the monaro bubble has burst. looks like corrosion on the tags, possibly acid assisted. 23 k for a 6 banger isn't bad, especially with the tags in that condition.

If your project doesn't work, look for the part you didn't think was important.

What are you talking about ?

23k is a bit excessive, but not completely unreasonable.

How about the same car for 45k ?.....like Twolezzos ?

THAT is a bubble.

Anyway, it's not sold until the money hits the bank.

My question would be, how did two tags get so bad and the other has not been effected at all?

You can see how the complaince plate once said coupe utility, Monaro compliance plates do not have sedan on them. (might be wrong any others out there with an HG Monaro)

Just checked on australian muscle car sales, Brisbane HG Monaro do not have sedan on compliance plate.

Not a badge forgery, but the ADRs are not quite right also.

Amazing what you can make these days.

I asked about the suspect plate in question:

"Hi J.C.
How come the compliance plate has the word 'SEDAN' over the word 'UTILITY'? Also, can you explain why SEDAN was put on this Brisbane built vehicle, when such cars didn't get that word?
Many thanks"

Grammatically disastrous but polite reply was:
"Hey mate,don't know to much about how the plates came out.i bought it in 98 and had (no) problem registering it then I put it back on the road last year still no dramas and have also checked numbers with Holden they did say Brisbane and that it is 186s gts monaro,cameo gold with the cream int.all I can help you with the two plates were near destroyed with apprentice cleaning them hydrochloric acid.thanks"

HK'ing.

'i'm definately shore that guage wont work with my tuff bango diff and Opal sydcrome box,if it goes though my grill,and I put the breaks on I realize its better with the glimer belt & tunned holly and Ederbrock duel feul webber gaurds, wiht etc primmer.'

We all know that Holden records do not go back to HG, especially colour and trim. If they did have the records Holden would have called it sandalwood not cream interior and a L6 GTS not a 186S GTS.

Car looks ok, are those door cards how they should be? Look good. I like the interior. Wheels are horrible - something about them doesn't fit.

The tags are very questionable. I can't even start to guess what's happened with them.

I love his shed and view though....more than the car :P

Maybe he had a go at cleaning the tags and got it wrong and decided not to attempt the last one.

NON GTS

The two damaged tags look like they have traces of paint on them. Maybe someone sand blasted them to remove the paint. Or maybe they were sandblasted to destruction to hide the fact that they are dodgy.

Old is good.

Always come here about re birthing, well this car is that. He has used a compliance plate from another vehicle, and therefroe would also have the chassis nuber welded into the firewall. Then probably detroyed the tags dliberately to hide the numbers as to what it once was.

aluminium is easily disolved buy caustic soda (used in the process to make alumina) most good degreasers contain caustic soda some more so than others and anything aluminum will start to bubble and leave avery dull grey finish

The first good plate, the one pop riveted on, has some funky stuff going on the date stamp is different, the y at the end of sedan. Plus i never seen a coupé with sedan at the end of it.
