mikew's Comments:

I've had this LJ Torana Coupe for 13 years. I bought it for $800 to get me around while I was at Uni. It was just a cheap reliable car to get me around until I could afford something better. Well I never did find anything better! It's a bit different now to how it was then. This is my daily driver so along with the performance modifications are a number of comfort and drivability enhancements, like air con and cruise control! Not many early Torana's running around with air conditioning! It runs on straight LPG too which gives me a big smile every time I fill the tank! (LPG has an octane rating of around 100RON but is less than 1/2 the price of premium unleaded!!)
