I'm back

Gday OH'ers

My old account was Perth Mick, Rusty help me get it back and i've changed it to Perth Neil as i don't really go by Mick anymore.

Anyway I'm in the process of looking for a HK HT HG 4 door. End goal is a good solid car with a 308 or later on 355.

I've found a hg Kingswood. I did the PPSR search but it came back with no vehicle info under NEVDIS (never heard of it before anyway)

HQ Stromberg Bits Needed!

Hey everybody. I've been having trouble with my worn out accelerator linkages in my HQ so I've decided to go to a cable instead.

The problem is, the bracket you get in the aftermarket kits (Rare Spares etc) seems to be for the V8 engine and I can't find anywhere to attach it. I'm trying to track down some old cable-type strombergs or bits so I can salvage the brackets and suchlike that I need.

Can anyone help me out or suggest someone who can?? (I live in Brisbane but I'm willing to pay for postage/go for a drive)

Thanks!

Temp Light

decided to take the HR for a run today through hills. It was about 35 degrees. Checked coolant before heading off. Car ran well - considering it's the original 50 year old engine having never been reconditioned or head removed. On way home after about 3 hours I took her up to about 65-70 - whereas she normally feels content about 55. After sometime the temp light came on - so slowly pulled to the side and was prepared to turn engine off an let cool down - but the light went off - so dropped back to 55 and never came on again all way home.

Account

Gday

My old account is Perth Mick.

I haven't been on the forum for quite a while. I shot rusty an email but didn't get a response so maybe its an old email address.

Any ideas how i can get hold of the admin guys?

Sad sale - UC Torana - as is (insurance write-off)

Feel free to check out my ad on Gumtree. Very sad sale, and in fact the damage is pretty much confined to the right front quarter (not taking into account the general condition of the vehicle), but I don't have the money or energy to tackle any repairs.

I've spent a fair amount on her already, but thankfully hadn't on the bodywork. Happy to answer any questions not answered in the ad.

Vehicle currently in Goulburn, NSW (at least for a couple of weeks).

Waltzing Matilda ?

Image: 

I dont know if anyone remembers 70's and 80's Australian Country singer legend, Ray Kernaghans (father of Lee Kernaghan) jet powered Ford Louisville? It held the land speed record for a truck for quite a few years.
I know that as a primary school aged kid back then, it inspired half the boys at the time to be a truck driver.
I wonder where it is now?? maybe someone knows?...

Headlight surrounds

New grille arrives tomorrow so I'm sure the original headlight surrounds will quickly stand out as looking a bit dull and dated. what is the best way of bringing them back? $195 for replacements seem a bit much for what they are.
