Love it i know those plates from some where did you get them from jimie or craig thompson .

Very nice !!! 11sec’s - that’s very, very quick for a road car.

I got em about yr 2000. been on many of mine since.

Looks tuff man - do all the work yourself?

Might generate some interest by posting in the for sale sections on them?(if you havent already)

As nice as it is, its always hard trying to get a decent return on a car like this. Which doesnt really make sense because all the hard work has been done.

Good luck with the sale!

those steering wheels always trip me out!

WOW what a a collection of Holdens you’ve had. Good luck with the sale.

how rad are the vk steering wheels

There’s nothing Rad about VK steering wheels, Citroen where doing them on various models from the 50’s till the late 80’s







Which of the cars was running the 327?

The HQ, then I put it in the Silver HT Premier, then strapped it in the HK Ute & sold it complete about 3 years ago.
was a sweet engine.

mmm, very flexy when launching off the line holding on for dear life.

Good to see someone else on here SERIOUSLY into cars!!!

Shame they arent Ford’s though :wink: :wink:

Good luck with the sale, very tidy car you have there.

And i love all single spoke steering wheels, regardless of which direction the spoke points in ha ha ha

Yeah its the white ute i have seen, nof a remember jimbos plates think he might have had them on his early green lj years ago i loved that thing.
Nice car collection except the t bird but hey i let you off that hahaha but it is a new example.
I used to kick around all the coast car boys like Jimbo, Wal in his wb silver now red ute, Dyaln nice orange q e , blinco kv and that i bought a house couldn’t afford the cars no more.
Long term dream/plan is build a hk.
Nice vk aswell.

Thanks… but my Tbird is a Ford…?

Dayne, You never would have seen the HQ ute on the street with those plates.
You would have seen it on the VE Commodore ute tv commercial being swept away by a tornado.

YouTube - New Holden VE Ute TV Commercial

My plates for it hadnt arrived yet when they needed the ute, so I slapped them on it.

Yeah I used to muk around up there a bit with them & Darren.
