some help in picking a car.
First off it will not be a VL, i was thinking from the H's, and idk if i want to go a sedan, ute or one tonne.
Give us your thoughts. It will be more of a modernisation than a restoriation
Cheers Jonesy

Oh and what should i be looking for when buying one, and what sorta price should i be looking at?

depends on just how big a project. sandman with station wagon back door section added in the middle and a lazy axle for an extra long six wheeled 4 doored sandman?
A HZ GTS would make a choice project if you can find a good one.

if you do a sandman, you can go wild with the number of bodykits that were available for them. A monza front end would still look modern today, and you used to be able to get monza kits in flipfronts too..

im thinking a prem, stato or a one tonne, im leaning towards a one tonne
Things id like to do,
LS1
Supercharger
5 speed auto gear box, with shifter kit or tiptronic
if a one tonne wood deck
Twin 3" full Exhaust
Hidden sound system
some 17" old school wheels
It'll be a modern classic

Its gonna take a long time, and alot of money, but it will be a bonding experience and will be allowed to drive it when im off my p's
