What sort of cost for a resto on a fairly good classic holden?

If I was to Take an eh for example only, in a fairly clean condition to have it fully done by professionals? what do you rekon it would cost, just a rough figure. My Old Uncle asked me to build his eh I told him the truth that it could cost upto 25k he said I was going to rip him off? I offered to do it free no labour but it would still cost that much for parts paint and trim. thanks ahead. cheers.

My UC

Since I finished the resto I have loved every second driving it, runs so smooth. Its proof that if you dedicate yourself to a project and don't rush it will get finished. My advice is don't keep or look at the receipts after buying parts, and don't add up what it cost and ignore the fact that you spent 500 hours restoring it . That's my secret to completing a project.

EK Barn find it will be mine....

my wife and I was walking the dog and she saw in the corner of her eye a pinkie colour tail fin in a neighbours shed. Later that day I went over and asked to have a look, BAM a rust free ek sitting in the shed since 1975, complete, just had the engine out. I asked if I could buy it and the old lady there said she will have a think. Now I'm just waiting for that phone call, I walk past every day just to check that fin is still there. Its very promising. Yes I'm excited, and I love my wife for spotting it. Yippie.

Rares Fuel sender unit. Issues?

Im not sure what is going on with my sender unit. The car gauge works fine, thats an easy test.I replaced the original sender unit as the cork had disintegrated, with a new rares unit. It would work from full but after about halfway on the car fuel guage, it would not read lower. Just stay around half . Pulled it in and out of the tank a couple of times with no change.

Not something you see every day

Driving past one of the local car yards recently and saw this sitting in a prominent position. To my uneducated eye, it looks pretty original except for wheels. but with only 6200 miles on the clock and split seams on the passenger seat, something did not look quite right. If anyone is interested it is in Gosford NSW.

Unleaded fuel availability slowly declining?

Question:- A new BP servo has opened up at the Northern end of Nambucca where the new highway bypass will go. I noticed that they dont sell 91 unleaded fuel? The Caltex in Macksville doesn't either?
Why? I thought unleaded was the most popular and therefore would contribute to more sales and profit.
I have heard it said that the government isn't allowing it in new servos in an effort to phase it out to push people into E10?
Any ideas?
Alby
