Well no-one else has posted so I'll be the first. Top marks from me on starting a Walky forum. They are one of the best cars ever IMO (theres nothing humble about that opinion). I hope to own one one day. Been in love with them ever since I saw one when I was 12 and couldnt figure out what the hell it was, neither could the rest of my family for that matter.

Have you let other forums know about its existance, I mean I know there wouldnt be the original 750 Walky's left but they still have a large, loyal fan base. Does SC forum or PF know about it?

Anyways all the best. i'll send in pics of my half walky VLT when its done for ya.

Hey guys.. Thanks for the posts.

Yes I have posted on Performance Fourms, and Street Commodores and a few others..

The site will get bigger over time.. I currently have about 4 cars waiting for pics or specs before they can go on.... I have had quite a few people e-mail me about the site, and that they have a walky, so hopefully more people will send info through and I'll put their cars up.

The site will grow, will just take a while.

Craig

Here's a suggestion for the build numbers page. There has to be the occasional Walky enthusiast and visitor to this site who's has the misfortune to write their car off. So that more cars can be accounted for on the build numbers page I reckon these cars should be listed too, with a notation that they're deceased. Anyone out there who's written their Walky off should send the build number in so the car can be accounted for.

It's a great site!!! Good work! This is my first post but what better place to have my first then in here right?
A registry would be good ie. A list of build number, it's plates and any interesting featues about it (mods coverage etc.)

There is a build page at the moment, which has the state, rego, build no and owners name. I will be adding a mods part shortly.

Thanks!! Im glad you like the site!!!

Do you have a walky yourself????

Have you thought about trying to start a Walkinshaw club? Australia wide might be a problem, but each capital city could have a branch.
Another idea would be to have a section for Walkinshaw owners, perhaps with insurance quotes from current owners, mods and results, etc.

good job on the site.

i got a suggestion for ya craig?

when ppl send in pics and mods can you get them to list where there mods,

bodykits, interior etc where done so us newer guys have some places to take our

stock vls and turn them in to WALKY copies...

also like the mag street commodores...

you could have sections like build periods, costs and the recomendations...

and maybe short stories on gthe projects...

like calaisturbo.

thanks mate...just suggestions...

but you have done a gr8 job so far

hey vlt-dreamer...

Thanks for ya imput... I'll take it onboard.

I don't mind doing stories on the cars, the main problem is getting people to tell me about the car!!

I find that people send me pics, and no info or info and no pics!! makes it difficult....

Hey guys ,everyone says my article on "cold-air with pics" should be on the main page .How would I go about getting this done! I think it'd be pretty cool to have it "up in lights" I'll write up the words a bit better if needed or you can.
Cheers
