Well I'm back with another mid life crisis, I vowed that I would never re build a car from scratch again after lucky the lime green GTR.
So i after such a shit week at work and looking after some other under performing staff decided that I needed a race track fix or some sort, the race bike was up for sale. It's been a long held dream to go car racing in some sort.
I used to live at Camden and could hear the Oran park car races from home on a quiet Sunday arvo around 3-5 pm . I was always a bike racer and not cars.and have raced at Oran park.
So with a big case of the shits with work entered Tour Targa in the high country in November 2014, I was going to punt the GTR around and this was a very real option.
With the bike up for sale and this car up for sale the cards fell within two days of each other.
thank you to Daz and Kaz of vic who went to see the car and give me a heads up on the quality of the car and it's appearance.
I cannot work out weather is salamanca or rally red , but who gives a F#$%K , it's red of some sort and presentable
It's been a track car and has no rust three tags and no oil leaks and anyone who has bought a torana will realise that this is worth an extra 4000k on it's own.
So my intention in to go , regularity, super sprint's , tack days , and put onto historic rego. and just enjoy the experience of tinkering with torana's
With out further ado we now have another torana S 2 door coupe " rocket " , these pics are from the day we picked it up last weekend and the trip home.
I'll just keep you posted with our adventures and fixes to the car, the motor seems strong and it's running a celica box with a welded diff. first port of call is getting ready for Targa tour
