Perth Meet

Hey all,
Well i posted here oh bout a month back now wondering who would be interested in doing another perth cruise. I had a few responses but nothing ever came of it. I suggested the long weekend in march (labor day) but someone quickly reminded me that it would be double demrits. Not that any of us would do anything stupid but there are always a lot more cops on the prowl during that period. So how bout the following weekend or shall we wait till after easter as easter this year is at the end of march. Im open for suggestions.
Regards
Matty
P.S. If you are wondering if i have my car ba

Picnic At Hanging Rock Eye Candy Thread.

Well it was another great run to hanging rock.
Heaps of old holdens and monaro's.
Less rice than last year.
Cooler nicer weather.
What's not to like

Got loads of pics too... tried to keep it to holdens and a few others of note.

first 130 pics are of the vic monaro club cars and/or random monaro's.
130 onwards is the general cars (mostly holdens)

One thing in particular struck me... the sheer NUMBER of GTR and GTR-XU-1 torana's on display! BAGS of them!

Ecotrans - Ecotherm???

Hello,  
There was a mob in Melbourne manufacturing a thermostat housing that sat in the lower radiator hose.  
they claimed it gave cylinders more even temp, reduced water pump cavitation etc .     they were called Ecotrans. the product was Ecotherm.  

Has anybody heard of them or have their details?  

The ones I have dont work anymore and all net searches fail to reveal any info.   Cheers   Ed

do not use big kevs stain free on car carpet

after a few days of heavy rain, i noticed a mould patch on the carpet of the HZ, thinking i should get onto this a.s.a.p before it spreads any further, well i did, upstairs, grabbed big kevs stain free, sprayed a bit on, it removed the mould and the stain alright, but it also removed the dye in my carpet!!! [Naughty Pottyword]!!! so if you stain your carpet in your car, DO NOT USE BIG KEVS STAIN FREE!!!! unless of course you want your carpet to look like [Naughty Pottyword], good onya big kev ;)

Legal Mods???

i live in WA and was thinking about making modifications to covert a wagon to 2 door and windowless sides - like a pano wagon and was wondering whether this required engineers approval or what as the idea was to retain the back seat keeping it a 5/6 seater.

Any help would be appricated?

Cheers
Johno

Perth cruise #3 (I think we are due hey)

Hey perthies,
Hows it all going. Just having a look at the up and comin events here on the site and see that all next few events are in the eastern states. Whats up with that.
I was thinking then what if we start to organise another perth meet. I'm thinking possibly on the labour day long weekend which is the 4,5,6,7 March.
I just heard news last week that my mechanic has quit his job and as of tonight he will be in perth permantly so now he can finally finish off my bloody car. haha.
Anyone else up for it. 3rd time lucky i always say. And shall we try a new meeting point as well.
Regards

engine numbers/codes

over the next few days, i will be compiling a list of engine codes for our beloved old holdens, with the dramas of rego laws etc etc, it happens to often that someone purchases an unregistered vehicle ie HZ...only to find that a motor from a hq is fitted therefore not fulfilling the pollution requirements for rego or buying a 5lt hz and it turning out to be a 253, by compiling a list of engine codes the user will be able to denote within seconds the model,engine size and vehicle which the motor in question came from ....a mechanic mate of mine has the books in relation to the engine codes, which has basically every single holden available from the f series - VL ( i wont be doing vn onwards)
