Hot cars are in the blood

Kirsten Sanfilippos has owned this 1973 LJ Torana since 2006.


Kirsten has had a passion for cars from the day she was born.

That's becausae her parents are hot rodders that have fuel running through their veins.

her dad did a lot of work on the car including the motor transplant.

Originally, this car was orchid metallic sporting a 186cu 6 cylinder and M20 4 speed.

Firstly this car had an engine/gearbox transplant in 2009 which consisted of a V6 and 4L60E 4 speed auto from a 1993 VR commodore, V6 conversions in NSW came to the party with all the bits and pieces to adapt Torana to commodore.

In 2013 the car was taken off the road to be stripped down, David Paton a good friend helped us out with rust repairs and a fresh coat of paint and chrome work were added to the car you see today.

Many hours of blood, sweat and tears by many people have gone into this car to get it to where it is today.

The whole family enjoys going for a cruise whenever they can.

A highlight was that Kirsten got to take this beauty to Toranafest in Newcastle back in September 2019.
