B-man (og) Still Here - Question For Prank & Others.

Recommended Posts


I haven't been around for a while - but I still remember my SAU username and password - so here I am

Question - Is Prank (Christian) still running SAU ???

Reason I ask is that I would like to ask him permission to do a shameless plug for a new auto/motor sales website I have just built and want to promote (cheaply). It's been a hobby think of mine for a while now - and I think it's ready to let loose into the Aussie Market......

On to more interesting things - my favourite topic - ME !

I've moved to Adelaide, I'm married now, have 4 kids and haven't had a Skyline for ages BUT I still have the car bug bad and have had (un) invested heaps of cash in a few interesting ones.

You may have heard about my 400kw Mazda Cosmo with a worked 20B and HKS turbo - I sold it to a young Asian Lad who wrote it off a week after he bought it.

Then there was the BMW 7 Series - thought I would go Gangsta with a thumping 4L V8 - was a great car - but way to exy to maintain

Then I switched to the dark side - Ford Focus ST225 which I modified with exahust , ecu etc - it was fun , but Front wheel drive.

Next - and still current is my 1990 ST185 GT-4 Celica - it is a BEAST and is turning into my dedicated track car - Fully forged motor Garrett GT3076 turbo, 700cc injectors, Adaptronic, Wilwood brakes, Coilovers, etc etc - all the good fruit - 250 all wheel kilowasps -

Daly Driver is an HSV Clubsport with some fruit on it - auto - fun to drive , and I love the sound of a V8 - it's nearly as good as and inline 6..... I'm gonna put a massive cam in it to make it sound and go much better.

That's the update from me

And if I have sparked your curiosity - check this out:

Yes Prank is still the head. I'd simply PM him and see...

B-man, send a PM to fellow old-schooler Nick (Blitz), I think he deals with SAU traders and such stuff.

Oh, and weren't you building an FJ-powered S12 Silvia/Gazelle?

OK well quick story of the S12 with the massive FJ20ET conversion goes like this:

Bought the car for $1200 - drove it around stock for a bit

Then S13 front end suspension and coilover upgrade

Then I found an FJ20ET motor with Haltech ECU from a a wreck for super cheap

DId the conversion

Upgraded the diff to a proper Detroit locker for max traction -

Took it out for a run pinion gear in dif locked (suspect no or lack or oil in diff)

Purchased R32 rear subframe

Workshop said all labour it would be nothing cause the pinion gear should not have seized (it wasn't actually their fault, they outsources the diff alignment to a (so called) specialist

Sat in workshop for 5 years

Got sick of waiting for workshop to fix it

Sold it half finished for $1500

Total loss on this one - peanuts compared to the Silver Skyline and Blue 20B Cosmo

The Celica is a BEAST though - I am stoked with it's transformation - if I ever get a chance to bring it back to Sydney, make sure you come see it - Massive Engine, Massive Brakes, Massive Suspension, Massive everything - I'm even thinking of putting a PPG dog straight cut gearset in it -

Good to see you're still around and well B-Man! You always had some interesting project cars.

I think most of the old crew is still around, just not that active these days
