Nah it probably is a NSW registered car.

Good to know our national database for stolen cars is working though!!!

Taken yesterday as she heads to her new home for the next few weeks.



Specs are in Commodore Crazy 25 and Holden Performance 1.

She started her life as a BT1 and went to HDT under Collorafi in 1989/90 for the complete HDT treatment and outsourced the intercooler work to Phil Ward.

Done 90,000 genuine kms.

Ran a 10 sec at Oran Park.

Some of the parts (eg. Spot lights and Steering wheel), I located in Japan and the USA. Used as much NOS as possible and paid premium for some parts. Some parts came from New Zealand, VIC, Queensland and NSW and even from up in Geraldton.

I don't want to add up how much it's all cost me.

I've been restoring her now for 4 years. Now I'm trying to fix what name deleted screwed up with my trims and wiring. (If you want to know who screwed it up and what a bunch of cowboys they are then PM me as ADMIN has deleted the name of the company - Alternatively, if you're a member of BROCKCOMMODORES, you can see the substandard workmanship / pictures and naming and shaming of this company that takes your money, promises you the world, then don't deliver)

At this time, I'm embarrassed to show you pics of the interior as they took a HDT interior and messed it up. I was lucky that I managed to purchase the last of the Group A velour from HDT (there is no more) to rectify the mess that *Bleep* Car Stereo (Morley and Cannington) made of my interior. I hate them for everything they put me through emotionally and financially. I'm also certain they substituted some parts on my car given the car was with them for 3 months whilst I was overseas and they received the car from Sydney after I purchased it to do work on it whilst I was overseas. No proof except comparing pictures of the car interior when she was in Sydney versus those taken after I picked her up when this mob had supposedly finished doing work on it whilst I was away. Every part looked brand spanking new in the pics from Sydney. Then when I picked her up from this mob, I noticed the difference in things like seat belt buckles and centre console - They definitely had been replaced. Couple of blokes who worked there with VLs.

All fixed now and I put it behind me but I will warn anyone of this mob if they wish to PM me.


BTW: If you're in Perth you should see her in MOTORVATION 09.

We suspected the car was being driven by a 17 year old in the Morley area back in 2004 as it had "P" Plates on them. It was spotted a couple of times around Morley Senior High after school but no one could give chase. I contacted the school but no response.

Since then it's been spotted but impossible to work out a schedule or routine to stake out.

Let's be reasonable about this, how many factory 5 speed Calais are there in Encumbine Blue left in Perth WA? I wish I had a friend who was a cop that could do the research for me on that one. There wouldn't be many. AND I could probably narrow that search down to various suburbs where she has been seen the most as well.

Difficult given I live in London and only see my car and Australia for maybe 4-6 weeks a year. Hence why *Bleep* Car Stereo was able to screw me over without any hesitation or comeback. Bloody difficult to take action when you're so far away and one store blames the other store for things going missing or screwups.

I have an old school friend in Perth who's a Senior S in the force I just realised. Might have a chat with her when I'm back next in a couple of weeks.

There's still a $1000 reward for her recovery if anyone has any info.

Still tossing up what to do for a deck. Decide what to do in a few weeks. The brief I have is to 'stay true' to what HDT would have brought out hence things can't be too over the top - boot included.

The deck has to sit right in the dash and look like it belongs there and not protrude or be able to be lifted out. Seen some decks on peoples cars that just don't look right or have been badly fitted. Make up my mind in a few weeks when I'm back in Oz

Not ready to release the under bonnet pictures yet. I'll post them when the time is right. Same goes for the interior. Must fix what *BLEEP* Car Stereo did before I'm happy to release pics.

Thought this looked familiar. One of my old time faves. Well done!

No it didn't. My old car had a grey velour scheel setup front and back with headrests on the rear seat except there was no pull down arm. Door trims are standard calais grey velour.

No mate - she has been seen from time to time BUT no one has been able to tail her and get the current rego. It's been a few years now and I'm certain she hasn't been pulled to bits.
