A 1,500 quid FJ. Cheap.

The quickest Holden in Australia.
But it was probably a couple of hundred pounds more than a new Holden back then, or about a year's wages..
So it isn't as cheap as it sounds.

Importing wheels from u.s.a

Hi guys,
So I’m up to the stage of putting some nice aftermarket wheels on my hz. Just like to know any feedback or anyone with experience in importing wheels from the U.S.
I have found some wheels I want to get on the internet but not sure if you have to order for an American car I.e camaro
Obviously having an hz Holden they don’t have those cars , and just want to know, do you have to order for an American car or does anyone know what American car has the same hubs and stud pattern as Holden hz?
Any feedback much appreciated, Thanks

Rotary Engine Premier

Interesting read.
Mazda Roadpacer AP (Anti Pollution)
HJ and HX Holden Premier sedans that were exported to Japan and then had a 13B Wankel Rotary in the Mazda factory, then sold as a Mazda Roadpacer AP. They had 130hp, but very low torque, so poor acceleration and fuel consumption. Top speed was 166kph.

Cheers, Mick.

Dr Terry

or anyone else with a good knowledge base, what other engines if any, be it Four, Six, or Eight cylinders, share the same bell housing bolt pattern as the Holden straight six engines?

Thanks in advance.

Cheers, Mick.

Crowdy Head rattle trap races

Tickets are on sale for the Rattle Trap Races on Crowdy Head beach on Saturday, 4th may.
This is a great day of racing on the sand with old school hot rods put on by Drag Ens.
Tickets usually go fast, I've missed out the first two times it was on. Got mine tonight, third time lucky.

Tell him he's dreaming

$80,000 for a POS that needs restoring.
I know it's a four door HQ GTS, but is it worth $80,000 of my money. Maybe I'd think twice if it was a genuine 350 and i had lots of money.
Is HQ 80469 the correct code for a HQ GTS sedan?

Why are fire engines red?

Ever wondered why are fire engines red ?????
Its because they have eight wheels and four people on them, and four plus eight makes twelve, and there are twelve inches in a foot, and one foot is a ruler, and Queen Elizabeth was a ruler, and Queen Elizabeth was also a ship, and the ship sailed the seas, and there were fish in the seas, and fish have fins, and the Finns fought the Russians, and the Russians are red, and fire trucks are always “Russian" around, so that's why fire trucks are red!

I went and bought a replacement cap (tridon) and it doesn't fit the product code is TFL202V was I given the wrong one???? When I cjeck their website this is supposedly the replacement.
