here are our cars.


Mine is a fairly standard 72 model 1600.


Atm its got no head after a blown headgasket and im deciding what im going to do...either a ca18det conversion or build up a NA weber'd l18 which would cost alot less than the conversion.


Its got some suspension mods such as aftermarket std height springs, koni rear shocks, crappy monroe fronts, adjustable frotn sway bar.

I like those 510s and Austraila/Been there 23 times and LOVED it. and the women too.


Thanks hainz, next time you come down come to melbourne and attend the ozdat thursday night pizza function :P.


can you get me a non-turbo CA intake manifold? (RWD style)


Could probally get you a turbo one...Is it that hard to get ca18 parts over there to make it worthwhile getting it from aus?
