    Since i got sick of all the work on the VK, I thought id get another car.

    This one came up on the market last week, On the side of the road, with a big For Sale sign in the window, I would have walked past if it didnt have the word Manual in big writing..

    Talked it over with my parents, and surprisingly they said i can have it.

    Here goes:

    It is basically a stock interior, with Jim Beam racing seat covers on the front (Came with the car), a headunit, VS speaker pods, a shitload of holdne badges (Dont ask why) and a MOMO steering wheel
    huh?? No they arent, if you want huge pics look at chopa's un-re-sized VH pics

    good work mate. thats a good first car in my opinion. i had one with same engine and box combo in my vr. lol that had so many random bits from different cars but thats beside the point lol.

    im not sure if i like the spoiler. it looks better than most. and another question one muffler or two? if its one i bet it sounds mint!

    thats not a cold air intake in that pic too mate. i like the foggies. but youll definitely need to get some whiter globes in them!

    cant wait to see you out on a cruise aye ! keep up the good work

    OK, maybe soon
    Yeah, im not too sure about the spoiler, id like a VNSS one personally

    Yeah, TVR told me thats the stock intake, I really want white globes in the foggies, so then when i get pulled up i can say that they are driving lights..

    Yeah, be keen to see your car on the cruise, be it the ute or the caprice..

    Cheers mate
    Thanks mate.. Yeah, its a big upgrade.

    Crunches into reverse occasionally when cold... Not too bad though..

    Paid rego thismorning, so that is all sorted, buying a brand new VN bulge on ebay in white tonight if i win, mum said she'll buy me some tyres for the ceptors on friday so it is basically a decision whether to run with ceptors or my crappy rims on the cruise, probably the crappy rims as my ceptors need new nuts and a new cap, so im gonna splurge out and get chrome caps :D
