Hi .. welcome to my car page. It's not a great webpage as such but it has some good pics of my car. I bought the car when I was 16 and have owned the car 16 years now. It's a 1962 EK Holden as the heading says but theres not much of her that is that age anymore. I'm not a motor mechanic or anyone whos completely up with the ins and outs of automobiles so it is a good example of how anyone with enough dedication and money(especially hehe) can build a decent streeter. This page will load real slow but afterwards clicking on any of the pics will take you to the fullsize pic as I've decreased their size so the page wont be so cluttered.
The car is painted in acrylic on the body and the under body and driveline components are in 2 pack paint.The car was rolled on its side so that the welds on the new floor could be ground and smoothed out. All bar the rear window is new glass and the side windows are tinted toughened glass so no bubbles:)) The rubbers in the car are all new. The radiator is a custom 3 core job running a thermal fan. I have a mallory twin point dizzy and accel supercoil on the ignition side. I basically rebuilt the whole car replacing most components .. the brakes from go to whoa are all new or reconditioned and ran new brake lines throughout as well as Silicone brake fluid. The fuel tank and lines are all new ... I enlarged the tank well and had a custom aluminium tank fabricated. I have a small lathe and mill where I work so i was lucky to be able to make little alloy fancy bits like the centres for the dragway rims it's running.
I've just recently had these pics rescanned myself and they came out pretty good.
IT HAS 6CYLINDER 186CI MOTOR AND A FOUR SPEED ALL-AUSSIE BOX WITH A MR GASKET VERTICAL GATE SHIFTER. IT ALSO HAS A FORD NINE INCH DIFFERENTIAL(LSD), LEATHER INTERIOR,CUSTOM S/STEEL EXHAUST SYSTEM AND HEAPS OF CHROME AND POLISHED ALLOY BITS .
I've taken it to a few shows and done well .... well better than I thought. It's been at Motorvation in the burswood dome a couple of times and did well . Best was when it won best street machine overall at the 1993 Big Al Pokers Run coz it was peers that judged the cars not the normal show Judges.
I LOVE CRUISIN IN IT BUT DON'T GET TO DO IT AS OFTEN AS I LIKE.
SEEYA OUT THERE!!
