Hi all,

My name is Dale I'm on the Gold Coast here in Australia. I work as a spare parts interpreter for an independently owned parts store but have been around cars, working in mechanical workshops and building my own drift cars or friends drift cars for years. I've been going through the engine building course slowly and recently purchased the wiring course as well. Below are my current Daily drivers and Projects feel free to comment about them I'm always up for a chat.

1990 R31 Drift Car (my first car and drift car currently on a jig in my shed for seem welding) Had a kid run into me and near write is off so I decided to build it into a tube front and rear pro drift car.

1999 Au Falcon (my current daily/budget drift car while I build the other 2 cars)

1999 Au Fairlane (my most recent purchase to tow my cars around and shares the same parts as my daily which helps)

1998 R34 GTT 4 door factory turbo manual (Mrs current daily and reliable family car for my daughter)

and lastly

2001 V35 4 door (undergoing a 700 hp nitrous LS based build as a street/drift car and the reason for starting these courses)

I've always had a thing for building cool cars and one day hopefully owning my own business doing just that.

Welcome to HPA Dale.

Those are some interesting sounding projects, would you fancy making a project thread or a few, the R31 and V35 sound good

yeah mate I'm keen for that once I finish moving house and get some pics sorted I'll make a build thread on each thanks for the interest.
