OK how do you double the market value of a Camira?

whats the diff

WHATS THE DIFF BETWEEN A MINI SPOOL A FULL SPOOL AND A DETROIT LOCKER? SEEMS TO ME LIKE THEY ALL DO THE SAME BLOODY THING. WHEN I BUY ONE OF THESE DO I ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO CHANGE TO A FINER SPLINE AXLE OR ARE STANDARD NINE INCH AXLES OK? CHEERS.

WB Station Wagon?

Heres a question for the experts. Have a guy here in New Zilind selling a 1984 WB Wagon on an internet auction site. He swears that it's genuine but I can't find any info on a WB wagon. I'd be quite keen to have a look if it was straight up but I won't travel the length of the country if it's not. Have a lokk for yourselve and let me know what you think. Website is www.trademe.co.nz. Go to trade me motors and under search type in Holden WB Wagon 1984.

HQ value ?

My mate's uncle has a HQ and he's wondering what it would be worth. Genuine one owner straight off the factory floor, less than 40 000 miles on it and has spent most of its life under plastic wrap. The body and interior are supposed to be in absolutely perfect condition, like brand new. That's all I nkow about it but I assume its a four door. What d'ya reckon it would be worth ?
