    Those that have been on here a while will remember Dm4n's VT Cadburymobile. Stumbled across it in my travels today as it appears to have come to Melbourne.

    :eek: The world is seriously and irreversibly f@$#ed up!
    Bears live in rubbish dumps and one country closes down another country's last car manufacturer so it can make more money from its own factories while that country stands and watches pretending that's ok.
    Yes it's really fucked up. The bears could always live in the Holden plant I suppose.

    Meanwhile my VE gained 10hp by replacing the front coolant o rings, go figure:confused:

    Might have something to do with achieving a proper seal on the VIM gasket this time or the contact cleaner on the throttle plug but hell yeah, most powerful $20 o rings I've ever used

    Just added 'Territory' to my 'Members Ride', it being a SY2 Ghia bought new in 2010.
    I was reluctant to do this before, but now, I think that anyone who has an Aussie built vehicle, be it Red, Blue or Tojo, should feel proud about it, and forget the rivalries and insults of the past.

    Yesterday while on my regular treadly ride I saw a Holden ute, can't remember if it was a VE or VF but it was the paint colour that caught my eye.
    Not quite black, and as it traveled along the road, I see it was actually a very dark green colour, then from a different angle it looked almost dark purple - but not quite black.
    It was very alluring.

    The ute looked factory though, didn't notice any custom mods

    I know right, I have a bike on the mainland that I need to spend 1000 1500 bucks on to get it ready for the track but wife wants me to finish building the house. I reckon I can do both as well as mod the ute....

    Mental note, DO NOT lean over running engine on ute to listen for noises while wearing a scarf..... Next time a sore neck might be the least of your worries.....:eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

    Sounds like the time my mate was using a big bench mounted disc sander in a woolen jumper. HAHAHAHA, ended up with a grazed arm, one long sleeve and one short one!

    I remember when I live in SA and I was sitting on the shed floor using a 4" grinder and wire wheel. I was wearing tracky dacks and the brush wrapped around the crutch of my trackies and nearly took out my pecker and ball bag. :oops::oops::oops:
