Made my day

Was out cruising in my recently rebuilt XY ute today, seems that some lucky sod in town has got his hands on Bolwell Nagari Mk VIII. ( a classic aussie sports car ) I was sitting behind him at the lights and some knob in a Wrx was along side the Bolwell obviously wanting to show his girlfriend how good he and his car were. Unluckily for him the guy in the Bolwell was willing to oblige, now I dont know if the Bolwell was running a 302 or 351 but i dont recall seeing a ricer being so badly decimated in a fair while, it was absolute poetry, there was this ricer wondering what the hell had just happened and where that sissy little sports car went. I still cant stop grinning

Re: Made my day

The number plate reads BN 302, so i am guessing it runs with a 302

I got me and XE with only 63,000 on the clock (originally). Her name is Schmick...

Re: Made my day

Sorry guys but thats not the actual car, I scanned that of a Promotional brochure I found at work, we get some materials from Bolwell Inc and of course we get calenders and stuff, I put it up incase some ppl hadent heard of the car, iv'e talked about them before and just got a blank look in return.
The really funny thing is if wrx guy had turned his Doof Doof down he would have heard the Bollie and probably realised not to mess with it.. He probably thought it was an MG

Re: Made my day

Sounds great. Only problem is, I don't know much about this car.

Got any info you can post? Would be appreciated. Looks great!
