G'day to you all down under.

I am pleased to finally report that the Reek that I brought over to the UK with me is all legal & on the road.

Sailed through its MOT (rego check) and the best part is due to its age the road tax is Nil, zero, zip.

It's still as rough as guts on the inside & a bit (read lot) scuffed on the out side.  I'll post a few pics soon and maybe some onroad footage as well.

The V6 in the back is wonderful

Catch ya all later

Thanks boys,

To fill in the gaps, I brought it about 16 years ago in Rockhampton QLD, was yellow with Wattle Paints logos all over it.  I went on a holiday to the UK and ended up marrying one of them (as you do).  Settled down & shipped my reek over (10 years ago), which at the time had an engineers certificate just waiting for me to put lights on it & present it for a rego test.

So all up it took me 16 years 4 different engines, 5 different sets of tail lights, and 1000 changes in directions.  I've threatend to sell it, burn it, kick it & marry it in the time and the first propper drive was as sweet as.

Keep reeking

Whoa!
           Good stuff Bushy!
 What you've done with the rear louver is sex and the way you've stretched the top either side to blend down flush into the rear panel is excellent. Well done!

     Do the Poms get jealous of your high roof and elephant ears?

He's out there, somewhere, hoping to finish his reek before he's too old to drive it....
