    NSW Historic and Classic Vehicle Rego

    RightO, So I ended up joining the NSW Historic Muscle Club. The process was fairly straight forward all in all: Got a blue slip done for the XE signed up & paid membership to/for the club online and had a form sent to me filled out said form sent said form to the club along with my engineering papers, ID, car photos. In return they sent me a Historic vehicle form with the required signatures etc, which is technically the wrong form. But the RMS didn't seem to care. Took all this to the RMS with my old plates. De-registered my full rego and filled a few forms to move on to the classic vehicle scheme, got some plates and it was all done. All up the process took about a week in total and about $200 including club fees, rego, greenslip, admin fees, plate fees. Next year the plate fee drops off, so lets' call it $150 moving forward.

    NSW Historic and Classic Vehicle Rego

    The truth is, I don't want to be part of a club in the sense of attending events and drives etc. But am more than happy too document my experiences for others, share knowledge online and interact forum style. Therefore these are the clubs I have contacted so far who might fit that bill: Custom Car Club Temporarily stopped taking new members 18 March 2019 Online Form, with pictures does not appear too fussed with attendance $90 membership fee Eastern Australian Drivers Club No online form, but quick to respond on Facebook. Dude was was holiday, but wanted too see a blue slip + inspect the car in person [Direct quote] "about" $150 membership fee All Sorts Motor Club Happened to know someone there No online forms - asked to call X Immediately invited to an event to meet some other members - that's nice $?? membership fee NSW Historic Muscle Motor Club Super quick to respond online Online forms available - asked for photos, blue slip & engineering paper work $70 membership fee

    NSW Historic and Classic Vehicle Rego

    The Australian National Street Machine Association has a really badly written guide in relation to the entire club rego process here. The RMS also have detailed information on the scheme here. Two types of 'Club' rego: Historic - 30 years old, owner/garaged in NSW, original spec CVS (Classic Vehicle Scheme) - 30 years old, owner/garaged in NSW, Modified. My Ghia is modified so the process for CVS rego as far as I can tell is: Join any club listed here, and pay the membership fee. Fill out a couple RMS forms: Classic Vehicle Declaration, Application for Conditional Registration, Change of record Get Blue Slip (Even if already registered), VSCCS Certificate. Submit Classic Vehicle Declaration to your club. The form will make its way back to you with some stamps and signatures on it. (Signed/stamped first by your club, then by a governing organisation - currently there are 3) Club will have some kind of process for checking your car - photos, pink/blue slip, physical inspection, VSCCS certificate check etc. Take ID, Proof of vehicle ownership & completed forms to RMS to register your car. RMS will provide CTP Greenslip, Registration, 60 Day Logbook and Historic number plate(first time) Fees approximately $110.
  4. Strangely hard to find much information on 'club rego' in NSW. Unfortunately, there is not a specific Xfalcon car club or even a generic Ford club that we can join for Historic or CVS rego. I figure I may as well document my experience on the way hopefully to club rego for anyone else who comes looking for more info later. I Have been trying to find a suitable club in and around Western Sydney, as my XE Ghia [stroker/t56/9 inch] gets out maybe once every couple weeks for about an hour or so. Not for lack of want, but just don't have time to drive during the week - Train to work/uni. To lazy to pull it out on the weekend because there is a big gate, 2 dogs to tie up and a BA Fairlane and FG F6 to move out of the way to get to the XE.

    NSW Historic Rego

    Have been trying to find a suitable club in and around Western Sydney. A whole heap lack an easily identifiable online presence (most people of my generation have yet to discover the invention of the 'telephone' and speaking with ones own voice ). I've also found it awkward approaching clubs specifically looking for Club rego, especially the real 'active' or event focused ones like Falcon GT Owners Club Of N.S.W. Inc. Particularly because I am honestly just looking for rego and am not so interested in club meetings or minimum attendance etc. Note: if they chose to reject me on those grounds - lack of participation, that is completely fair enough. In lieu of Ozfalcon offering Club rego, I really just wanted a list of easy options for Xfalcons without trawling through the massive RMS List and randomly contacting them. These are those who i've had contact with so far who have some kind of online presence and are broad in scope rather than a single model/brand club: Custom Car Club Temporarily stopped taking new members 18 March 2019 Online Form, with pictures does not appear too fussed with attendance $90 membership fee Eastern Australian Drivers Club No online form, but quick to respond on Facebook.

    Never ended up going the Modified rego in November, But am going to do it this time round. Didn't even realise I had already combed through this thread an got a reply! Thanks @SPArKy_Dave Better late than never i suppose. @Crazy2287 PM, incoming. I am surprised how little information I can dig up on this site or the old place. might have to start up a thread dedicated to the process for anyone else who comes looking in the future.

    Fitech (or equivalent) injection

    The fitech g surge looks like a slick piece. Super compact and appears to be built tough. Should be easy enough to tuck in to the engine bay somewhere. Edelbrock have a similar system to fitech, that has been updated since I last looked at it, maybe an alternative if the fitech stuff can't be had in time. What's your timeline on the whole project ? When I was shopping, most of this stuff had to be imported, but I think pretty much all the big parts guys are stocking this sort of gear now.

    Juggling work and University‚Äč has destroyed my sleeping patterns. After some good gains hit a wall at 106. I've never had a drink of alcohol before, thats a free pass from me. Still have the occasional Pepsi Max, but heavy on the water now, which is good. Just need to try get my sleep in. Sent from my XT1572 using Tapatalk

    Just Joined your comp Dean, looks like it's just me and you in a two horse race, haha. I've been up as high as 115 late last year, but i'm currently 107kg. Trying to get down to around 95kg. I've had plenty of time in the gym, field and court (basketball) over the semester break. But Uni has started up for me again and studying architecture sucks the life out of you. I've been trying to cut down on the sugar drinks, but nothing beats Vanilla coke

    Fitech (or equivalent) injection

    The other big cost consideration I failed to think about at the start was an appropriate fuel system to suit. For cost and easy home installation reasons, we (my father and I) installed an Aeromotive Phantom 340 EFI fuel system to the stock extended range ghia plastic fuel tank, in the stock location and moved the stock fuel sender over a little. It would have been easier to simply mount the EFI pump somewhere next to the stock fuel sender location, but I wanted the pump in the lowest part of the tank and I assume Ford knew what they were doing when they put the stock fuel sender in it's location. The maximum size of the aeromotive cut out is about the same as the original fuel sender neck on the tank. This means we had to cut extremely close to the sender neck for the aeromotive to fit. Without any flat area around the original fuel sender screw top, it can't be used to easily 'plastic weld' it to another position. So we sourced a second tank and used that fuel sender neck to retrofit on to my tank. All of this just so we could continue to use the original fuel sender for the fuel gauge. The next issue we found is that the fuel sender stock location is recessed down 10-20mm, this caused clearance issues when trying to attach AN lines to the fuel pump. We took care of this with a hammer, heat gun and a few hours trying to reshape the plastic tank a bit and some angled AN fittings. ..... If i was to do it again, i might go for the Holley in-tank retrofit fuel module, which is very similar to the aeromotive but uses their hydramat instead of a foam bucket and is slightly easier to install. I considered other similar systems; but the Holley, MSD and FAST systems at the time were out of my budget. The Edelbrock and QFI did not look up to snuff. Holley system has a bunch of LCD screens and gauges etc that you can add to their system, if that's your thing. The Edelbrock comes with an android tablet and all have slightly different feature sets to include things like support for e85, nitrous, meth, timing control, turbo/superchargers Fitech is great bang for buck if the feature set matches what you are looking for. Can't comment on reliability at the moment, how wild is your cleveland?

    Fitech (or equivalent) injection

    I have a Cleveland with a 393 stroker kit, 292h cam, stock cleaned up heads, 6AL and the Power Adder Fitech on Top. Engine dyno'd (on an engine dyno somewhere in Parra) at 440HP, He dyno'd it prior to the Fitech, using his own carb he got it to about 400hp. All he did for the Fitech was hook it up, enter a few parameters and run it up and down. I was told that that 450hp was best case scenario for my combo, so the Fitech at 440hp considering the predicted optimal number and his achieved carb number, i'm really happy with the results. It's going in to my XE Ghia with a T56 and a 9 Inch, but it's still a fair way off from being together, should be fun!
