I bought mine to use as a daily driver in 2001, but I was always really paranoid about theft, vandalism and shopping trolly scrapes. So for a few years it shared daily driver duties with a beat up FX...

Here's a good solution for you. Invest in another bar and lower spoilers, fit them to the car, and keep your originals in storage. Even though it won't be a cheap solution it might pay off for you...

It would be interesting to see if there's a gap in HSV plate dates between the late 400's and early 500's. Mine's too late a number to have much bearing on the discussion - number 700 with a HSV...

Everything I've ever read has said that they were built in two batches (500 + 250), but when you think about it that doesn't necessarily mean the extra 250 units were an afterthought. Perhaps they...

Hi guys,

My Walky needs new tyres for the first time since I've owned it, and before buying a set I thought I might as well check other owners' experience for recommendations. At the moment it's...

Lowering for the street! Wow! I manage to scrape the front and rear of my Walky up driveways from time to time even without the front spoiler extension on it;
