    Looking for people with the 5th Anniversary cars

    Does anyone know someone with a 5th Anniversary VP, preferably in SEQ

    I have a Maloo and i'd like to one day meet up with others and maybe do a photoshoot.

    A Stato? Geez they're rare, my brother in law wants one of those really bad. Can I ask how you came across it and the cost?

    Pics?

    Think this one was from Melbourne. Back in the late nineties was looking at buying build No 7.
    They are a nice machine.....

    I got it off a friend for a great price, needs some work. All the trim is original and in great condition. The car its self is very original. To be honest i do want to post photos of it until its restored. The car is to rare to post poor photos. in due course i will start a thread and post some great pic's of her for all to see.

    A couple of questions for the 5th anniversay fans. Looking at a rebuild for my vq statesman. Found a place in Sydney which has quoted about $5500. can anyone recommend a good trustworthy engine rebuild shop. Drive in and out?

    Haven't forgotten. Will email you photos once I take some. No series 2 badges on front guards either, they are 5000i badges. Also leather seats. Think I read somewhere you mentioned yours weren't leather?? My heater is turning on randomly like it's possessed. It turns on even if climate control is off and stays on. Or if I have the climate control on, it stops working. Push the buttons and it does nothing. It then randomly starts working again. Any ideas?

    Not sure who to use in Sydney, but $5500 sounds reasonable for a full rebuild including R&R. Maybe put a SV5000/5000i cam in it to give it a smidge more oomph while you're at it?

    Thanks for that. Yeah I thought $5500 sounded ok. It's the 5000i that I have so will definitely get a little work done. Just trying to keep it fairly stock. Flat top pistons should give it a bit more. Thought about stroking.
