No more Opel ,sorry, I meant Commodore.

They have canned the Commodore name: https://www.whichcar...
With the pitiful sales Holden are getting across the range, I can't see them justifying the cost of the badge engineering and advertising under the Holden name.
How long before the Holden name is gone and we just have the GM brand and GM dealerships?

Paint Colour

Hi guys.
Been a long time since I’ve been on here...

I’m after some paint info for an FJ.
My paint code is 253-16321.
When doing a google search on the dulux colour 6321 it comes back as a brown colour. I rang dulux and on their record sl it have 3 options. One is a baby blue colour, and then two brown colours.
Can anyone give me a colour for this.

202 Auto stammering in gear and running rough.

So I've got a 202 blue with a trimatic behind it. Running a varajet manifold and using an adaptor plate for the carbie. I'd had this issue where the motor was stammering, like there was some kinda major miss going on there, but in park or neutral it didn't seem as bad "although I'm sure it was still happening". It was running bloody rough as guts! Today I thought I'd really investigate it. Thought of what possible probs could be going on so I:

Installed brand new manifold gasket and tightened the guts out of it! - No difference!

HJ front end alignment issue

Hello, I have just replaced all front end steering and braking components and the drivers side wheel now sits on an angle when the steering wheel us straight.... at first I thought this was just a simple wheel alignment fix, but the more I look at it, it could be a wrongly adjusted tie rod on the drivers side?

Do you guys think I should remove the tie rod and shorten the length to pull the wheel straight?
Thanks

How often is your old Holden driven? Probably for most of us, our pre 70's 80's holdens are no longer our ride from A to B on a daily basis. This poll will shed some light on how often our pride and joys are actually fired up and driven out of the shed.

wheel well drain holes

gday all,

can any of you boys pls tell whether the the holes
in the lower boot wheel wells, on a hz sedan, should be plugged/sealed?

...because my lhs is unplugged but the rhs isnt..?

so, are they in fact meant to be drain holes, and should they both
be plugged or not?

if they're not drain holes, then what are they for?

pls see pics attaced.

thanks.

Pet hates

I really hate this.
Motor racing celebrity autographs scribbled on cars.
I was looking at a really nice XA GT for sale and came across this pic of the sunvisor. (my Italian mate's father paid cash for an identical car new)
Why? It doesn't any value. It's just one of thousands of scribbles these blokes did for blokes with their hand down their pants.(hope I don't offend anyone)
To me, it doesn't add value to a car. It diminishes the value if anything. I wouldn't want a car with this rubbish on it.

I've been through the web looking for a photo of the rear window car dealer logo of Newman Holden that were in Moggill Rd. Taringa Qld In 1981...... Ive asked a couple of the reproduces but both don't have any record. Who knows someone out there may still have one on the rear window .
