  1. Discussion thread First build thread so am still working out website. Hope everyone enjoys and feel free to add comments as am still learning so much about these crowns. Earlier in the year I had purchased my first toyota crown. I've been a long time toyota fan building them and playing with them since I was 16 (8 years ago). I brought it off a fella in Christchurch and coincidentally had a week off work at the time. So I spent the next week getting the thing a wof as it hadn't had one in 10 years. Its a mettalic blue Ms83 crown wagon. Rough around the edges but it ran, it dr
  2. Here is my new family wagon. It is a "mid-sized" A-Body Buick Sportwagon. (Similar to a Chevy Chevelle) High compression Buick 350 I used to have a WB Holden Ute, but the family expanded and I needed more seats. I ended up swaping my ute for the Buick The wagon has a few things to sort out such as get it a hellova lot lower but is generally very tidy. Stay tuned.

  3. Some people know, even though I've been all about keeping this on the downlow, but it's now time to make it official. I swing both ways, in fact I am properly batting for the other team now, well at least until I rekindle my old relationship... ...behind the wheel of my Commy. That's right, I've bought a Ford. Gah the shame of it all. So, after pulling apart the Commy last year for rust and consequently fucking around for the entire Wag-off season, I realised in November that it just wouldn't be right to turn up to Wagnats in a non-wag of the olden days variety. So I begun the searc
  4. Popped up on the Tard as a Trade-in Picked it up Cheep & is as advertised & what I bought, so not unhappy with it Plan on a Service & decontamination then some light Work Duties 2001 VX V6 3.8 Auto High KM's and tints : Perfect! if under what I was shopping for it will do for now Original NZ Owner was a Barry!

  5. Discussion thread here; ideas welcome. So things have snowballed. have sourced 4 H230 260c’s from different parts of the country in as many days. one is rust fcked badly. Three on the tree blue interior.8 seater. Second one is rusty plus hit a tree 6 years ago (rail twisted). Paddock special; dirty but pretty mint black interior 3 on the tree. 8 seater. 3rd one is so-so rust victim (so-so for a datsun is “oh no!” for other marques ) driven where it sits 5 years ago. 3 on the tree 8 seater blue interior. 4th was always going to be a pipe dream; was in WA (though m
  6. Hey I’m new to oldschool but want to share the entire build of my 1980 mk2 ford escort estate and thought this would be the best place to do so. We picked her up a couple of years ago so that I could have a project throughout my high school years.
  7. yeah g'day. so i spun a yarn at work saying i needed a wagon and something to move me furniture and go camping with. along came a chap with a friend who had 'this old wagon chilling at his place'. One thing led to another and i was dragging this old Crown wagon out of a tree. It's been sitting for 3 years, hasn't been turned on and is pretty well dormant. I chucked a fresh battery into it and she ticked over first try. Won't idle but i'm open to theories as to what would cause that - seems a bit trial and error at this stage. Will need a few parts here and there, but as it's a Crown,
  8. So with this year being the 10th Wagnats, I thought I might start a thread running down the list of the fore-runners to this years upcoming event. (or at least how I remember it - feel free to correct me) Old School Nats 2008 - Beta Test/Early Access It all started back in mid 2008 when I was a fresh face on the oldschool scene and I was invited to the 2008 OS Nats, which was being held as a camp out at Vinegar Hill for that particular year. I guess this was the equivalent of a beta test version of the event even though we had no idea at the time. Wagnats Zero - April 10-13 2009

  10. Now I know what you are all thinking, a granny electric in a KE70 chassis? Why would I do that? Truth be told I was originally planning to put a 3gse black-top into a KE70 but I entered an electric vehicle competition last year and won. I saw opportunity to have a project car and have it largely funded while doing something educational and different. So I toke that oppurtunity! I purchased a pretty run down 1983 ke70 wagon chassis complete with mismatched steelies, minimal bolts and every thing of worth stripped off. Which you can see below I did the usual firsts for projects: weight re
  11. Okay so i'm sure you're all familiar with this car.... I saw it on Trademe a couple of months ago and it wasn't far from home so i decided i had to have it. Got in touch with Jake and set up a time to go and have a look. I jumped in my ute with a mate and we head over. Eventually found the place, checked out the wagon and a after a quick driving lesson and loading up a ute full of spare parts we were off back home. The thing was so low it looked cool as fuck. But when my mate who was following in my ute said that it was throwing sparks out the back, and when I couldn't back it out
