A mate used to have a gold one of these. His had an XA 351GT motor, Toploader and 3:1 9" Detroit Locker diff, oh and a 40 litre fuel tank!

At 80 km/h on a grippy dry bitumen road, if you floored it in 4th you actually went slower. At the same time, smoke from both back wheels stopped you seeing what was behind you...

When he went to get it registered in WA, he had to cut the factory scoop off it as it was "too high" and replace it with a lower one... A few months later, he replaced the engine mounts and, you guessed it, he had to cut the lower scoop off and put a factory original one back on...

It got written off after an idiot came through a Stop sign and cleaned my mate up...

About 20 years later, I saw it at a car show. A member of the Bolwell club of WA had bought it and was restoring it....

Yeah, driver's side front extensively damaged. IIRC, he dived for the passenger's seat JUST before the actual impact.

He had a hell of a time getting the other bloke's insurance to pay out. Took years.
