Nice!
I love the HK-T-G coupes.

Heres Dads HQ coupe (was mine but i cracked it when we had a whole lot of trouble with the police and vic roads when it came time to registering it). These are about the only pics i can find of it online but I'll get some more at some stage and post them up. These pictures were taken when i first got it home after buying it. This is what is was like before we did it up...

Its had a bare metal repray in 2pac by Kevin Pym of Pym Autos in Moorabbin. Spent nearly 2 years that I owned it off the road and it had been of the road for close to 10 years prior. The previous owner had done more damage than good trying to "do it up" and it was full of rust. I'll never buy a car in the dark again thats for sure!

So your a member of the monaro club of victoria as well then?

I've only used it about 3 times (I'm a grot and usually dont bother when I'm camping :mrgreen: ), but its ridden in the back of my car in my metal army chest bouncing around for probably 2 years now. Still works (well it did in December when I last used it ;) ) Flow is adequate but by no means great, and the only problem I had with it, was it didn't work once, I pulled it apart and put it back together again and it worked :? There's not much to them, and for ~$25 you can't really go wrong if you want a cheap/quick/small shower unit.


I'm the same - a bit of a grot, but the kids have a spongie and the wife would like a bit of a wash, so I might invest in one - see how it goes.
For $25, if it's no good, or it dies soon after, no great loss.

I looked at a couple of HQ's but they were stuffed, ended up looking at this one and since they had always been my fav, bought it! Always wanted a black one (with original 5 spoke Dragways) but have grown to like baby blue!

Not a member, never really thought about such things.

Ahh fair enough.

I'd love a HK 327 Bathurst... But with the way prices have escallated in recent years I think I'll be waiting a few lifetimes!

We are both memebers of MCV. It was one of the better car clubs but it seems to have gotten a little political lately

LMAO theres also the Helton - similar principle.

The Helton has the benefit that they will costom make larger units which is useful for diesel owners because they dont get as how as petrol vehicles thus the water temp suffers. So a larger unit mean the water gets more "contact time" with the heat source thus gets hotter.

The glind and the "Power shower" look better though.

Sure hope the blonde comes with it! I reacon even Kel would shake my hand if I scored her :P
