I notice that the previous owner had pretty good taste when he owned it.. No front bar

But not to be so it wont see the track until next season. The plan at this stage is to get my licensing passes out of the way in September ready to race the Fast Friday series from October. There is also a small list of things i want to do to the car as well to improve it a bit and finish it off to my liking

I did take the wife for a quick spin down the road here at work when we unloaded it last Sunday, and yes, she crapped herself and i was only taking it very easy Got some video of it driving but don't know how to load it on here from the "My Videos" folder i saved it in

Mitch and anyone else are more than welcome to come past for a looksee

oh, almost forgot, here's a YouTube video the last owner in the US made when it left his place for Australia in May 2009

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0mt96r7BOE
I'm not sure I'd be loading any videos of it on the street-you never know who's watching

Is it as straight in the metal as it looks in the vid ?-if so -a very sharp car.The previous owner sounds very particular and obviously has a keen eye for detail.

Well done and ENJOY.Like everyone here I'll be watching with interest when it hits the track

My little road trip just cost me a bit more after receiving a $650 fine in the mail for a red light infringement in Pt Augusta. Those pr!cks in SA sure know how to sting people or was it just because i had a modified LHD muscle car on board and we all know how much there not welcome in SA

After filling out the Stat Dec to say i was the driver i'll end up having to pay $350

Oh yeah they've got all sorts of ways to extract $'s from you in SA
Some of the cameras are combination of red light and speed so they can get you twice in one hit, they've got 2 of these in Pt Augusta. (lucky you weren't speedng as well, not that I am condoning running red lights)

Marty, whose kit is that, actually looks way better than the piece of crap plastic one I got from Classics
