MR GAS was my favourite car when I was about 14, I often wondered what happened to it. I'd love to find it and buy it if I could.

It was for sale a few years later for 40k and wasnt sold for about 18 months and he finally let it go for $8,000 affraid and i didnt find out till after it sold

If you flip back a page or 2 you'll see a real nice black XW (or XY) ute with a wing. That and this built and owned by Owen Webb - head paint judge at Summernats for like ever, pretty much runs House Of Kolor and there's not many people in the game that dont know him
It was THE stand out car of the Pro Street era

this was a bit of a landmark car that not a lot of people realise
It used to come to Jillys (Lansvale) back in the mid 80s and was owned by brothers that owned a small parts shop at Casla on the main road (i think it's an op shop now) and what makes it so special, aside from tha fact it was an all round kick ass car, was that it was the first street car to run coil packs.
I can still remember everyone standing around at Jillys one night trying to work out how he had the leads coming through the firewall and nothing coming out ot the dizzy

Thanks mate, by the time I finished scanning, resizing and hosting the pics I couldn't be stuffed filling in the details. Embarassed
I have lots more too. I'll get around to it soon.
The BDS Bronco was a weapon too. It ran a BB CHEV motor in it. Overkill ran at Oran Park drags a bit too. It was very quick.
I was a regular at Jillys too. We often showed up in a yellow RX4 and my red escort panno was there a bit too.
