  • Old Holdens

    I couldn't find an old thread to post in but here's a couple of pics of my little torana. It never gets any use unfortunately but I started it on the weekend after 9 months & gave it a birthday

    I had an LC 4dr 161 3sp column shift manual many years ago. Had a hotdog muffler. I grafted an LJ GTR dash (From West Ryde auto wrecker on Victoria Rd) into it. The connectors were different.

    Your GTR is much nicer.

                  at 16 yrs old - early 1980s - I wanted a gtr xu1 but knew nothing about them!!! saw the light
                  quickly and my first car was a mk 1 esky p/van ex show car for $1500 in 1984!!!

                  my son jumped ship to holden some yrs ago and was keen on them for a bit too - now he drives

                  nearly bought geezas 4 door project with a 2 door body shell and spares but he want too much coin.
                  don't forget willo geeza still got the hot up parts left to sell cheap - bongo knows where the parts are.

                  I also got a soft spot for the ta and hb torries - 4 bangers with opel engines but still cooollll man!!!

                        bullarabs - nice 2 door you got there cuz. theres an old chick up the road from my joint with a pink 2 door shes had from the 1980s that I can remember.
                        I bet every man and his dog has asked her if she wants to sell and she must tell them to f off. she got the sprintmaster wheels like yours but I like willos
                        stock wheel with wheel trim look the best.

                        I gotta good old book on Bathurst race cars which discusses the lc and lj torries. lc a far better race car with the 186 as opposed to the lj with the 202 out to
                        208. I agree as those 186s can scream when you give them some lovin. they gave the ford 351 gts a good run for there money!!!

                        they got a gtr and xu1 club here in perth and they are a nice bunch of guys and girls - met some of them before at car shows over the last 25 yrs +

                        pity the supercar scare killed off the xu2 (lj torrie with a 308 in it - shit yeah!!!) it also killed off the phase 4 xa gt and the Chrysler mob were going to a v8
                        in the might valiant too. what a Bathurst race that would have been!!!!

                        I played a shit load of indoor cricket in the 80s and a mate of a mate had a 2 door with a 253/trimatic box. that thing went like stink but bugger all brakes!!!
                        I was bogging around in a hot Gemini but sold that and bought the love of my life - a genuine ford xw gs sdn.

                        rgds g man - muscle car mad!!!

                          Hey Gav, lj xu1's came out with sprints same as bullarabs . Lc gtr & xu1's were same as mine. Your lady friend may have a strike me pink xu1 by the sounds, quite rare not too many came out in this colour.
