HELP WITH UC?

I wanna put a 308 in into my UC but I'm not sure what i gotta do. another problem i have come across is that UC toranas have a lightened chassis due to not having a v8 in their model range, should i still get a 308 (does the chassis matter) and how do i go about putting the engine in.

New plates for Monaro

I have just received the conformation letter telling me my W.A plates are going to be black plate white writting "OLDSCOOL" as in OLD SCHOOL. I tried to get OLDSKOOL but it was already taken. I reacon it should suit it down to the ground agree. Thanks for all the suggestions everyone who replied to my question about what to get. I was tempted with the 3FIDDY but I think with the new Monaros on the road OLDSCOOL is the right one

Twas the rice before christmas.

'Twas the night before Christmas and caught at the light,
Was a domestic V8 and no cops in sight,

I will try, I will try, I will try with this small motor,
To beat this darn Nova, even with its big blower,

As the light goes green and I pull like no joke,
The Nova erupts in clouds of tire smoke,

Now Smasher, now Rev-ver, now Stroker, now Blitzin,
These are the names of my four VTEC pistons,

Racing ahead I'm the star of the action,
But I know I'm in trouble when that V8 gets traction,

Grabbing second, I hear the RPM sing,
My mirror is blocked by my shopping cart wing,

I now hear the roar, of that big monster gaining,

Dimensions for a HQ - HZ ute

Hi im a year 11 student at school. For my subject Design and Technology i chose to design and build a fibreglass canopy for a HQ-HZ ute. But because i dont have one of these cars yet i cant design and make it untill i know the dimensions for the standard ute tray(not a 1 tonner tray).If anyone had some measurements for me that would be great.Eg length, width etc.
Thanks guys

Rana Intake and Carbie

hi guys. Found this for sale over here in NZ. Im just looking for comments on it, and what type of carbie it is, all that sorta stuff..Two barrel stormberg? whats the weird circle thing at the bottom, will my current air cleaner fit, (which is stock)
Also what should this go for? 50 odd bucks seems good does it? I'd have to get it rebuilt also. All of the hoses I take it will be the heater, vacuume advance etc pipes correct?
Oh, and I have a trimatic box, whats the go with kickdown on that if i got this carbie?

Would this make much of an improvement to the stock single barrel I have on my old girl at the moment? if so, what?

torry shell

G'day all you holden lovers out there. Hey look i'm chasing a dead straight rust free LH/LX 4 door shell with doors etc. I did the silly thing and bought about $6,000 worth of new seals, rubbers, bushes, suspension, interior, drop tank, exhaust and rebuilt motor only to find that when i stripped the old girl back, the shell was hiding a multitude of sins. Seems a waste to put all this good gear on a [Naughty Pottyword] shell. Any help would be great. Don't care if the paints faded or scratched, she's gunna get a new coat of 1CO46 linamint green.
Thanks,
Dan
hopefully they will send me a password soon so

VL Front Seat Vertical Position Adjustment

I know i have posted a similar question lately but this one is a tad diff. My mate has a VL too & his vertical section of his front passenger seat is not moving back & forwards as if you want to lay back in the seat or have it sitting you up straight. The mechanism that changes the position of it wont operate it, in other words its f'ed. Has any of the other VL owners come across this prob yet & know what needs to be fixed? Ta.
