thanks for the comments..... Lets just say VQ_Stato had "issues" with that race...I ran a 14.9 in that one.

I've had the car for a bit over 3 years... it had 85,000kms when I bought it

Hopefully I'll get some pics of our SL/E up eventually.

Very nice SV mate. The one next to yours at the drags looks familiar too. Do you mind me asking how much you paid for it? It looks mint. Mine is number 244. Happy motoring. We should catch up at a cruise or show or whatever.

I don;t think I'd be game to put mine anywhere near yours.... it might scare it!
I bought it a bit over 3 years ago with 85,000kms on for a bit under $20,000....

yours still looks very clean and original. I have a sweet spot for those wheels. Yes we should all catch up some time. Mine is off the road for a while as it needs some more engine work. Once again TUFF car. I paid around the same as you did, but last year with more K's.

Funny thing about this car is that I wanted to buy it many years ago when it first came into Cars Galore in Toowoomba. Shane Brown decided not to sell it and kept it for himself for about 3 years, then one day I saw it advertised in the paper and basically went straight up and bought it from him......

It has a bit of wear on the driver seat from getting in and out but hopefully I'll get that fixed some day......

I've only put 6000 kms on it since March 05......
