The car was a birthday gift for my 16th birthday.
It started life as a stockie, but soon turned into quite the opposite.
Before we knew it Dad and I had embarked on a full engine transplant. This was quite a journey in itself, since we’d never done anything quite like it. It was a great experience and we learned a lot along the way.

It started life as a stockie, but soon turned into quite the opposite.

The car now runs a Toyota/Lexus V8 and gearbox connected to a Ford 9” in the back. We wanted to do something a little different, but also keep it very practical for road use. There is still a bit to be done, but family life has taken over most of the past years.
One day it will get there…
