New headlights

I am chasing a new set of headlights for my FJ. I want a set with built in indicators and park light globes. autoloc.com has what i want but they never reply to questions. Does anybody know a supplier/dealer in australia that sells something similar??

I am an old retired mechanic of some 75 years and have been a keen observer of this website for some considerable time now.
I think it is a wonderful thing that so many old car lovers are prepared to give their time and knowledge to help those who are wanting help on car matters.
Some of these people are in the business commercially and they are to be highly commended for their advise to others without wanting payment for it.

all holden day

Is there a trick to downloading the all holden day entry form? It doesnt seem to work. I have acrobat so can load PDF files etc, but it just goes to photobucket. Do I have to join that? Cheers, Paul.

hk gts

hi. dragged the hk gts out of the shed today. sadly our last monaro to play with unless we find some more. only 2nd time it has moved since 1987. we found it in a shed in tamworth a couple of years ago and put it away for the youngest son. now it is time to start on it. the ht is nearly finished. came with a 327 with a turbo bolted to it. powerglide and nine inch diff. used to be draged in tamworth in the 80's. we are going to try to turn it back to stock. we have a big job ahead of us even though there is no rust in the car is is pretty battered about. the photos are from my phone but you can still see the bad repair the lh quater panel has had. good news is i have a nos 1/2 quater to put on it. will post some more pics later.

HK GTS difference between 186s & 307 body

Hi all, Does any one know how to pick the difference between a 186s & a 307 HK GTS body. I have just picked up a HK GTS Monaro 80737 It currently runs a 350. The guy I got it off assures me that it is a genuine 307 car because he knows the previous owner of 18 years who pulled out the original 307 motor. Any help would be great.

LX TORANA HATCH

Hey lads..

Still looking for a straight lx torana hatch. Driveline does not bother me as long as the body is straight and has minimal rust etc.

202 and 186 questions

Hi. I've got a HX with a buggered red 202 with a yella terra head. I was wondering if I could bolt the yella terra head onto my good 186 bottom end. Is there any difference between a 202 yella terra and a 186 yella terra?
Also, would a HX pass a RWC with a 186 if I hook up the pollution gear?
Thanks.

Just got the wagon put on gas

thought i'd share the dyno results. its not a performance car by any means, but i'm pretty well happy about only losing 5kw at the wheel after the refit. this is using the wrong plugs and before advancing the ignition too so i should get a little more out of it shortly aswell.

pretty stoked with this for $2600, considering i get $2000 back within a week or two i reckon you'd have to be mad not to convert.

OldHolden.com's European ad campaign

Image: 

Here's part II of oldholden.com's european advertising campaign, this time from the Colosseum!
I just got back to London from Rome, so I've covered Paris and London in the shirt as well (actually, needed a jacket on pretty much all of the time, damn cold countries!), but I'm getting a feeling that the fan base isn't gonna rise too much because of it, haha. I get back to Oz in less than a week though and cant wait to be back cruisin' the beach in the ute.
