Re: The classic/fave car thread
Reply #2 –
In the mid to late 70s, my cousin owned a genuine Harry Firth built LJ GTR XU1 with a 308 in it. He purchased it from a Sydney dentist IIRC, the car was registered in Canberra due to the problems registering them. When he took to it Melb, his then fiancé worked at old Motor Reg Board and she organised LJ-308 personalised plates for it. He eventually sold it as he needed the money to get hitched, the guy reportedly wrote it off. If that car was alive today, given the current car market for classic muscle cars it would be utterly priceless given the folklore behind the V8 LJ program that was scrapped by the Gov (A unicorn). I remember going for drives in, god damn it was quick.
