well its been a while since i was on this forum.

i think the last time i was on here was back when i had my supercharged EL GHIA.

i have had a fair few cars since then. so ill quickly run through them all with you as there are some nice ones hiding in there amongst the other e-series ;)


first off. my supercharged EL

Image

which ended up like this :(

Image

and then i got this.

Image

Image

Image

then this...

Image

Image

then to something completely different. a small project car.

Image

Image

Image

which ended up like this.

Image

Image

Image

Image

ultimately ending up like this.

Image

Image

Image

Image

THEN!

i bought this.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

then went the completely opposite way. and bought this.

Image

which ended up like this.

Image

Image

Image

Image

then i got really stupid!! and bought this.


Image

Image

Image

whichhhhhhh ended up!

like this.

Image

STOLEN!


which brings me to my new EL GHIA. i bought this as im back at uni now and needed a reliable daily. shes pretty clean and dont have anything to big planned, but who knows what will happen!

Image

Image

so far i have gone through and replaced most of the ignition system. gone through the cooling system. repainted the rear quarter window seals. polished the living day lights out of it. lowered all round on ultra lows and shortened shocks. clear side repeaters. tickford badges.fairlane grille. removed the pinstriping. and thats about it :)

this is how she stands today.

will likely finish it off with a nice set of wheels and keep on cruising :)

cheers

Stolen 2 days before that image. 1hour police chase through northern suburbs. To my knowledge the powersteering pumped shat itself ending with him collecting a large curb then the FG ended it by ramming the driver door of my VY. Then a 5min wrestle ensued putting both police officers in hospital :| yep he was a nasty bastard.
