Shit Josh, it's a pity we didn't meet a couple of years ago, I drove Gemini's for 20 years, I used to HATE them until I drove one then I realised why all the kids drove them, they are SUCH FUN to drive and to modify. If you know Elky it was my 20 year collection he bought about 2 years ago (I ran a tow truck for a couple of years and managed to score some good bits and pieces, always in and out of auctions, wreckers and peoples back yards, it is amazing what you find)...Same can be said about KATANA's. cheers Josh, thanks for the memories.

Looks like fun alright! Stock gemini? Impressive! I drove my brother's once when he had one... lemon yellow... and the thing was a lemon... gutless wonder after driving my Peter Wherrett special 2.6L Sigma at the time :D

:oPeter Wherett, that's a name from the dark past...as a road safety advocate didn't he get disgraced with a Drink drive charge? (or something naughty) AND didn't he put a 2.6L sigma engine into a 4 cylinder Holden Commodore and claim it was THE CAR we all should/would be driving?:confused:

It is a shitload of fun! Abit wary of pushing too hard as a bloke drove his wrx wagon to the track on sunday and wrote it off. I don't want to destroy the gem as they are getting hard to find.

old ferret face, torque was top show in the day, shame he turned out a hypocrite and a bit of a panto...
thought toranas were more his thing...

Smart move Josh, as long as you're having a blast at whatever pace you're doing, who cares? It's the fun that counts right?

As for PW... yeah didn't know much about him at all, the Sigma was the right price at the right time... but she went pretty good for a Sigma! 2.6L with a set of headers, four wheel discs, alloys, Recaro seats, and I beat a number of Toranas and Cortinas off the line but got my butt handed to me by a fast back VW. Even got a Commodore or two surprised :D

Oh to be young and stupid again... well young anyway... don't think I grew out of stupid :D
