    It's almost there.... But then it's been ALMOST there for a couple of years...
    Started on the dash rewire, got all the stuff to put the new alternator on, then it's just the wheels and sorting out the steering shaft.
    probably won't make it this year... :-(

    Hi Russ and welcome to the site. Love the 55 and some great pics there. Seems to be a really good scene in NZ?

    Well it was last year, and still there as far I'm aware.....good drag strip....I like the way the local council
    named the road leading down to the strip ( Drag way Rd )

    Bry,ive had a few upside down guys on my crew before,sometimes when were doing a thrash at night but on race day its not usually till after the meeting.Zody,the 57 would fit right into the scene down here,we got heaps of tri5's here,real popular.Cheers Lucky,Invercargill's right down the bottom and it'd be f'n cold there right now.Its no wonder Burt wanted to go to the states...BlownT,how you going mate.I had a 33 coupe that i raced at meremere 87-88,blown 408 bbc,matt black,ran low 10,s you might of seen it,only raced one season,sold it before i crashed it.It was to dangerous for a street car but man it was fun.What are you driving at the moment?
