Really Nice Adam.
Yes, it is sad. I call GM the incredible shrinking car company. We were months away from getting a Ute of our own by way of Pontiac, but then GM axed Pontiac. And now, among other bad ideas, Holden is gone. At least I have my El Camino & a Pontiac G8 GT....closest I'm going to get to a SSV Ute anytime soon.Haha, no worries mate, some of the VF utes are getting some silly prices now that Holden have stopped manufacturing, Ford have also stopped manufacturing in australia too! pretty sad really, we always have had australian built police cars since forever, now they are driving toyotas and Kia Stingers..sad state of affairs. cheers bud
Adam, That's a beautiful restoration. I have the pieces you need for the back window and I've sent parts to elky owners in Australia and NZ. If I can help, drop me a line at [email protected].Still need the top stainless trim for the rear window of the Elco too, but it not an easy task from where I live
Haha yep pretty much in the workshop all the time, I'm not much of a sit around and watch TV sort of guy, i eat, go to sleep, go to work (I work from home out in the backyard in a 2900 square foot workshop), then repeat! haha, cheersGreat Job. That's an amazing accomplishment for one year. Were you quarantined to the garage for COVID?
thanks bud. im over the moon. cheersWhat an incredible feeling you must have driving a beautiful ride like that which you brought back to life yourself. I bought mine as a wreck and did it in a few months but it wasn't to the extent of the work that you did. Love it man Enjoy !
thanks for the words mate, much appreciated. i'm loving this car. cheersBeautiful vehicle!!! I particularly like your color choices. Very nice all around. Clean engine bay and solid choices for the interior. I went with a bench seat on mine, too. I was leaning toward buckets but my wife was solidly in the bench seat camp, so I found a sharp seat from Cerullo in California. Turns out my wife was right. The bench was the way to go, at least in the present configuration. I admire your car very much. Nice work.
cheers mate, I have enjoyed every part of this restoWhat an incredible feeling you must have driving a beautiful ride like that which you brought back to life yourself. I bought mine as a wreck and did it in a few months but it wasn't to the extent of the work that you did. Love it man Enjoy !
