Very cool Oz! I love Elcaminos and that is even nicer.

One guy on the CFD had a GTO that was pretty wicked. He added headers and a few things and it really responded well. Your Ute reminded me of it when I first saw the pic's. Good to hear it's on a similar platform. Pontiacs were always my favorite cars.

I haven't forgotten about the video of the ute, just trying to find time. One good thing is, my wife bought be some 20" rims so it means that I get to annihilate the ones that are on it now.

Wife buys you wheels/tires .  .  .  She's "understands" and is definitely a keeper !  Awesome job !

Looks great !  First your wife buys you wheels and tires, now she buys you a personalized plate.  She sounds pretty awesome .  .  .

The second pic is actually the first pic. The 20's picked the arse up a little and levelled it out perfectly. I may end up going coil overs all round at some stage, time will tell though.

On a side note, I'm unsure if anyone remembers my old twin cab Hilux that I was building with the 40's? So called "mate" ripped me off for close to $10k and I was left with nothing. Enter this:


It's the Surf I've been using for a while now but the head gasket has let go and it's now just sitting in the garage doing nothing. Until it start parting it out and cutting it up! Plans are to use on the body and chassis, everything else will be sold off to fund new bits (even the dead motor is still worth good money as the turbo setups alone go for over $700 second hand). Picked up some Nissan Patrol diffs, will be 4 linked front and rear, alloy Rover V8, auto and transfer. Cage, some 37's and its ready for social wheeling.

That's a tough thing to work through !  But it sounds like you've recovered.  Good luck with the build .  .  .

Indeed! It's a 10min drive from my front door. My main beach break surf spot in in that pic, about 1/2 a mile up the beach.
