      not so - your car still needs to be RWC - and be fairly standard.

      and if your club lets modded cars it would /should be engineered as per any normal full reg car mods requiring an eng cert

      street rods (SR) is slighty different - but its signed by an engineer

      if you in sth australia - you cant even have different wheels (i believe) on historic reg

        The engine even has two extra injectors in the x over pipe. Perfect for dodgy drag cars.

            I think the rules and competition should be kept to a minimum - too many of these budget based competitions are killed by their own rules.

            Make it the "I'm going to spend $1300 and see how fast I can go and you should too" challenge and you are on a winner.

            Valiants must still be heavy though (1400kg??) is the 265 really that good?

              Bluebird mentioned earlier in the thread for $500
              253 from the wreckers i bought for $300
              Rebuilt trimatic i have market value = $800
              Weld diff $0

              $1600. damn. I agree with changing this to a bang for buck formula.

                if someone could get a ca18det for a few hundred and drop it into that $500 bluebird, it would probably piss in 13 secs...

                  Hmm I'm not up on the jap motors so that would be out for me. Plus this 253 I already have. I'm thinking seriously about this bluebird. Would be good to meet some of you cunts as well.

                    VH-VK are a tad more than 1400kg.. CMs are 1510ish!

                    ill be starting with a VG however, which is around 1220ish

                    265s with mild mods are usually good for 13's, however anything better than that can become spendy!

                      yes and no (in victoria anyways)

                      most clubs are alot less strict on rust. the cars still have to be safe though. mild mods are usually ok with the clubs too.

                      * in my case, the VG with 265.. the engine is 10ci larger than the largest 6cyl made for them, and is the same engine family.
                      *they came with 3speed autos from the factory.
                      *they came with borg warmer diffs from the factory, however mine will have 10" drums, 1" larger than factory.
                      *they had optional front discs, ill be using later CM front discs, which have alloy calipers instead of cast iron. clubs in vic wont pick that.
                      *VG pacers had an optional 4BBL inlet from the factory. mines an aftermarket manifold and holley instead of factory carter. no biggie. will mod factory aircleaner to fit it.
                      *will fit 15" falcon rims for the drags (i suspect easier to find slicks to borrow) however for club reg ill run factory hubcaps and 14"s if required.

                      so really, apart from the floorpan rust in my paticular car and shit paint.. i think ill shit in historic reg. daves crown with 7MGTE will need to be inspected with original motor and then converted if he wants historic reg.

                      if they get snippy with me, ill quietly remind them an older member is running a 245 hemi, front discs etc in an old 1950's plymouth cranbrook? on club reg

                            can the original car be quick? I had a look at a moo powered gemi (hilux diff, all running) out near westlakes when me and a mate were thinking of entering mallanats (skidz an shit) advertised for 2200 but the drugfucked bogan was pretty desparate to sell, sms'd "ill take 1600 cash" after i had left. It was certainly a look at how not to live your life.

                            Anyway, if an adelaidian is interested I can give them the dudes number.

                              finalise rules and regs first.

                              im in. depending on how serious this gets, ill need a year

                              id prefer it stay at $1300. makes people be more creative and search harder for bargains. i have a feeling bootloosing sales are going to go through the roof!

                              zoom feature would be cool

And interiors schmick - so you could sell that for $500 which = budget for car is still $1300?? Isn't that how it works??
