Working On The Toys
#1

Were running a bit ahead of schedule this week due to the dry conditions so i took the opportunity to head down the coast for a bit of fishing and to do a bit of work to my weekend cruiser "bandit".

The ute has been sitting in the shed for months waiting to get the bns treatment ha ha

Finally got around to getting the bullbar mounted and arials all wired up just in time for the nowra show this weekend i cant wait lol.

Like most project cars ive got a never ending list of thing i want to do.

But its the start of a bns ball ute and a never ending money pit ha ha

Just wish the fish would start biting lol

Thanks mate no more slow movers in the right lane ha ha.

I hear the marlin have been on the chew down your way.

Im just on the other side of the bay im fishing off murrys beach.

The oldies have a place at sanctuary point so i try to get down here as often as possible

But the fishing has been average since mid december.

Managed to get onto a heap of rat kings this arvo it was heaps of fun on light gear.

Only a little 253 with yellow terra heads, YT valve springs and Commodore valves, Supra 5 speed,  Twin 2 1/2 inch s/s exhausts.

 

I'm hoping to have it all painted and  back on the road with a new paint job this time next year.

This particular Saab engine.. *B,234* has a bullet proof bottom end..  They can take 700 Hp with standard rods..

At one stage, I had one of the quickest Saab's in Oz  ..I use the run 12's down the Quarter..  And this is from  FWD car  ...lol

The Supra 2jz engine (which is the best engine in the world) wont fit in the bay...Its too long..  This Saab Engine will eat most. and I also have 4 spare engines ..lol

I accidentally got into Saab performance...You would be surprised modification options there is  .. I import everything from either the states or the UK

This is my Old Saab 900 Taladega , Running a Garrett GT 2860 , Big injectors..  Stage 5 ECU ...  etc

This car is 2.0ltr, ran 12's and spun 1st and 2nd gear ;)

 

My Celica I'm building is bored to a 2.4 ...runs cams , Haltech ecu and has a turbo as big as my head and is RWD

I love the Celica ...the the last of the Old Skool Sports cars..

Saab engines were bullet proof through the 80's and 90's...After that G.M took over and they were #### ....the bottom ends are indestructible !!   That why they are excellent for big boosting turbo's  ...and they are very reliable ...  their downfall was the Gearbox's and being FWD

I bought this about 8 or 9 years ago.
Drove it 30mins home and put her in the garage.
The only time it has come out is when I moved house and to take photos to sell it.
Sold it on eBay but t the bloke didn’t pick it up.
Have to get around to selling it again.
Wouldn’t mind having the Ute in the garage
