Wow, long time since I posted on this thread. I have had too much problems with my turbo jetski taking up my spare time, then I swapped a fishing tinny for a v8 ski boat and the ski boat required a lot of work but now it's all running and usable again, then someone crashed into my wife's car so it's been a hectic 4 weeks or so.

Here goes with the next lot of pictures...finally!

This is one nice looking GOLD VLC v8.

I wonder if he's driving a classic Russian LADA bucket of bolts, that would be a far cry from his VL days.

This is a very interesting looking Playboy themed VL and I've never seen anything like it. I has a very distinct look and I like it for something different. Has anyone spotted this car in recent years anywhere or has it been repainted and now looks completely different???

Red VLC V8

This VLC was on the BoostCruising website in 2018 and owner at the time was HRTGuru, well actually it was his dad's car, some details are in the pictures I posted below. Great Car and appears to be original VL HDT LE.







---------- Post added 30-06-19 at 21:20 ----------

Correction - this was posted on BoostCruising website in 2010 not 2018.

Oh No! Sorry to see it ended up like that, so sad. Hope Hayden managed to get another VL of sorts.

Here are the pics of his wreck:

BADGAZ - NZ Cherry Black VL

This is one from over the water on the place call NZ.
It was owned and is maybe still owned by BADGAZ a member from CT.com
Very nice machine.


---------- Post added 23-07-19 at 19:50 ----------

All the window moldings are colour coded as well. What a very tidy ride this VL is!!! Looks like the owners name was Tom.



---------- Post added 23-07-19 at 19:53 ----------

I really hope this car is still on the road somewhere, it is awesome!



---------- Post added 23-07-19 at 19:58 ----------

Very good photography as well, taken at the perfect time of the day to show off the lovely lines of the car and the brilliant paint work. Well Done!

---------- Post added 23-07-19 at 20:01 ----------

Sorry, here is that last photo again, I messed something up with the last post.

[IMG]http://i65.tinypic.com/25***ia.jpg[/IMG]

---------- Post added 23-07-19 at 20:05 ----------

No, not my fault. It's either Tinypic messing up my post or something with the CT.com website as it keeps changing the image link which is making it not show on his forum. What's going on??? Have I reached a daily limit of photo's posted to this site or something??
