This was always a very tidy car when I saw it.

I looked at this car about 4 years ago when it was in Bristol. It was properly rusty, holes in every panel, bits of guards corroded off. It was too much work for me so I walked!

I must have looked from a way off then, or with rose tints!

about 10 years ago this was VIP steves daily
it was tidy enough and solid enough to take him the 15 or so miles to and from work every day, MOTed and maintained as such

he fixed the steering box replaced wheel studs sorted brakes and did some engine work, it was showing some rust bubbles at the rear arch to boot floor wheel tub seam

he sold it when it became obvious it was going to need more time than he had to spend, given his Monaro and new family members


it seems to have gone through a few different people since, whether they maintained it or not i don't know

nice rare car the rear doors are longer than the 4 door vg the roof profile is different and obviously you get the unique VIP front grill and lights

David Gray. This year i am mainly In Twickenham, sometimes in Watford, often between the two but only between the hours of 07:00 -09:00 and 17:30-19:00

that would explain it then, it was a long time ago that I saw it last.
Which Monaro has Steve got, an HQ?

I think its an HQ or HJ but it might be later with an early front it has the pontiac style bootlid/ rear like a 70 71 GTO

i.e not an HK-HT-HG

had it since he was very young and brought it with him to the UK

he had the VIP because he saw it and it was Australian

I need to see that, I can only remember seeing Barry Dancer's black HQ which was in Harpenden and was up for sale.
Still no SLR 5000's over here yet? I want a tribute in Barbados Green.
