  1. Mate, 3 on the go, but none complete... Would love to do the big LCR stroker, but can't reach that far...
  2. Not sure if I'll be going Thursday or Friday, but will aim to meet you by Wangaratta if I can get away Thursday
  3. Hatch is fibreglass, but still opens... just can't see the gap in the spoiler on that angle Some action shots - pre engine letting go...
  4. Pulled these off my 2l roadster because they were leaky and fitted a pair of 46m hitachi Su's I had Cleaned them up fitted new seals hoses etc, have 80mm trumpets fitted and some linkages $575
  5. I can show you one Saturday in Moorabbin and you can measure or take it as a sample - removed from a car in the 70's still not in bad condition...
  6. Good little Shannons Vid on the Roadsters, made at our workshop, with the race roadster and a few other things lurking in the background https://shannonsinsurance.cmail20.com/t/y-l-kikyck-tdyuyuhdir-n/
  7. I know where there is another one - pretty rusty, being pulled apart currently and will be parted out after - i think the drivers side rear was rusty under the window, but the filler area appeared good
  8. In sad condition, but has factory electronic ignition and original 'Nissan' rocker cover, rather than Datsun on the SP311's and other R engines
  9. Shouldn't mention the $70Bn Future Fund then i guess, grown to $120Bn ... altho personally I reckon Keating was way cooler and he got China Back on topic (sort of) the great thing about classic cars is that they are CGT free (like the family home) means they are a good wealth store and no tax on the gain, and once they are on historic plates there is no duty to buy them. So even though they make zero annual return they are not bad as an investment overall - and you even get to drive them
  10. fwiw - Although Sydney is 'falling' the last announcement was a .1% fall and the total is less than 2%... Melbourne is still up 7%+ last 12 months but as it is now within about 10% of Sydney it will flatten too, but we still have 100,000 people moving here (Melb) every year, so don't bet on a big reduction. Brisbane is about 30% behind, so it will grow materially in the next 2-3 years as people move there for the cheaper living - that's my bet - and my brother just bought a house there and he has always been lucky with his timing! I read a recent study on the ultra wealthy, and rather than talent or intelligence, most got there due to good luck! so don't overthink it Disclaimer - I cannot predict the future - so good luck if you follow this advice!
