Brand new LE Monaro 14 inch rims for sale on ebay

One of the main problems when restoring a LE Monaro is trying to source dress rims, especially brand new ones.

Luckily there’s a company in the United States that sells what I think are reproduction units on ebay. I haven’t bought them so I’m not 100% sure if they’ll fit ok, but might be worth a shot!

I also bought some brand new centre caps for about $100 last year. I use a company called www.myus.com where I ship the products I buy from eBay or Amazon to them in the United States and then they on-ship them to me in Australia. It does look like these sellers will ship to Australia so it might be cheaper to go with direct shipping from them.

Hope this helps!

Club registration

I was down at San Remo, Victoria (the little township before you head across the bridge to Philip Island) over the Christmas break with the Fam.

There was a car show with heaps of old fords and monaro’s etc, plus a bunch of American muscle cars.

I saw quite a few cars with Club registration and it turns out that it’s a lot cheaper to join a car club and then register your car with Vicroads. You can drive your car 45 times a year for any purpose which is about 43 times more than I normally drive the car annually. Having just shelled out almost $700 for normal registration in November, Club registration is an excellent option!

I’m in the process of applying to the Victorian Monaro Club – the only issue is I don’t have a nominee! If anyone out there could let me know if they’d be ok to act as a nominee I’d be really grateful…

Hi Chris,

Um please help! I have been the proud owner of a LE Coupe now for 18 months, it is in excellent condition throughout, my dilemma is the identification plates have been stolen sometime in its history, I know, your thinking silly me but i bought the car on the understanding that i could call Holden and state the engine and chasis numbers to obtain some sort of plate or paper stating the cars aurthantisity as i have a friend who said it is a common problem with the Mustangs as well and Ford can help (knowing of an occasion).

Well i have called Holden on two occasions and both times have been told that they require the vin number to start the search but obviously this plate is missing, their only advise is to contact the clubs and ask if they have any records but sounds like I’m getting the run around, I don’t see why they couldn’t search by the chasis and/or engine numbers. It is a real shame as the car is very clearly a genuine LE, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks Kel.
