400 hwy km run to lunch with the daughter

Seen a few VX VY VZ SS out for a run which was nice

Car is covered in all of the dead bugs

It will only get a quick wash as it is doing the same run next week

It will be filthy by the end of it, which will require a day of therapy (washing/detailing the car) to fix

I spent yesterday driving around the Newcastle and surrounds area 'shopping'. ( Got the Monaro wet.)
After my 'shopping' failures earlier in the week, I started looking for Aussie Holdens and Falcons they are conspicuous by their lack of numbers on the road.
VE/VF are the most numerous, but greatly outnumbered by SUVs and small Koreans. Falcons are rare as.
As for the last of the imitation Holdens .......... ZB, Arcadia, Equinox, Malibu, Astra ...... less than Falcons, .......... nowhere.

Excluding the diehard old fart fans on this forum, methinks Australians have ditched Holden big time as a conveyance, and it has only been 5 years since Commodore and less than 2 years since the final death rattle.

Australians ditched Holden while Holden was still trying to sell cars nobody wanted,.... the small number of diehards excluded because they didnt count to the bean counters :rolleyes:

I live in a small street and quite reguarly there is a tough sounding F250 turning up.....It's in the street for 10 mins max before it's off again.

A few people I know are into the burnout scene, so they blow their cash on their burnout cars, rather than their street cars

I forgot to add what I actually did to the car today.....I decided to check my back fuel filter (I have 2) to see if it is clogged, as I do seem to have a fuel supply issue with my VC....Turns out it did have crap in it, so I ducked down to my local auto parts store and to my surprise they didn't ask a million questions relating to the car....I just dropped my old filter on the counter and asked for a newie.

I was given a choice of a Ryco or a Cooper...The Cooper was $8.00 and the Ryco was $18.00...Being a tight ass, I bought the $8.00 one...Now all I've got to do is fit it up and see if that helps....I also have a new fuel pump ready to fit up, so I'll see if it is a fuel filter issue or fuel pump issue.....

Brake pads arrive tomorrow so I put the right hand calliper back on. Lo and behold sitting sideways was the brake pad I had been looking for. Too bad perhaps I will never use them but at least they were at a very good price. I'm sure I'm not the one on this forum who has parts stashed away that they will never use and might sell one day.

Mate, I have rotors, wiper arms, wiper blades, two or three sets of pads plus some SH parts, stashed in the shed. And that's just parts for my car.
