what should i do????

Hi Everyone,

I am looking to buy a Vh Commodore. I have come across one on ebay, very cheap which could very well mean its crap.

here is the url http://cgi.ebay.com....

the pic is bad and you can see damage over the front LH wheel arch. But i cant tell if all the paint is dodgy, like a bad enamel job or something.

I asked the seller a question on sunday, address etc but still no reply. What does everyone think?

Im tempted to bid then just go and see it when he asks for the cash???? And it has a black motor. I wasnt aware tha

shipping a car interstate

I'm currently looking at a few options to ship a car interstate. It isnt registered and isnt running, (no motor or box). If someone has done this before any recommendations as to a company and how the whole thing went, and most importantly did the car arrive safely ?
If not it'll be a tandem trailer behind the VS V6 ute. 10hrs each way. Longer on the return due to towing.

Thanks.

Fuel Consumption

Hi,

Can someone please give me some idea of the fuel consumption of a 308, and how much different it is on gas??

Ive got a HQ sedan with a stock 202 and i use aprox 17L/100k both city + hwy - but im thinking of getting a panel van, preferably with a 308 but im not sure how much more its going to cost me for fuel. Most of the ones I have been looking at are on gas, so i assume this will help to keep the cost down.

Thanks

SAM

An alternative view on the CRS saga

OK well there have been plenty of negative comments in regards to CRS but think where the modified car scene would be today if it hadn't been for Rod Hadfield? Rod's engineering expertise has given us all sorts of innovative bits and pieces for our old holdens, allowing gearbox, engine and diff swaps, a lower stance while retaining full suspension travel and dual circuit braking products among many others. Yes he definitely can be a bit shirty sometimes but imagine how many time wasters the bloke gets? We'd all probably get pissed off if we had 15 year olds ringing up asking if they can put a 454 in their gemini for under a grand!

i thought the vn series 1 gearbox was not supost to have an electric speedo?

hey guys im in abit of trouble, ive been looking to put a turbo 700 into my hg kingswood, behind my 186 red... outta a vn commodore... i was told that the series 1 vn turbo 700 had a speedo cable, but i went out and had a look at a few today and they looked to be electric...well at least they had an electric looking wiring harness coming outta the sump where i'd expect a gear box cable to run from... i cant afford to make the mistake of buying the right box because the adaptor to use an elcetric speedo setup is an extra $725...
