Big wheels ain't too bad on old cars with the right tyres & suspension

Only thing I'd do to it would be dress it up with some jewellery. But that's my taste, he may like it just the way it is. And so he should, it's very sexy..

Samoa sounds cool, bloody long way from the West though.
Hopefully not to much loner before the Chev goes in still need to save a bit more cash for all the bits like shifter, oil cooler, more brake parts and tail shaft and the list goes on. Hopefully Tax time will get most of it.

Hey guys,
Ian Here. The proud owner of the EH Wagon. Just spent the last 18 mths doing her up. Thought it was the right thing to do as she turned 50!!! ha ha ha. The wheels are Streeters by show wheels. 18 x 7 on the front and 18 x 8 on the rear. HR front end to help with the stopping. Re-skinned the doors & tailgate. New sills internal and external. All the chrome re done by Hamilton Chrome, Newcastle. Old school, triple plate. Buckets re upholstered by Newcastle Trim. Awseome job. 179 with mild cam, bit of head work, 2 1/2" stainless exhaust. Triple SU's. running through a Celica 5 speed. Twin thermo fans and electronic ignition.
Panel work by Kevin McDonald Phoenix restorations in Forster, Paint by CAV'S Spray painting (Ian Cavanagh) Forster.
Yes I went for a minimalist approach as the paint and panel work is so good, thought I'd let it speak for itself.
Few things to complete in the interior, I have fabricated new dash pads in timber (jarrah) that we are currently spraying in 2 pac clear. Match the steering wheel and gear stick.
My thoughts are a few simple exclamations to show off the beauty of a true classic!!

Cheers.

Not a lot there though. I think a lot were scared off because of the weather. But the weather was lovely? Unless something else was on somewhere else.. Dunno.

Ohhh Al,

My sincerest apologies, the amount of effort you put in taking the photo's does require acknowledgement.

Being led astray.................I'm all for that!!!! ha ha ha

P.S. next time I'll have the single fin in the back! Then we can go catch a few together!!

A mate said to me once, "The joy of owning and old car, is that you look young against it."

Shame I'm older than the car. Ha Ha Ha

Could have funded the resto! ha ha.
