TOW PIG
So last week i sold my VR ute (tow pig), i kinda got bored with it and wanted a cruiser so i bought a VS series 2 Statesman.

Sold ute for $5600 (NZ) and picked Statesman up for $4800 (NZ).

It's got low k's, 147,700, and is one of the tidiest i've seen for a loooooong time.
Previous owner has done.

Darkest legal tints
New Key
New Front Rotors and Break Pads
Two new front tyres
Battery one year old
Recently Serviced
Reco'd Air Con
Pioneer stereo with 6 by 9s in the back
17" Mags

List of things to do in the next week,

Find an un-faded and cracked boot garnish (easier said than done me thinks haha)
Clear side indicators.
Find a factory radio.
Find a leather interior.
Get some 18 or 20 inch rims to replace those hideous looking 17s.
Get some springs to stop it looking like a 4WD
That's this week LOL (yeah we'll see)

Anyway, i'll keep updating the thread as i do bits.

Oh, i also may end up painting it because at the mo' it's an almost poo brown colour.

That looks like a tidy pick up man!

Get it some polished VR Caprice rims, and slap them on, after white walls!

Drop it low as man!
(BAG IT!)

Thinking 'bout some "bolt in bags" for the back to start with. Will depend on finding the right (looking) rims, offset of rims and tyre size, which from what i can find out is a mission to get offset and tyre size spot on when dumping the back of Statesmans.

I love the colour, but statesmans look best in white or black imo.

what sort of wheels have you got in mind? holden wheels or aftermarkets? I personally love the look of the VR or VS caprice wheels polished up. they look classy as ####.

Darn, thought they would look 'Super standard' on my 8. oh well, if you change your mind then let me know. I could negotiate with some 15" 'skid mags' if you like, LOL

Got a 60th out the back of some country 2-horse, middle of nowhere, trailer park, hire a house or something.
