Torana woes

Well I was on the overpass and must have copped a rock from car in front.

Well the key way in the crank has a small issue, was sloppy, a bit of Loctite and fixed for now, the microtech has a miss in it and need to send it south to get that sorted and the MAP changed so it can handle 22pound.

Without the Mickey Thompsons on it, it's somewhat loose in the back end, but I do love it.....

Next is mini tubs, shortened diff, and a set of Convos I think...... Plus the tune to 22 psi.

Clay

House number 2 Tim???

Yeah I've been looking at some 4wd's, pretty keen on a 4.2 turbo diesel patrol but we'll see what happens.

Started the Torana the other day, sounding good but it smells awesome on e85 :-) I even bleed the brakes so it should stop now. Just waiting on some street tyres and a new windscreen and hopefully getting some "Special"rego for it...

Dean

So ... people that know me well in real life will know that I have gotten the old 60DRB back !!! People that I haven't seen for ages surprise ha ha!

So it must have been fate. I decided on the Saturday arvo that I was going to make a proper effort to sell my turbo stuff as I had given up on ever having another Vl so I logged onto calaisturbo for the first time in months and I had a PM from Mark that I sold the last Blue vl that I had to. He was chasing my turbo stuff that I had for sale. He came around on the Sunday and bought almost all that stuff I had left. Cheers Mate.

Go to work Monday next minute Jr is calling me at work on the work phone I am tripping out as this if definitely something that hasn't happened before and obviously must be urgent. He tells me that my old Vl is for sale. I go have a look and because I had sold my turbo stuff I had the cash to buy the car back. Eliza pretty much made me do it as I would never have the chance to get it back if I didn't get it this time (not to mention she is sick of me whinging ha ha)

So I got the car back sold my cr that was just sitting in the shed and now I have a vl sitting in the yard instead of a motorbike sitting in the shed. I must say I am pretty happy. It had sat for almost a year before I got it back and I got it back for half of what I paid for it. All exactly the same as when I sold it computer and mags etc everything little bit worse for wear but all complete non the less.

Only catch is that I sold all my turbo stuff but if I hadn't have sold my stuff I wouldn't have been able to get the car so works out well

G'day Lads. I sold the Datto 570Z the other day. Very sad. It's gone to a better garage. A bloke at the gold coast bought it to park next to his new 370Z. Half his luck. 4 more years and VL's will be able to get club rego. An LS1 would go nice in one....Hmmmm
