Post Local car and engine pictures for you guys

Hi,
Here are some pictures of the local street cars I took yesterday, the local car club put on a little show on and some of the local cruisers were there so I went down and took some pictures. Not all the pictures are uploaded as I'm typing this but they will be soon, if you get a bad link try the next picture for the moment, but they will all be there in a hour or so, also the pictures are about 500k each so it will take a bit to download them if your on a modem. There are a few Australian produced muscle cars in the pictures so there should be some things here you don't see often in the states, enjoy. I have heaps of pictures on print film that I could scan if you want to see some more

Yep but when you realise the Moon is upside down the Sun shines from the North instead of the South and the water spins down the plug hole back to front then driving with a wheel on the right hand side is totally normal : ) you should have seen how confused and disorientated I was walking around in the States I had no idea where North was or where I was going, very weird, I would look on a map and go right it's just up there North a bit then I'd walk South and not find where I was going :p

I haven't seen the sun in about 2weeks so seeing it come from north or south would be nice I'm not picky.

Nah, there is a travling carnival right there and some drunk person must have won the toy on a side show and then threw it on the ground on new years eve, What did you guys think about the HG Monaro? those and the HK-HT models are my favorite Australian car 1969-1971 Engine options were at least, Holden straight sixes 161 186 186s(two barrel with headers :p !) Holden V8's 253(V8) 308(V8) or Chev V8's 307, 327, or 350 plenty of options, The Torana Hatchback 1976-78? is another, it came from the factory with all those flared gaurds and the big reverse scoop and spoilers, 1200 kg (2640 lbs) with the Holden V8 installed, (Also the sedan 74-78) Another interesting car is the 1972 Valiant Charger that at the time was the most powerfull production 6 cylinder on the planet,Hemi straight 6 265 cubic inches and 300+ hp, it came from the factory with triple webbers, supposed to be good for 13 second quarter mile stock but with modern tires, I hear it's a bit of a hot item for Chyrsler car collectors in the states. And finally the Ford XY Phase 3 GTHO thats a mouthfull : ) it was a Ford sedan I know you have this same car in the states because I saw some of them in Mexico, but ours got the Cleveland which was Ford Australias V8 of choice from 1970 to the early 80's anyway the GTHO put out an underrated 400 hp and since it was built to win the production car race at Bathurst it had and insane top speed of 142 mph to handle the 2km long "Conrod straight". In the day it would smoke the old cross ply tires in all 4 gears with the toploader manual gearbox (they go much faster now with grippy tires), it would be about 25 years untill Holden finally made a car that had a bigger top speed

Here some Charger pictures

I once had one in this glow green colour below

And a comparason of the GTHO and the Boss Mustang

Hey! I was just joking about the anti-American thing. It is refreshing to see some different sheetmetal once in a while! I liked the comparison of your Falcon to the Ford Boss 429. Although, I don't think some of these Ford guys will! And, 118 m.p.h. for the Boss topend? It must have had 4.30's in it instead of the 3.91's listed.

I LOVE the Aussie Utes, especially the pre-war Willys!

Hey Those are great pics, but I was disappointed to see that when I opened the "trans am" picture it was actually a camaro.

The black one is a Camaro? Trans am was just a guess I thought every triangle shaped pointy nosed car had to be a trans am, since we never had either car in Australia there all Alien to me. But I have an idea what a Camaro should look like and that wasn't it, well tell me what year and model the American cars are and I'll rename them
