Hello - here is a few photos of my collection:

Red ute was my second car I owned (first was a Gemini Station wagon - hence the interest in Isuzu's)

I still have it today and will probably never sell it.

After 10 years in hibernation - I have finally got off my arse and got "Red Back" on the road: 131k on the clock 1990 VG Commodore S Pac Ute.

Complete new fuel system: tank, pump, lines and injectors............ouch.

Please Note: Do NOT leave Premium Unleaded in fuel tank or system and store a car for any amount of time!!!!!!!!!!

Change all fluids (brake, radiator, oil, diff, gearbox.

Check EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!! TWICE

Register and drive, drive, drive.

Hey Josh,
Unfortunately the HR has been sold, as well as the VP sedan as well. I ran out of room :(

I enjoyed working on them both and miss them in the stable. Truthfully registering them all was a nightmare at about $750-$800 each a year.

What, no historic rego in NT? Surely!
In NSW now we pay $46 per year, CTP incuded, and we can drive for 60 days for any purpose on top of club runs. Bargain!
Only problem is I only have 4 cars on it at the minute, but more to come! Next is Dobby the Elf.
:D Matt.

Hey Farmer,

Yes we have Club Rego up here - Stinky is registered that way - It costs $90 a year and same 60 days with a log book you must fill out prior to each drive.

I had the HR on Club Rego as well at the end of me owning it. I bought it for $1000, took the motor out and cleaned up the engine bay with a bit of paint, drove it for 3-4 years then sold it for $3500.

It was a great car to drive.
