DOSE IT 's new home

Hey guys.
Thought id break the news.
Matts beautiful old Calais know as 'DOSEIT' now lives in my garage,picked her up this morning from Hamilton.
Shes a bit worse for wear since Matt let her go but ill bring it back up to scratch.
Its going to be my daily driver so wont be doing any huge mods or anything.
Plains are LSD,R33 gear box,Turbo,mailfold upgrade.As $$ allows.
Then bring on power cruise.
It did come at the expense of selling my ute but i had to save the VL.
Matt was a happy camper when i told him.
Guy bought it off was a top bloke with and HJ hes had for 26 years,an EH wagon,VK daily aswell.
Catch yas later
KJ

Of course you will always have a seat in DOSEIT,and get some wheel time aswell for sure,guess ya cant on the track but you can terrorise Taupo streets ha.
Yea looking at body this morning is a bit sad,shes in need of panel and paint,quite a few nasty dents.
The front left is worst curbed wheel,even took chunk out of tyre,rear rim has small curbing,right pair didnt get any punishment.
Catch ya

Well its got the two in drivers door,roof has bout 4-5 small dents,bonnet has dent from closing bonnet with spanner sitting on inlet manifold,nasty square dent on top drivers guard,dent in rear end beside tail light,tail light was broken at same time,creased the plastic bumper aswell without smashing it which is unusual for VK/VL bumper.
Other than that shes not too bad,and these dents arent that bad,im just being picky.
Had heaps of awesome comments bout it already,im already avn the problem at parts shops with guys saying theres no such thing as a RB30ET.dumb asses!

DR30's had the FJ20ET (i think), and some Jap R31's had the RB20ET, The RB30ET was exclusive to Holden.

wrong and wrong lol

Some Jap assembled R31's had rb20et...Others had 20e, 30e, 20det (early redtop version) and so on...

As Steve mentioned earlier, VL's were the only car to have rb30et's
Holden purchased the rights for the engine, which is why you dont see it factory fitted in any other cars.
