Thanks Rusty.

Just want to say thanks to Rusty for sorting my account out. Been along time since I've used the site but will be trying to pick all your minds soon as my girlfriend and i just a bought a 1967 hr holden special with a factory 186 and 2 speed powerglide. Hasn't been on the road for almost 39 years. Currently in about 1000 pieces awaiting a full resto. Pictures to come as soon as it gets dropped off to my place.
Cheers ray...

Not really old Holden related, but I wanted to check in and see what everyone was up to.

Its been ages since I have been on here. A mate recently purchased an RA28 Celica and has recruited me to build it. Fair amount of Rust, but im starting on the Worst Panel First (Door) - I figure if i can save it then the rest will be easy.

I bought a little $400 3 in 1 Welder on Ebay, and got some Gas and .6 wire, and must say im impressed how good it is to work with. Costs me $100 a year to rent the Gas, and makes gasless look like a joke.

308 and 253 trimatics

Hi guys i have a 308 and a 253 trimatic with gearboxes, just wondering what they might be worth. Not sure if there running or not.

Also would it be worth getting them re drilled to fit a turbo patten. if so what sort of cost would i be looking at and where would be a good place to take them in Melbourne South east suburbs or along mornington peninsula to have it done. So from Dandnong to Frankston.

Thanks again

VS Commodore Fuel problems

Hi Guys i have a VS Commodore duel fuel daily driver. I run it mostly on gas but from time to time a switch it over to petrol. Yesterday morning i switch it over only to have it conk out on me.

I have 3/4 of a tank of petrol in there so i know its not empty unless my gauge is faulty which i dont think it is because i use the same gauge for the gas as well.

I have checked the fuses but still no luck. Just wondering if it might be the fuel pump.

What sort of cost for a resto on a fairly good classic holden?

If I was to Take an eh for example only, in a fairly clean condition to have it fully done by professionals? what do you rekon it would cost, just a rough figure. My Old Uncle asked me to build his eh I told him the truth that it could cost upto 25k he said I was going to rip him off? I offered to do it free no labour but it would still cost that much for parts paint and trim. thanks ahead. cheers.

Stroker

Hi guys i have just been given a two 308 with gearboxes that have been sitting for a long time. I know one come out of a HQ 1tonner the other not sure on also not sure if there are running or not either.

Thinking of pulling them down cleaning them up and maybe get a stoker kit to put in at least one of them.

Is there much demand for this sort of setup or are people going for a small block chevs or a VN to VT 304 style with a stroker kits now days.

Have nothing to put it in. Would mainly be a talking point in the man cave or something like that.
