A couple of my mates have seen an S12 "rally car" driving around the inner eastern suburbs of melbourne.
The car is regulary seen on malvern rd and has a red white and blue paintjob.

Just wondering if anyone on here has seen or knows anything about this car.

Its not the one he posted on here if thats what you mean, i saw it leave BP in glen iris the other day while my sister was driving my car , i tried to make her chase it but she wouldnt :o

All i know is it sounds na (possibly fj20), has a cage, the paint appears to be sanded back and the body needs a bit of work.

Gee that's interesting as Feral Errol (of datrats website) in Victoria had a red mkII original ca18det coupe he bought in from NZ, that he was trying to sell ages ago, I wonder if that's the car?

iv'e only ever seen 1 gazelle drivin on the roads. so no i ain't seen a rally car

excluding my cars that is. (which also is technicly a mates car) any of you guys want to set up a cruise ? i can get 2 maybe 3 of mine on the road with drivers. we could do a lesurely eastern suburbs cruise and end up in a playground down south of franga.

let me know, i go on a mini cruise or games nights once a week.

catch

All my gazelle's are gone, but i have a stock S14 sunday driver.

One of my mates saw a red gazelle with "factory turbo badges" parked in a street near his house. it has also been spotted driving around the malvern / caulfield area. maybe this could be feral errol's old car

well i wouldn't say my engine has been "worked" my s12 is just a pretty much stock cruiser except for rims and paint and all brand new suspention. but my paint looks sh** now including the Rust spots and the lovely addition a fellow shopper put on my front bumper, a nice big hole from a tow ball!!
