I know this forum is almost dead, and it's only on a whim I came to check it out.

For those of you who remember my username, I'm sorry I left so abruptly, life threw me some curve-balls. For those of you who don't know me, I'm sure you've read some of the posts/answers that I put up here.

Sadly my time as a VN owner came to an end back in 2015, there were some MAJOR issues with the beast that I had built and I was gifted another car, one much more fitting to my time in life (than the 296kph VN that I had built) on the condition that I sold the VN. It sat in my driveway for a long time, until a friend of mine took it off my hands.

Technically he wanted the 5sp gearbox to put in a WB, so I sold him the gearbox for $300...on the provision that he took the whole car. The WB is still on the road, with my worked S1 VN V6 motor and gearbox in it. So that is something to be happy about.

In the time since I last posted on the forum, I got married, became a father, built a house, travelled around Australia, sold a house, moved interstate, bought a house and changed careers, twice.

All that said, I still miss my old VN (who doesn't want a car that'll spin the wheels in 3rd, and spit fire on downshifts?), I've kept a lot of the "rare" pieces I acquired (eg. the full set of GM workshop manuals) while I owned it. I see less and less on the roads, and would dearly love one as a project car to build up to the monster that I had.

Stay safe out there, look after the VNs that you still have, even the old poverty-pack ones (like mine, complete with the brown interior) can be made into mean street machines with a bit of time, effort and knowledge.

To the old hands that helped me with mine, when I was new to VN ownership, thank you. It was a wonderful community to be accepted into, and it was a great culture to be part of.

Never know, I might check in on the forum every now and then, just in case someone wants to ask an obscure question. Support Forums © 2005 - 2023 Go To Top Of Page
