New oval body but you are the proud owner of my old car "Gladys" ;)

otu88y - August 16th, 2012 at 03:17 PM

Yeah I was actually reading the post of the old cab before.. He used to live up the road from me in Carrara that's how I found out it was up for sale!! Was a very tidy car back in the day.. Saw a photo on his wall of when it was red/maroon!! So nice.. But I do love the "rat" look!!

MISS VDUB - August 16th, 2012 at 03:19 PM

I love the rat look too, hence why I own El Concreto :)

Action Day is always a great day, just a perfect location and the weather is usually spot on too.

5lam - September 4th, 2012 at 02:29 PM

Good to see the new owner on here. I was devo'd when Kristen offered it up for sale.
Keen to see it on the road!

otu88y - September 12th, 2012 at 10:52 AM

thanks slam.. yeah i was pretty shocked when he put it up for sale... hence why i jumped at it... its coming along pretty well.. i was hoping to take it to wynnum on the weekend but unfortunately the shananigans the night before was too much to wake up that early.. although i did make it up there to check it out... there were some pretty cool rides there and pretty keen to bolt on a blower or some turbo's now.. but we'll have to wait and see..

PS.. absoloutely love el concreto.. :tu:
