    Australia, Land of the Giants

    Hey Leon, This would be a familiar site for you. Driving from Adelaide to Darwin you'd see 50 of these on the road on any day, but driving my Raptor home that I just picked up in Melbourne, I came across this guy on his maiden drive in his Brand new rig and he was proudly taking photo's of it at...

    Thanks a lot all of you for your nice comments, it's appreciated. Regarding your liftless upshift question Andy, I hadn't even thought about it. My Prosport Mulsanne had it via a micro switch on the gear stick, but I never gave this any consideration, guess I should have. Maybe I'll just do it...

    I'm back. Sorry Andrew, but no residual interest. ( thanks anyway ) Okay Leon, here is how we over came this next hurdle. I purchased a set of ICE LS 4300 coil packs and they pack a wallop! Managed to mount them out of site down low on the chassis. Then we pulled things apart and Clayton...

    Thanks for the compliments Leon and ditto to your build also. It's magnificent. I also want to thank you and Andrew for your responses on my Distributor issues.

    I have struck my next stumbling block. The Joe Hunt Magneto look Distributor is Dead on arrival. It's the authentic look that I wanted and set everything up to suit it. Looking at some website forums they don't have a good reputation. Probably Chinese sourced parts. So it's either a standard...

    Well I've finally brought my car home to my new property and new shed. Never again! They'll have to bury me here. It'll take another year just to get settled back in the shed Rod, let alone the property and house renovations ( my wife has along list ). Anyway, I borrowed my mate Clayton 's...
