1977 HZ Statesman Caprice ~ finally on the road!!

I have never attached photos before, so I'm giving it a go! If it works, they should be of my HZ Statesman Caprice. Many hours of work, lots of money and I still want to do more!

Girls just wanna have fun!

EH Classic actio picture.

This picture was Alex Garrard in his EH at the first EH All State Run in 1981.
The wagon was the best EH wagon I've ever seen. It ran a big six with triple Webers.
Sorry but I haven't worked out how to put pictures straight into posts, see the attachment.
The picture is a 30 year old Polaroid so please excuse the quality.

Shed Find

I found this ute up the coast, it had a full rotisserie resto about 12 years ago, then put away in a shed and stored, it has a 262ci V6 Chev, Turbo 350 gearbox, LSD Torana diff, rack & pinion HR front, full chassis, Geniune 31000miles.
The interior is all new, pearled steering wheel.

Im going thru the process of getting it QLD mod plated at the moment.

It just goes to show that this type of stuff is still around.

Redwagon

Happy New Year all, am looking for a mechanic to make repairs to our EH wagon as there is serious issues with the HR disc front end it has in it.
We've recently relocated from Queensland to Melbourne and don't know many people in car circles or mechanics who like working on old cars. Any suggestions for inner N/E area?

Cheers
