Here she is...Ain't she beautiful?


Model: Series II VL Calais (Mock-Up)
Motor: Carby 5L 304ci
Colour: Herron White over Asteroid Silver


Purchased from Daniel (RBE-747) last month, and after a few hurdles, she is now running like a dream!


What's under the hood:

- Edelbrock Performer Manifold
- 600 Holley Carburetor
- Stage 2 Cam
- Stage 1 Shift Kit
- 3'' Cat-Back Exhaust System (Everlast Mufflers)
- New Lifters

- New Engine Mounts
- New Plugs
- New Leads
- New Coil
- LSD Differential - 3.08:1 Standard Gears

DYNO TESTED - 124rwKw

What I've done:

- New Starter Motor (Bosch, because I'm a genuine mofo)
- New Hoses throughout incl. high pressure hoses (because she wee'd rainbows everywhere)
- New Steering shaft (Previous one was tack-welded to firewall)
- New Number Plates (I like shiny number plates)
- Located replacement centre caps for wheels
- New Tyres

What I plan to do:

- Replace bumpers
- Re-Spray all silver surfaces with a lighter silver
- Chrome Door Handles (Current ones are typical Series II painted matte black)
- Cut & Polish
- New Springs & Lower
- Fix small crack in windscreen (O - O - OOOOOO - O Brien!)
- Install my minted sound system!
- Re-wire eyelid motor
- Replace ignition barrel
- Replace all globes with HID white light globes (Or blue-vision?)
- Steam clean & detail engine bay & under-body
- Install extractors/headers
- Professionally Clean Interior
- Some body modifications (kits, spoilers, scoop etc..Still deciding!)


And NOW...For the Pictures! Very Happy

All Images were taken the day after I purchased her...

No starting issues at all! Had a few issues at first (Just made a click noise) But after Holden installed some ignition relay thing...No problems whatsoever Shocked

Now all I have to work out is how i'm going to replace all the crappy blue & red putty with actual gaskets AND drive the car to and from work on a daily basis! Hmmm...Might get a put-put scooter Razz

Nah forget the putt-putt scooter. Do wat Brad did (he's temporarily lost his licence.....don't do that tho lol) and buy a $50 second hand pushbike and a $220 motor kit off ebay...combine the 2 and u got a motorised pushbike. It's bloody awesome on fuel, does 2.5L/100km and at the moment does 60km/h lol. Don't need a licence either!! He gets quicker to work on the bike then driving haha.
