    Hey,

    Here's some pictures of my car that i bought last Friday, a 1986 5.0L V8 VL Berlina. It runs bloody nice but it's completely stock at the moment (soon to change).

    Outside pics, you can see it's pretty rough etc but i plan on painting the bumpers white (i'm too poor to buy a kit atm, i'm only 16 1/2) to clean it up a bit

    Interior is extremely clean, only 2 tiny rips in the seats but they're not noticable from a far

    And then there's the messy engine bay, lol

    Some of you may notice there's no belt on the air conditioner. Air-con at the moment isn't working (problem i've had with all my 3 commos) and the idler pully bearing was rattling/squeeking so it was taken off.

    Cheers

    Holdens are made by GM, hence GMH (general motors holden) and are most probably based off that shape except;
