Very cool! What is it?
That is a radical EK.
Can't wait to see where you take it next.
Who built it, history?
looks like a amphibius(sp) car,does it float?
THAT is BEYOND cool.
It's frickin' awesome, whatever it is. Definitely would like to hear more details on this car.
Well, dont leave us hanging. Whats the story?!
Wow!! Nice score man!
we gotta here yhe details....................................k
That looks like something that we would see on Forgotten Fiberglass when G Hacker sends us an email on it. Very interesting car.
Ok guy's,this is what i know. The gentleman who owned this car has had it for 15 years.
it started life as a 1962 holden ek sedan (GM). He's been customizing cars since he was 18
years young, he's retired now.About 10 to 12 years ago he came round to my place with it
to buy some customline parts.That time it was a convertable with stock front screen and the rear boot(declid) was lengthen useing a holden bonnet.
Back in 2002 or 2003 photo's of it was published in an little aussie magazine called The Newsledder. When i pickedup the car i showed him and ask if he could sign the book.
The car had changed again with lower front wheel wells and a swage running the full length
and the doors were cut down so the bottom third was part of the body.
I saw it forsale about a year ago in its current state with its standard rear window as the front screen, tubing around the bucket seats,holden hd headlight buckets and the single/
twinspinner bullets have indicators setup in there... found out by misstake.
its running a straight 6 holden 186 ci with auto.
the onlythings that ive done is lower the back with 4 inch blocks and place 57 chev hood rockets in the grille.
Hopefully some of the other Aussies out there might have some info aswell or pic's.
Thats flipped out
Come on details man
Way cool ride. I may be wrong, but isn't that back glass tempered? A rock chip could make it explode. Might not be the best choice for front glass.
Whoa! Trippy! Look cool with a car bra!
Wow, Thats radical.
Looks like Ace Ventura sitting in it to go for a ride
thats all the fronts were anyway, never had a problem with the tempered ,the only screen Ive ever broken was a roll over they do make a mess when they go though
Really cool !!
looks like its going backwards. but id drive it anyway.lol is kinda cool on the wierd factor.
I donno guys, that's fugly to me
Maybe it's the color or something.
Looks like a carnival ride.
"Looks like a carnival ride."
That's exactly what I was thinking!
That is a one of a kind cool.
As my 24 year old Grandson would say...
THAT IS SICK !!!!
Talk about different...
