Cool Greetings from New Zealand...

Hi All, I'm a long time Pontiac Enthusiast from New Zealand(you know where that is,right?) I spend most of my time over at the WARPed Tepee, but this place seems like fun too, so I thought I'd join up.
Cheers,Shane(Pontiac Pete)
:Poncho

Cheers back to you too.

Do you know Don Wood? He bought some stuff for his pontiac Race boat the other day. Very nice guy.

You guys must have deep pockets over there or a couple of loose screws to buy Pontiac parts over here and ship them there. The import duty was 100 percent and a 12 percent tax on top of a 165.00 dollars to ship 9 lbs.

The sheep business must be good,

If you know Lester Guthrie of Victoria, Austrailia, tell him to get a computer. The phone calls are killing me.

Hi Bob, No, I don't know Don Wood but I have heard of him. We don't have deep pockets (at least I don't) but may be we do have a couple of screws loose

:Nuts

The V8 scene down here is dominated by `The Big 3' just getting a Pontiac or other`off brand' to be competitve on the drag strip is an achievement.

You are correct with the cost of parts, I bought some rods off Pontiac Dude a couple of years back that were $399.00 US dollars cost me $1400.00 NZ dollars landed:Eek

Don't know about the sheep business, the most I have to do with sheep is grilling lamb chops on the BBQ

Not all of us, only those who think that running Ford stuff is `daring to be different'

Thanks Bill, It was actually one of your posts (your last one I think) over at PZ that lead me here:Cool
The post I'm referring to is the one where AXhole basically said you weren't welcome on his site, that was enough to put me off posting on PZ.
