Some know, most don't.

The Cressida that Shane from Gorilla Industries was selling was snapped up by myself and two handsome gentlemen; RZA Lewis (HuH) and Bridgy (Bridgy).

She is a proud old beast, with no less than 460,000 on the clock, poo brown interior, awesome factory off-white panels, and some excellent rust speed holes. Aerodynamics are the name of the game, amirite?

She arrived on the back of a fine old stead, who had travelled across the land to the rough - but fair - kingdom of Dundas.

The gutter shall remain her home, hence Gutter Garage. Why? Because I live in an apartment, and downstairs is already full of broken bits off my Skyline, and... sunlight rocks.

Last night saw the first activity take place in the comfy, fashionable and technologically advanced headquarters of Gutter Garage.

Ryan needed some new power window regs, so we ripped out the... old, and replaced with the perhaps even older.

I think it worked a treat.

But anyway, moar picherz.

Separated at birth in the motherland, the siblings are now rejoiced again, near thirty years later. There was a vibrant party; James Boags, corn chips, all the finest foods the Kingdom could provide.

These are the only glorious paintings we have, as of yet. More work will be carried out in the next few days, and I will spread my art over a blank canvas and share it with you, the dear reader.



Plans are:
Strip interior
Get a battery
Do a single pegger
Fix the leaking hose (not BHG!)

Further plans, are a manual box, a locker, and some sweet skid pan moves.

More to come.

Hahaha,

He is a mate from FNQ, where I was originally until I moved down to the excellent summer-weathered place that is Sydney. Walk outside in Cairns and you automatically are four shades darker.

Most likely mate, will probably just take the springs out and leave the absorbers LOL.

We have found a 5M manual conversion bar the clutch that is in a friend's MA61 that he had a 5M in, so we are going to most likely raid that.

i get a little smile thinking about the end result of what this car will be.

Totally want to see pics left over from the single pegger down the road too =D

Hahaha, single pegger of doom will be SO good. 5M will probably blow up, too.

I believe this weekend we will start stripping it, so will hit you up Dan! I got your number, will also send n00dz.

Nice work... :)

What are you's doing for wheel & tyre combo? Something stupid and miss matched I hope! :D

We haven't thought about the wheel and tyres as of yet. The tyres on it now are pretty decent, so will probably just wait until they are destroyed, and then look at something ridiculous.
