Enter the archives

Guys after the HDT picture thread and the original thread have been big hits, I have thought of this vlt picture archive thread.
Now basically in this thread I'm after pics/info/discussion on vlts from yesteryear.
The thought came to me whilst searching through this site for pics of 2 vlts from the past [BNGBUS] the mulberry Calais turbo and [HIJAKT] the red sl turbo not the yellow bt1
If anyone has pics of the above could you please post.
Basically I'm am after pics from pre 2010
This is not so much are where are the now thread more so a picture thread of vlts from the golden day lol.
Post/discuss away
(Ps I can see the majority of vlts with gauges on the bonnet and number plates under headlights lol)

Classic footage! Pretty much has been 10years since you could say the vl scene was at its absolute best in victoria. Will never be as good as then.

In garages or getting built. I've got 3 mates who are all almost finished building their yellow BT1 VLT replicas and should be on the streets shortly.

Love to see whats going on with alot of the melb vls from back then the only one that gets out really these days still is huss's idarya and bes's

Ive got some pics ill chuck up later on my comp, psivlt, jetbt1, gmhpsi, ltsjet, xitenu, flypsi, aprec8, vltbt1, tpscrt etc would be good to see what else people can dig out.

I recently found a cd with all the vids we used to take back then, really average quality, HDTJET, rickym, and all the northern boys pretty much, some good footage!

Good times had back then, when i had my orig vlt sly747 makes me miss it!

Also anyone know what happened to jay (BlackVL) off here, he had a nice build going for years but has vanished off here! Also matty from wangaratta with the candy apple calais STOCK6. What ever happened to that, hands down my fave vl

How I miss when Melbourne had all the fast vl's then the Sydney boys took over and killed the car scene down here. Because let's face it when breshani, PET, Rajab,JPC where all at the track with min of 2 or 3 vls week after week those were the days. I can even remember blokes going home after Calder park then rolling the car off the trailer and driving it down for a quiet dinner at bell maccas lol

Hahaha good old mcmetro
Sly - seriously dude all the cars you mentioned were iconic and I spent half my days at trade school looking at magazine articles on em lol post the pics!!
PANNIC sums it all up for the vl scene - prob the most known car for the time and now it's been apparently sold 5 times, missing driveline, missing the plates etc etc such a shame

What is the street scene for the turbos like these days in Melbourne?

When I lived there in 2001, it was vl turbo town hard core and I loved it.

Melbourne in my opinion still holds some foundation.

The scene is still alive to a point I was out on the night before the public holiday and lots of tuff cars out. But it's all very hide and seek now meeting in small groups in car parks that are that dark you don't know who's there lol.

I miss the days you drive down beach rd and the were cars parked up from from st kilda bp to station pier and the police didn't worry or hassle anyone
