    Hotrods

    Does anyone know the legalities on building a Hotrod in WA?
    They seem to have a lot more leniency in regards to modifications allowed/
    agrid?

    One owner. Only driven gently on Sundays. Sold to best offer. First to see will buy. Reward offered for safe return. Coming soon to a cinema near you. Available for a limited time only.

    My waterbed broke this morning. Oh, I don't have a waterbed. Bugger.

    Mine was registered fifty years ago. They were real lenient then!

    I get the Western Link emails from Eric Warren, they always have the appended note. I'm thinking membership allows for more realistic inspections.

    westernlink@westernrodder.com

    NOTE: *** TAC Inspection Bookings

    Bookings are made via Frank Di Virgilio
    Use his mobile number 0417 662663
    NB: Book at least two weeks before your check.
    NOTE:
    Ensure you have the current rego papers and Application to Build Forms in your rod at all times.
    That way you will have them with you on inspection day...No papers, no inspection. These are DOT rulings that the TAC are obliged to follow. No complaints or exceptions... trust me on this one.
    Ensure that you have a Dept of Transport permit
    to test drive hot rods on their 3rd inspection,
    even if trailered to the check.

    You're the second person that has suggested a 2JZ and as much as I like the idea, I really have a hankering for a V8 and the 1UZ lends itself well to a blower further down the track.
    Plus, it's a hotrod, a 6 cylinder just isn't right.
    If I was going to do anything other than a V8, it would be a 1GZ-FE, but that would just be stupid money.

    It's a 5.0L V12, the 1UZ is 4.0L ally block, the 2UZ is a 4.7 cast iron and the 3UZ is a 4.3 ally block.

    I just want the V8 sound, but replacing the red motor with a 308 or similar, in a spot made for a flathead four, would be a nightmare.

    But I really want that V8 sound....

    There's an engine, transmission, ECU, loom, front seats plus enough leather to do the rest of the interior.

    This is pretty much what it boils down to.

    Yep, but I presume you can put them in the proper way around with modification. It's the smoothest, quietest engine I've ever heard. They can sound good with a proper exhaust.

    When you do that... do you need to convert it to RHD?

    Link to regulations?
