hi all,

got a phone call from a friend from narrabri saying he,d found a torana,we swap bits and peices,he collects petrol signs and bowsers and me holdens,i have a sign he wants and he a torana,so i load up my car and leave at 6am and in narrabri by 745am,unload sign and go and collect car, he said it was very rough but no rust holes.

after i got home at 12 midday it was time to put on guards and make it look like a car as my kids are sick off me bringing cars home, so i put on guards ,front appron and cleaned it up,went and hid when cath went to pic girls up from school ,and guess what i havn,t heard a thing,i guess it blends in with all the other shit.

the car hardly has a rust hole anywhere but is a shit box,hl engine, s torana,spoilers ,99,998kls on clock,i think with a strip back it would be a great start for someone.

heres some pics of my day out ,i had fun anyway in our glourios outback on my day off.

the other kingswoods are around the back with the other shitters,

see the LJ, we had a mid mounted 350chev turbo 350 and 10 years ago blasted up and down the dirt roads out here,but as usual we got more police in the area and can,t play that anymore, so yanked the running gear,and kept the good bit,exept the big hole in cab where engine was.
