Hello folks, this is my pride and joy the soon to be reborn Group A BT1 VN commodore.

I've owned it for about 5 or 6 years now and it's been a looong painful expensive but joyful journey to get it to where it is today. I've suffered being T boned by a non insured red light running pensioner, a destroyed gearbox, and lastly a lunched engine but what doesn't kill it only makes it stronger. I still have many more plans for her in the pipeline, time and funds permitting. As it stands at the moment all that awaits it's impending re-birth is a new ecu, dyno tune and have the surge tank and fuel pump installed, this will be happening this month hopefully.

Well apon removal it was discovered that it never was a group A bottom end anyway. But it still has the Group A twin throttles to justify the bonnet bulge so still GRPABT1, just better Very Happy.

Meh electric windows weren't on the tax payer bill for cop cars back in 1989 fortunately. That said I don't like em and don't want em, I had a electric everything mazda 929 before this and every bloody window stuffed up. Power windows add weight too Wink
