|in light of the other thread about cars and capability, I'm curious as to what cars have been favourites and owned by us...
for me there are a few, and I've always tinkered with them a bit.
start to finish my favourite cars (in no partic order) owned were as follows:
mini, '66. dumped suspension, worked motor and honda 650 megaphones for a split system
HK Monaro. Worked 186. yella terra head, saginaw GB.
HJ Sandman (errrgh) 253V8
Falcon XA Panel Van. Leyland P-76 Alloy V8, Offenhauser intake off a Buick, Holley 650 dbls.
Falcon XT. Worked 302, dumped suspension
Falcon XW GT. Worked 351 2 barrel
Falcon XY GTHO.
XY Wagon. 351 4bl. Modified Geelong Block (the best of all the Ford small block V8's)
Falcon XA 2 door. Orig motor replaced with a worked 221. Cast exhaust manifold cut and replaced with a ported and rippled mod. Holley 650 dbl pumper. custom XU-1 grind on the cam, solids. it was almost undriveable at idle. the cam used to make it bump and grind a bit at the lights. never ran official times on it, but I once cleaned up a mates Transit that had a modified 406 and FMX installed.
Toyota Dyna twin cab. mid mounted 351, ZF gear box from a busted Pantera. I used to run it at the Darwin Drags out at McDonnel Air Strip. Ran low 13's.
76 Range Rover. 351 windsor 4bl. C6 with a shift kit. Dual fuel. Currently sitting in shed in the middle of a rebuild.
2000 Mercedes Vito. Chipped and lowered 3" by factory. AFAIK its the only factory lowered Vito registered. It handles like a big fat mini cooper S - and will out corner quite a few of the rice burner boy racer pretenders.
I had a couple of show cars in my early 20's during my brain fart stage.
I've had 2 bikes. A Honda 300 Dream (weighed as much as a BSA 650 Thunderbolt!) and a Suzuki GTR Ramair. The Sook is in the mangroves off of Nightcliff as a legacy of exuberant but totally skill-less riding during a "Hungi". ;)
