EF Returns to Old Duties

Well the time has come around to let the EF go as it will be assigned to it's old duties as the family/work car.
Did the final detail wash/polish and final drive under my ownership this afternoon. Even showed abit of Inline 6 power against a modified R30 Skyline. Will still drive it on the odd occasion and do the odd servicing here and there.
Decided to keep the car within the family as theres sentimentle value in that EF Wagon.

So for the time being i willl be piloting a Silver 1998 EL Sedan. It's a step on the side for me really and i won't be planning to modify it in anyway. The EL is a stop gap until my next project.
Having said that the EL is a very nice car to drive.

For the time being my left foot will be idle for a while. And i'll try not to let the the sporty hub caps annoy me too much. :crazy1:

Yes definitly will miss the leaf springs and very sad to leave the position of lateral grip tester at LSUG.

Hey Gary,

How come you swapped the Ef for the EL?

As i've mentioned the EL is a stop gap until my next project. So theres no point in doing up or swapping stuff from the EF.

Basically the EF project is done and will stay that way, perhaps in years time i'll consider buying it back and keepin it as a classic.
