    Including the new Kardinals PLaques from O'Brien truckers!

    hey maiki....license back in 4.5 months???? whats up with that? your new parts are going to look cool on there. man! dennis sure does nice job on them club plaques huh? that thing looks sweet! good luck with the alterations and repainting, don't forget the pics son. later, mike

  5. That is solid Jackson. Is Holden related to Vauxhall? They are both partly owned by General Motors as I remember. Has a reseblence to 55-57 Chevys but I also see late '50s Buick styling hints too. Or maybe I'm just utterly wrong about that. How rare or common are they?

    How old is the paint? You get more intense sun than most of the US I beleive. UV is not to be toyed with.
  6. Holden is GM in australia.
    We make the Holden Monaro (badges pontiac GTO in the USA) etc.
    Build lots of rear wheel drive v8 sedans...

    and our UV is pretty bad.
