Re; Prototype No. 1 coming to Sydney

It is with a sad heart that I have to post on here, and bring this to your attention.

I am currently looking after 2 rather historic Holdens. Protoype No. 1, and Holden No. 215 (The first retail Holden sold) I have worked hard to bring these two cars together, and my dream is that both cars will be preserved for ALL Australians to enjoy. I believe that they are a part of our history that should be enjoyed by all. Protoype No. 1 belongs to all Australians as part of our history. Not just motoring history, but social and industrial history as well.

I am wanting to bring the Prototype to Sydney as soon as possible so that the people of Sydney can appreciate this amazing, hand built and beautifully restored car by the Strongman family. While on display, I also want people to carefully look at the photos of our farm in Victoria that has been ruined by the actions of the NSW Government, via its department, EnerServ. There is much to tell about what happened, but in a nutshell, our farms natural spring water system was raped and it was done under the threat of arrest by the Police.
The media in NSW seem to refuse to want to expose this story, so I have no option but to bring to the attention of the people of Sydney what this Government has done via the Prototype.

As a result of what this Government department did, much of our beautiful farm is without it's previously drought proof springs, and the environmental damage inflicted is so severe that the spring fed dams will no longer even hold water! This is irreparable long term environmental damage. We every day about the drought, and that water is our most valuable asset.

It is interesting to note that today the NSW Government offered a subsidy for Sydney people to install rain water tanks. This same Government has left my livestock without any water, and a senior public servant said to me "I don't give a stuff about your farm"

The situation is that I sought, and was granted legal protection for this spring. When my family tried to protect it, we were threatened with arrest (on our own farm!) Being law abiding citizens, we then had to sit back and watch our farm get ruined, and lose it's most valuable asset. You would give a mongrel dog water in the summer wouldn't you, but it seems that the NSW Government doesn't have nay compassion, as it has refused to provide water for our livestock.

The bottom line is that not only did I have legal protection of the spring, we pleaded with the public servant the day before they entered our property to take another route and avoid the spring. The public servant said to avoid the spring, he would bore underneath the spring. Excuse me? Where does spring water come from? So I said that he would hit the springs, and he still refused to alter the route. So I asked who was then going to pay for these springs when they hit them BEFORE they entered our farm.

Well history has shown that springs were hit as we said they would, and we are without water in a drought.

My wife told the Police only recently that "she feared for her life" so dirty has this issue got to, and the dirty tricks that are being played agianst this family.

Sorry to go on, but this is the truth, and the media is trying to keep a lid on it.

So off to Sydney Holden Prototype No 1 goes. Only problem is, this country boy doesn't know Sydney that well.

So I am seeking help from those of you in Sydney who might like to assist me in this endeavour, so that Sydney people can learn the truth about what this Government gets up to outside it's boundaries, and how it treats ordinary people like ourselves, and the environment outside it's borders. And if the people of Sydney can enjoy and paarecite this wonderful car, then I would be happy. I get so much pleasure from people enjoying this car. It's just a pity I have had to go public, as i have tried to keep a low profile on a personal basis.

Oh, and my ultimate dream

The loss of a icon (people are stupid!)

Why are people so stupid!!!
just 3 weeks ago I came across a HQ monaro coupe sitting neglected in a old service stations yard, there was little left of her but the body was in good condition, I found the owner and offered to buy the HQ for $300, and tow it away that day, he said "ill think about it", after a week of waiting to hear from him, I called in, only to be told that the coupe was taken to the tip the previous day.
So off I went to see about buying it from the tip operators, only to arive in time to see a loader crush it flat.

stromberg carbies

Gday folks.

Can anyone tell me what the size of the standard stromberg found on 202 red motors is in cfm.

Im looking at getting the head flowed a bit more, bigger valves etc, and was wondering whether i would need to change the standard carby.

I am not after power gains at the expense of economy otherwise i would have bought a Holley 350. (id rather stick with the stocky or pick up a 2 barrel off a late model commodore)

Also on a standard engine (202), what would be the maximum rpm?

cheers cobbers

my aging engine

My original standard 173 in my LX Torrie isn giong to last a hell of a lot longer. She's done 240000kms without any sort of rebuild (no internals anyway) and still uses no oil. My question is, should I get hold of a 202 to replace my engine, or spend the money getting mine rebuilt? Does anyone know of good places in Sydney to got a new engine or get an engine rebuilt? Thanks. '
