351c
650 Holley
Lowered, (very very low)
Leaf Sprung Rear
9 inch
FMX Auto
Lots of chrome on the engine :)

Pics will follow soon

351 etc, Sounds nice (a XW Phase 1 or 2 maybe or a Coupe or Fairlane??)....but can you tell me why you went a VY S rather than the BA XR6 N/A?? Everyones got different taste, but the XR6 in manual form is good for very low 15's and a beautiful handler, not to mention its looks, interior etc.
What did the VY S bring to the table for you?- Not having a go, just interested BOF)

Thumbs up

Hey BOF,

Good to see you having a blue oval to drive again. A 351 V8 with a 650 Holley sounds like a sweet pachakge with alot of mumbo.

Can't wait to see piccies of the machine.

Welcome back BOF. Just wondering what would sway you to the VY over a BA? I can justify the VX over the AU.
