I have a buyer for the Sylvia for the same price we paid (who also wants to race).
The Bluebird will be capable of competing in the 2 Litre class at the Jack Young Motorsport Park at Bridge Pa, and Hillclimbs & Sprints as well, instead of just the BOS class (BOS = Bucket of shit. No really - it actually does!!).
I have also just acquired manifolds, turbo, injectors, throttle body and ECU, which should increase power output by a decent amount (though with the 2L being a CA20, I suspect 6lb of boost will be my limit before I start damaging the bottom end).
Not sure if my next race will be in the Sylvia or the Bluebird - depends if I get my new gearbox put in the Bluebird in time or not (Bought car with semi-rooted gearbox, and another good gearbox at the same time).
With a D-class club car (1601cc - 2000cc), I can race about 12 events before the end of the year! Woohoo.
I have a sponsorship proposal for the Bluebird if anyone is interested (All events on my calendar are Hawkes Bay only - so out of towners probably wont be interested). I have sponsorship opportunitys from as little as $50 for 12 months (Every little bit counts).
Update: Heres a photo. Not too bad for a few hundred dollars with a reg+wof! Since this pic, it has been debadged. Unsure to what level I will strip the interior (until I put a cage in, then all carpet, and everything rear of the B pillars will go).
Hoping to paint it bright yellow, or black... havent decided yet.
Nowhere near as fast as the 400hp+ Commodore though!!
Oh-so-grainy images with awful colour taken on a Nokia E51 2MP.

Is that a NZ assembled model? I used to have an Aus assembled one of the same shape and it had a CA20, but I was under the impression that all of the others were fitted with SR20s.
