I always liked the SV5000s with the British Racing Green paint and the cream interior they were a real classy looking car for their day.

Did you consider the green hue Mr Cool. Remember, Green... Green is nice.

Yes I did, in fact the donor car was the dark metallic green tha you mention, however that color didnt go well with the graphix I have in mind. What graphix you ask? Well you'll just havta wait and see.......

Those BA Falcon colours look great on the Falcon much better on a rod like yours (better not tell those HSV freaks what colour it is, they'll bring out their pitch forks, )
The silver wheels add a modern feel. Squint and those wheels look kind of like modern day Halibrands.
Mr Cool, you're the first to use the new Phantom Purple, but whose going to be the first to use one of the new Boss260/290 DOHC V8?

Who cares what the HSV freeks think, I know Im gunna cop it from them anyway, but if you look at the wreck I doubt I'd be able to repair it.
I like the wheels, and besides, it adds that little extra touch to the SV theme.
Not sure if Im the first to use the new color, but have you had a good look at the new fraud engine? Its bloody w i d e . The holden engine is damn tight in the early A body, sure as hell the Fraud wont fit.

Yep, they were neat looking cars. They've actually aged quite well compared to what a standard Crummydoore looks like.

Graphics??? I'm thinking dragons, barbarians and a few naked chicks. How'd I go?

Hahaha, youre way off the mark, but that does sound like a good theme for the Esky though.
And I did say graphix, not murals.

Isn't it good ruffling some feathers? I would if I could afford it.
What, did it go under a truck as well (hehe )
Last time I looked at the local wreckers there was V8 VT for $5000, and a 5lt EB XR8 for $3400 or $4200 (can't remember). Yup, some good donor vehicles like yours out there (V8s mate).

Thats the good thing about a wreck like yours, you can recoup some mul-la.
Can't wait to see the kind of graphics you have planned.

Yeah I sold what I could on ebay, bodykit, interior, fuel tank, anything I didnt want, got over half my $$ back there, so I saved alot by purchasing that car. The best thing about the HSV is that everyone wanted the stuff I didnt.

The 4.6l version is 29 inches wide and the 5.4l is a tall deck version so maybe a little bit wider still.

If a 426 hemi fits in a Boss260/290 probably would too. Does a 426 fit in most models and still allow room for enclosed bonnet ?

Got to be some wrecked GT's already I guess.
