    The "What the fuck am I doing" Kingswood

    I just don't fucking know anymore, you said no more, you have projects ffs... "Nothing but the VL" , you have a 26 van to get on the road for a cruiser, dead set wanker mate!


    Bought this, not sure why, maybe it's a mid life thing and I'm trying to re-live/redo my youth..... came up reasonably cheap (in todays market)

    Seems actually a solid base, honest kinda thing, rough though, fuck me dead....

    These pics are from the sellers ad, has some rust in usual places, tailgate is half rooted, floors seem solid, runs on 5 cyl, was painted with a beaver spray gun about 10 years ago, paint looks/feels like about 80grit sandpaper, it's super dark green, I hate Green, I hate Green cars... seems like a good idea right?

    Original 202, 3spd column shift manual, all the original hubcaps and mudflaps, so cool right? still dunno why I bought it or wtf I'm going to do with it, Lands here this arvo some time...

    That is fucking ugly. I like it!

    Used to have a HJ ute. Never could get used to the speedo design.

    I like spraying beaver.

    I think you might have a problem.
    Rust is lighter than carbon fibre.

    Looks sketchy just add crazy Barra or turbo'd big block chev.
    an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

    Nah, Think I'll keep it a stocker, lower it and send it, paints farked, cruise it for a while, over doing conversions and shit,

    I was looking at Toyota 1FZ motors before, might be cool, small turbo like gt42 or so....


    It arrived, much more Green than I thought, although look black in the shadows through my phoneography





    Paints rooted...




    Rust isn't overly fucked, seems pretty decent really, I thought bottoms of doors, 1/4's etc would be gone but they are solid, this is the bad parts, drivers floor pan is good, passenger floor has a spot, rest is not bad in bottoms of guards and rear 1/4's, tailgate is fucked on the inside,










    Broken tail light even came with a replacement!






    Extractors, Cain manifold and a Webber carby, pretty serious kind of mods going on, intimidating... power will be off chops once its on all 6 cylinders again....




    Interesting.....

    Worst car I ever owned was a hx wagon. I dumped it on its guts and put my old 4.3 stroker V6 in. Spent more time on a tow truck than on the road. Cunt was full of rust and bog and even more rust. Wiring was full of smoke. Flexplate worked loose abouta5 times. Sold it to a P player who fucked it the first day, then tried to sue me. Work of the devil

    mate of mine and his 2 brothers did this to their mums Toyota crown 20 odd years ago and took it to easternats. even went to the trouble of getting a sticker for the rear window that said

    "WITHOUT MUMS CONSENT"

    she wasn't too happy when she saw the car

    Comp test is good, actually, really good! 175, set of new plugs, play with the Webber and it runs like a fucken charm!! A mate knows a guy who has been looking for one of these for a variety bash car, if he makes the right offer he can take it, otherwise, it'll be on the road on club rego this week and I'll drive it around for a while

    The price of just about any old Holden etc are starting to go through the roof, It's getting a bit outrageous really

    Fitted the supplied tail light, held off on spending more money in case this guy wants it but i think I'll just do shit anyway, kinda keen to drive the old rig,the rear window was binding up and couldnt go up or down properly, there was a 3 inch long bit of metal on the rail that holds the glass that had rusted and bent up and was binding up in the tailgate, I cut it off and shits mint lol

    Bought this a new battery, dizzy cap and some rego today, hosed it off and sent it up the road to visit a mate, holy fucken body roll! shocks aren't fantastic lol, but okish, kinda forgot how the old things drive, did enjoy the absolute lack of power though, blew a cloud of brown shit out first time under load in top cog, was cool rowing through all 3 gears on the column.. has 3 offers for this already for fucks sake, and I've barely even told people I have it, fuck its rough to look at though....

    Alloy headed big block with twin turbos stolen off the nearest D9 Cat is surely the answer to the question nobody asked.
