    Nice Virage, J-Man. Shame about the new owners though.

    She actually put it on Gumtree with her other R12 a while back because she's just not in a position to do them up. If only I had more room so I didn't have to sell a car to buy another
    Apart from a rusty door and boot lid, the rest was very rust free, including mint front guards. Lots of good bits on it too, like tumble weed burning Narva H3 headlight conversion, Pedders re-valved front shockers with lowered coils, R17 sway bars and radiator, Dunlop mags etc.

    Lots of fond memories with that car.
    cheers,

    John

    Probably taken off the road because it's illegal, the accelerator pedal rubber is missing.
    I've always liked the later Virages with the quad headlights and the Dunlop mags are the duck's guts.

    Speaking of pedals, that shot is before I put my R17 pedal rubbers and metal trims on. Very fancy
    cheers,

    I'll try to find a picture of the yellow Virage ute conversion I saw for sale in Unique Cars a few months ago. Bloke in Queensland wanted 4,500 for it IIRC.

    The ute is/was owned by Denis Caplet from French Car Care. It has been built using mechanical R17G bits. So it goes pretty well being lighter than a normal car.

    Yes that would have to be Denis' car, unlikely to be two yellow R12 Utes in Queensland.
    It's a wagon that was converted to a ute, and done pretty well too.
    Don't know how it would handle with extra power up front and very little weight at the back.
