VR 5.0 Ute & a 4runner with a VS SS trasplant
Just thought id post up my ride and also the cruise car my mate Gary built for the Summernats.












[EDIT]
Oh and I know its not a Holden but I figure you would be interested in what a Hiace Van looks like when its rolled into a ditch then hitting a tree.. I walked away from this acco with only a little mark the Doctor thought was a pimple...









One would think that someone is looking out for me.....

Yea lucky is an understatment... The convertable was writen off due to exsesive hail damage, so the only thing worth keeping was the injected 304 and the Auto box.

Gary had always wanted a car to belt around the Summernats in so thats what ended up being made with a few cutting disks and some mig wire about 100 tubes of sikaflex and some left over paint....
