    Thats gonna really shift with the LS1.


    I like the holden ute. When I was in OZ they were every where, I`m always surprised they aren`t more popular over here. I`ve got a 99 camaro with the LS1.

    Thats gonna be an incredible truck. Good work.

    Incredible aren't they? When I did the same job on my '60 Impala no matter what order you re-assembled them something was always in the way for the last remainihng bolt head.
