Jip like mikey said it was bought in as holdens but then rebranded as chevys, it originally came with a S L O W 4.1 straight 6, luckily we sorted out that problem


As for the rule book definitely wil get me one im planing on TRYING to go to Bonneville in about 3 years time - would take me that long to save up hopefully- but for nou ill see what the elco can do on the Kalahari flats......


Nico

In Australia, we only got a 3.3L(202ci) 6 and a 4.2 (253ci) V8 as well as the 308

3" steaks and Boerewors no doubt?. For you guys that don't live in South Africa it's a sausage that we barbeque.

We're big meat eaters here. grin grin grin

True story-- when I first visited NZ some time ago, I heard people talking about a NZ "football" team "The All Blacks". I thought it was a team comprised of only Negros. Honest!
