Hey nicksvl.

I really like your car.

VL's in Kimberley Bronze look awesome (My first car was one of these).

Your's looks in great condition as well. The Berlina taillights look great and the rims suit it as well (albeit a little high) IMO they look much better than the usual chasers and slammed look.

I still have mine in pieces under the house. Going to restore it to factory in the near future hopefully. Just trying to source all the parts.


Best of Luck with it.

-Mark

If you're heading down the path of a twin cam head it might be worth while heading down to your local wreakers and picking up a spare rb30. because to get every little bit of HP out of the new head its well worth installing a set of rb25 pistons.

On the other hand if you leave it alone, its absolutly perfect comp for a turbo conversion!

Bit of an odd rule, in VIC you can pretty much put it anywhere others can see it.

since when? I had my Ps in the windows for all 3 years and never got done for it.

As I recall it was against the law, then to prevent them 'falling off ' the RTA said they could be displayed in the corner of the windshield, inside the cabin.

the laws might have been changed back though, Ive been off green Ps for about 2 years now.
