        Ute looks better than most modern HSV efforts.

          I think I attended a drift day at OP once when you were driving, I was driving a little silver KE70. Or it could have been when my mate was driving, we used to share the car. /CSH

            Those early years were NSW drifting in it's prime.

            I recall seeing a WGR VS One-Tonner once, in the same colour, with Momo 20s on it.
            Hell yes. Was some of the best times of my life out there, was just normal dudes having fun. Sadly it's nothing like that today. Full of flat brim cockheads and politics and people trying to win HP hero's.

                Was it a night drift? Was it turbo'd? I do remember going up against a silver KE in one of the regular friday night comps.

                  We took it out a couple of times on a Friday night, never did any competition though. Just had a very tired NA 4AGE.

                    Now back to the ute.
                    With the new VL wagon finished and debuted, the ute was officially retired from drifting. Time to start returning it back into something a bit more respectable.
                    We used to have a rep from Talon bodykits come into work weekly. Talon actually did the original kit for WGR, so i got him to supply me a new front bar for the price of free. Score! He was also rummaging around at Talon and managed to find me a brand new genuine WGR metal bonnet badge hidden in a drawer. Double score! When i first got the ute, the proper bonnet badge had been stolen and was replaced with an HSV one, as well as the engine cover emblem.

                    I found out that another company we dealt with at work, Scope, actually did the original stickers for the WGR cars. And after talking to their rep/fitter i found out they still had the files for all the stickers on their computers. Fuck yeah. The next week i had a full brand new complete sticker kit ready to go on after a respray. (umm respray never happened, and i still have them stored away with my new bonnet badge)


                    Off with the sad old bar





                    And on with the new




                    The new bar fit like a fucking glove! No mods needed except for drilling a couple of mounting holes. Fucking amazing!
                    It stayed in primer for a while, eventually i got around to getting it painted.


                    The mini spooled diff came out and made it's way into the wagon, and was replaced with a standard LSD.
                    And a fresh look with Monaro 18's, wing relocated to local tip, and the troublesome Quig tonneau joining the wing and replaced by a regular hard top.

                    Once again, a good camera hides many sins.




                    It continued on as my daily driver, towing shit, carrying all manner of shit in the tray, generally being used as a ute would.

                    Then came another wheel change to VX GTS 19's





                    Towed the boss's boat. (well i moved it around the workshop anyway. yes i know the jockey wheel is down, the photo was an afterthough as i was unhooking it)

                      Some time later the GTS rims were removed for another VL project. I wanted something new.
                      I came across the ROH Raceline rims. These looked a lot like old V8 Supercar rims.



                      Especially when you paint them white. I also had Scope make me up some WGR stickers for them in the proper WGR font for a personal touch.





                      At this point the ugly sticker fucked VL (wtf was i thinking? I just kept chucking stickers over the shit paint as i got them. God it looked awful) drift car was gone, and in it's place was a 180sx RB20det for skid duties, as well as a new car trailer to lug it around on.





                      And it rocked some 16in B45s for a little while to go with the 15in V5s on the trailer. I have A.D.D.






                      More to come, including whatever pics i find and can be fucked uploading. And the current sad state it's in and future plans....

                            looked great on the VX GTS rims.

                                Yeah looking back now i think so too. I checked on prices on ebay out of curiosity, fuck me dead people want a fortune for them! I sold mine for a grand, repainted and with good tread Pirelli P zeros. Doh!


                                Found more pics of them, shit quality from an early camera phone, but still looks good.
