Lekker Glen. I see youve got the look just right. Those twin tilt sunroofs may not be cool now but they were a must-have back in the day. Remember the quad headlight conversions? :lol: :lol: :lol: Heres what mine looked like back then. complete with those funky sunroofs. ;) ;)

not a big V6 ford kop , but none the less, awesome condition. I remember way back how the SSS bins used to give these things a hiding ;)
A datsun sss could never dream of running with a well-sorted 3.0 s and they knew it. Even the modded 2 litre escort conversions used to spank them. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Nice setup there Glen

Doesnt it run out of fuel with that mechanical pump?....

My car used to run out of fuel at about 4000rpm in 2nd gear......now with the 3.4 its even worse. (running a electrical pump now)
