I thought you had it resprayed because it looks so different in the later pics. Beautiful car. Agree with RATATAK as well. Vinyl roof is awesome.

Change the 10 bolt out for a 12 bolt Marty, you wont break that and the sway bar should be ok

Be gone with you for your disrespect of green. Lol. Sorry I am a tragic green fan, especially anything lime, lina mint HQ's, sublime dodges, lime glaze falcons. Mmmmmmmmmmmm.

Yes, you're right, I was in the café but after waiting 15 minutes and not even getting asked for our order we walked out and around the corner where we were in and out in 20 minutes!!

I went over on the ferry but drove the long way back home to Narre Warren North, it was a great test for my car in the heat and it only went up from normal 78 to 84 degrees.

It was a terrific weekend and I'll definitely be back next year.

Here's a front view of the café that I took Friday arvo next to a mates Camaro

Certainly rides hard and is the perfect height apart from the headers hitting most items on the road which I will fix with new pipes. Holds the road extremely well but I would need to get some better seats with some sides to really run it through its paces.

9" diff has arrived

My 9" diff and 31 spline axles has arrived and I will finally get to feel some decent horsepower when I go from a 3.00 single spinner to 3.70 positrac.

I haven't done any research into that so I let you know how it goes, I'm hoping there will be enough room with the bigger diff.

Yep, I'll be fitting it at Micks place so it made a lot of sense to get one of he's diffs.
