A roar from the track with Lion Batteries.

Lion Batteries Racing Tradie Series Ute Ford AU XR6

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some great news from the past weekend with the Tradie Ute series that Lion Batteries competes in. The Lion Racing AU XR6 tradie ute performed well all weekend managing to qualify second on Saturday morning, and then winning race 1 after a hard battle clinching the win over the Commodores and other Fords. Race two was marred with some tyre issues but still managed to finish in third.

On the Sunday for races 3 & 4 were both completed in second place giving them 2nd overall for the round which was quite a solid result.

Next round is late October at QLD raceway and if you’re in the area come and check it out.

Another visit from the 1960’s…

1966 Ford Fairlane GTA 390

 

 

 

 

 

The Ford Fairlane was meant to be the family car. But this 1966 GTA 390 Hardtop, with its back street racer looks, doesn’t seem to be designed to be the average family grocery getter. To check out other cars on our website, follow this link.

Bit of a Gee-up….

While a enthusiastic use of a g-clamp, it isn’t the sort of battery terminal clamp we normally like to see on a battery. Need some battery terminal clamps, cal ends and battery leads? Come see Absolute Batteries Toowoomba or give us a call.

There is nothing wrong with having a go yourself, but it is a very good idea to get expert advice if you’re not sure about what you’re doing. For those that don’t understand what is going on in photo, we have a positive lead (the red cable) tied to both the driveshaft (which rotates) and to the exhaust pipe (which gets HOT). If you’re looking at doing some repairs or modifications, you can get all the components and expert advice you’ll need at Absolute Batteries Toowoomba. We can even do the job for you if you don’t want to make catastrophic mistakes like our friend in the photo.

A new addition to our Wall of Fame.

1968 Holden HK Brougham

 

 

 

 

 

A customers 1969 Holden HK Brougham. Car has been in the family since new and is in original condition. The Brougham was basically a HK Premier with an extra 8 inches added to the length in the boot area (but retained the same wheelbase as the Premier).  It was powered by a 307 Chevrolet V8. A very scarce car as they only come out in the later half of 1968. Not many were sold as the Brougham faced very stiff competition from Ford’s Fairlane.
