Haven't been here in a while, but I picked this up a few months ago.



Not much to look at, but the body is good and has this hiding under the bonnet...


Mild 308, m20, and bango out the back. Haven't broken anything yet...
It's a fun car.

That things awesome, I say leave the paint and drive it as is. Gives great character :p

Do you plan to upgrade the diff or just wait and see how it holds up?

That's a nice little sleeper you got yourself there, only giveaway is the twin tips on the tailpipe
Steelies on it gives it a stock/sedate look too, but in a good way, and then you hit the go pedal and it's :surprise:

It's a standard xu1 type muffler. Wheels are volvo stockies, I hate them lol.
It's all engineered and rego'd, was out and about in it today.
I'm ordering a new fuel tank tomorrow as it's a bit rough, and I need to change the starter to a 304 type smaller one as the original hq one is touching the k-frame.
Also plan to upgrade the diff at some stage, as well as a shorter ratio, and chuck in a 5 speed.
But other than that it goes well, it's happy to sit in traffic or cruise the highway. And spins the wheels with no worries haha

Surprisingly sedate, if you go easy on the right foot.
I've driven it in pissing down rain with no dramas.

It's not bad on fuel either.

Na he got me goin a bit quick. First thing he asked was is it modified lol. He got me to pop the bonnet, then took the engineering paperwork back to his car and did his thing.
All was fine on that side of things, which is good to know.
After he gave me the ticket he started asking about the car and telling me he liked it...
