HZ Kingswood Chev 350 2011 Accidental Burnout
This is my cars first day on the road after I first put in my new engine.
SBC/Chev 350cu with Supra 5 speed on the floor into a HZ Holden.
I puttered around the block in the first test drive. Then the mechanic who
shall remain anonymous got in to check the thermo fans were adequately
cooling...and this happened. He said "Sorry I didn't mean it" afterwards. I
believe him too, the commotion you can hear after me laughing like a fool
is his employee mechanics all shouting "whats going on" as thats not the
sort of thing he usually does.
Anyway...I love the car, love the Exhaust note, love the engine. Out on the open
road, it flies.
1973 Holden HQ GTS/4 350 Rebuilt - (Customised Replica)
Purchase a white HQ sedan with a 350 chev, T350 and 3.55 diff of a young
fella, who did not appreciate the car for what it was. So my brother and I
rebuilt the HQ from the ground up and during the complete rebuild there was
some strange factory 'oddities', if you may call it. From the 350 Chev
block casted 6 months prior to the build of the HQ in Australia
(Melbourne), with what it appears to be a munice hump welded in from
factory, Underbody shows no wear of smaller gearbox fitted in its life
time, Tyre Placcard states GTS rims and many other original features.
Before the rebuild tried desperately to get some knowledge on this very
build and the so call experts ignored it or laughed it off. I have my
suspicions to be what she originally once was, but if you watched this and
can shed some light on the HQ, please do. Also I know what all the tags
mean, I can read them like a book. In this matter its irrelevent, as I
believe the tags were to suit the new owner who did not want to pay the
insurance it attracted at the time.

NZV8 TV S3 Episode 5 - Powercruise, Holden HQ Kingswood, GP Hydroplaning - Part 1
On this week's show, we get down to the huge Powercruise event held
recently at the Taupo Motorsport Park. We have full coverage of the
Powerskids and all the Off Street Racing. It was an awesome event and it's
no suprise that's where we found this week's feature car -- a supercharged
Holden HQ Kingswood that had no issue turning rubber into smoke. After all
the excitement of Powercruise we needed to relax by the water so we caught
up with Australasian GP Hydroplaning champion Graeme Weller as he attempts
to set the World GP Hydroplane Speed Record.
