GM HDHR Cruise Club Christmas Cruise

The GM HDHR Cruise Club held their annual 'Christmas Appreciation Day' (CAD) at the Ash Wednesday Park in Macedon, VIC today.

We started with a windy, cold and drizzly morning and it turned into a bright and sunny day with a great day enjoyed by all.

Check out the club website photos and go to 'Macedon Christmas 2012'

Painting Engine

Once I get all the bugs sorted out on the EJ I want to repaint the engine. As you know, this is a 138 Red Motor from an LC Torana. When originally fitted to the car someone has sprayed it black, which obviously wasn't done too well as it is now peeling off and the original red showing through. I thought about respraying it grey to make it look like a grey motor, but on reflection think it should be original Holden Red. Does anyone have any tips for repainting an engine in the car? Would be easier out, but was hoping to be able to manage it without doing this.

Nothing Important... Just the fact Australian Motorsport is dieing.

Okay, so, It's not old Holden's. It's about the new car market. As you all know, Ford & Holden are struggling to sell large cars and next year, V8 Supercars is introducing Car of the Future, and running a new Altima and a AMG. It's good that OUR Commodore will continue to be built thanks to GM being such a loving and caring company :) But it isn't good that Ford are going down what i believe is the wrong path, in selling smaller fuel efficient cars and dropping the Falcon.
