There’s a picture of it a couple pages back.
This could be the car you spotted, it's currently for sale for $10k on FaceBook.

Na is a different one. He purchased it a couple years back when it was advertised on Facebook for $5k. It was a n/a convert and was pretty clean.

I know and we used to work with the owner (Mitsubishi) - he still works for them.

He has a genuine Calais turbo too that has been given a new lease of life with paint from what I’ve heard.

Warning - spotted - dodgy new members

WARNING - I have been checking the profiles of several of the recent members to CT website and found the following things are appearing on each profile.
Strangely they are all from City of Darwin but are actually in Russia and the signature link is a redirect weblink that usually means something dodgy like a scam or fraudulent behavior. Please use caution if these members contact you and don't go to their links. See the screen capture below I have highlighted the dodgy stuff:

Geez you're almost as bad as the spammers :-p

Yes there's heaps, yes its been happening for years, and they're generally dormant, with the occasional spam thread posted which is hidden "unapproved" automatically anyways

Spammers

Hi Steve,
Sorry for the spamming but I wanted to make sure everyone was up to speed with the scammers.

Bye the way....I like your signature line and your avatar symbols ( . Y . )
Good to see some people still not afraid to make some light hearted humour.

Very nice. I remember seeing one the same colour about 18yrs ago at Mitsubishi Tonsley Manufacturing carpark. It was an employee car and it had standard front not calais front, it had VL grp A bonnet and VK brock commodore directional mag wheels powder coated white.

I remember 'Spooler' or 'Spooln' and I worked in the same area as he did and unfortunately one night at around that time (early 2000's) he was boosting on South Rd O'Halloran Hill and drifting between the three lanes (late at night - no traffic around) and he lost control and wiped it out into a tree or something on the side of the road after doing a couple of 360 degree out of control spins. He wanted to know if I wanted to buy the drive train out of his car at that time but my car is a VLC V8 so it was no use to me at the time.
I thought his car was actually a VLC turbo and it was from memory a single tone burgandy colour but I could be getting the two cars you mentioned above mixed up.

I remember there was also an ex cop pale blue VL SL with the dark maroon SV89 VN HSV walkinshaw mags on it in the carpark for several years and I think he sold it to get a Datsun 1600 twin cam turbo street machine for about $28000.

Those were the good old days when many VL's were still on the road as daily drivers [COLOR="Silver"]

Yeah was spoolin. Yep was a normal sl/ Berlina I think. There was a maroon Calais turbo 5 speed at the back too, not very often.

Did you remember another Chris from the service centre and he loved his white Toyota Mr2. Think he was originally an Sydney sider.

You should get premium membership here. Your missing out on another section.

I remember a Chris in Service Centre that had turbo Nissan's (Skylines) and a white VLCT with turbo RB20 engine in it but he never drove them to work. He may have had a MR2 but I'm not sure. He finished up at Mitsi and now works in a drilling job where he helps drill underground to set up bore's on farms etc. I heard that he still has the VLCT.

I am not sure about the membership options on this site. Are they free to upgrade?? My household runs on my income only so we budget the bare minimum of everything that's why my VLC V8 and LJ Torana are not on the road and just sitting in the shed at the moment.

What do the different memberships offer on this site?
Are there any active moderators still on this site?
Seems I joined up too late for this website but I will logon as many days a week as I can.

Not much to miss but lots of old stuff to read through.

Not much action on this site lately but a few of us that probably hate Facebook.

It could be worse, we could be http://www.nissansilvia.com/forums/f...uth-australia/

Blue VL brock replica

This is my edited version of what the Blue VL Brock replica looked like years ago at the Mitsubishi Tonsley Manufacturing employee car park.
TinyPic won't let me log in to host images for website forums as they are closing down so I'm trying a new one tonight called PostImage, lets see if it works:
