    Default My poo brown vc

    Hey all

    I've been trawling these forums for a while now, gaining knowledge and putting it into practice while I can, so while my car is off the road I thought I'd take the opportunity to chuck some pics up of my pride and joy

    She's a 1981 vc commodore with a 5l 308 4 speed m21

    It's relatively stock, it's got a mild cam and bigger heads, and an upgraded ignition cool, that's about it really





    Right now she's off the road while I put a brand new fuel system in it. Got a 105 litre drop tank made. Every time I gave it a boot before I would suck whatever 35 year old shit that was in the tank, up through the carby and motor
    After that's done I have a new alloy radiator, pacemaker headers, an edelbrock air cleaner and a few other bits and pieces to go in

    Hope you enjoy
    Cheers guys

    Dan...

    Poo brown it certainly is. But I like it. I don't think I've seen one before.
    I would keep the stock radiator. My VH has it's original and never had a problem.

    A nice original old car Pieman, it looks great (pooh brown and all) , I wouldn't think there would be too many like that around especially if it's factory 308 4 speed.

    Guessing by booster-m/cyl it started life as a 6cyl

    Keep factory radiator just buy good brand...higher amp alternator vn-vs if not already with vr-s ecotech thermo

    or go tried & proven factory shroud/clutch fan.

    This be sweet with pacies & brocky cold air tray

    That's a tidy old bus, I like it.

    As others have said, stick with the factory copper radiator.
