Hi guys, My name is John Morris, I have been a lurker on this site for a while and have decided to sign up. I am 53 years old and my home base is Mount Gambier, South Australia, but I work on oil rigs so I am only home about every 8 weeks. I was just home this weekend gone and went and had a look at the new event the local street Machine Club has put on. It was a real blast I haven't had such a good time in ages, some good cars and good events, streets ahead of their old show, a little pricey to get in but that would be insurance shit I suppose. It does need a tidy up in a few spots but I suppose its a new learing curve.
I have a number of Cars but my Commodore is a Mandarin Red VH SLX. It is running a black motor with a TO4 airesearch Turbo, Forged Blower Pistons, Starfire Rods , steel crank, yella terra head with roller rockers (a bit hard to get now apparently), balanced, wade high lift cam with roller lifters, lukey tune length extractors, straight cut gears and nitrous.
I am currently running twin 21/2 Stromberg CDs but will convert to Hall tech Injection shortly. I have just fitted a manualised Turbo 700 which was not as easy as I thought it would be, just need to make up a tailshaft when time permits. My diff is different it is a Dana twin grip out of a V8 AMC AMX tough as and the right width (wrong bolt pattern but that was easily changed. Car is lowered 3 inches and wears 16 x 8 Bathusrts Globes. Interior is VK Calais leather. I hope to have it on the road this year depending on workload. I'll post some pics when I work out how to do it. I have to start packing Thursday I'm heading back to the Vietnam Coast for 8 weeks, but will post from time to time, we have internet but limited time per user.
Catch you soon
