I've just done a big update of build numbers, so if you emailed me, it should be on there now! if not, email me again!

The WA Walkinshaw.net cruise in December was great with 10 original Walkinshaw's turning up. We also had one a few weeks ago, and had 15 original walkys present, which I believe is a record for the most walkinshaws together at one time! Thanks to everyone who came down. One walky was unfortunatley hit by a Kangaroo, but it could have been worse, as there was a young boy in the front seat, and he came away with a very small scratch on his face.

More pics can be found here - www.walkinshaw.net/cruise/15-4-07

Alex has sent me some new pics of his replica walky, so check them out here.

 

A month or 2 ago, a walkinshaw at Shannon's auctions in Sydney, sold for $73,000! It had 16,000kms on the clock. Prices of walkys are on the rise! Here is the link to the auction:

And finally, there is a walky (build #699) on Australian Muscle Car sales, that has 1570kms since brand new! From the look of the pics, the lower extensions have never been fitted!!! It's kept in an air bubble also! Price tag is $150,000! Click on the image below, to see more pics, or the link here to go to the AMCS site:

I have a number of cars to add, and a few more features. As usual, if you have any info, pics build #'s etc, email them to me: craig@walkinshaw.net

What a tragic day for Australian motorsport. RIP to the King of the Mountain, Peter Brock. My thoughts go out to his family and friends. You will be sadly missed. A very tough week for Aussie hero's. Rest in peace Peter, you died doing something you truly loved.

Thanks to everyone who rang or emailed me with Walky's for sale, but the hunt is over! Im now the lucky and prowd owner of a very rare Walkinshaw!

I've purchased build #369, which has a number of options from the factory, that no other Walkinshaw (that I can tell or know of) has.

It has full leather interior, rear headrests, velour hoodlining (with sunvisors), electric sunroof, filled in C pillar moulds, momo stars, Larry Perkins EMS and engine upgrade, electric mirrors and a few other things. The best thing is, I have paperwork from HSV and the owner detailing this, which proves it was from the factory!

A big thanks goes to John (Corsa) for letting me and my brother crash at his place & driving us around Sydney, Chester - whom I bought the car off, for holding it for me until I got to Sydney, selling me such a wonderfuly looked after and maintained car (even when he had higher offers), Jason - for putting me in touch with Chester, organizing dinner & the cruise (that the Sydney weather decided to ruin), Andrew, Josh, Daniel, Adrian, Peter and all the other guys that I met while I was in Sydney. I had a great time guys, and will be back to catch up soon!

Click here to see a few pics, and I will do a full feature very soon.

Speaking of features, I've added Carl's build #001 Walky to the originals section. Click here to head over and check out the story of how Carl managed to become the owner of the 1st Walkinshaw!

As usual, I've added some more build numbers. It's growing!!

Thanks to everyone who has sent them in, and keep them coming.

Few more cars to add soon, and some updates on Alex's EVLHSV.

In WA, Motorvation 2007 (20th & 21st of Jan) is fast approaching, and walkinshaw.net will be entering as a combined display with calaisturbo.com.au. If you have a Walkinshaw, original or replica, and would like to enter, please email me: craig@walkinshaw.net or phone 0401 034 099. I would love to have as many Walkinshaw's as possible! So far I have about 5 confirmed, including the Walkinshaw Limo!

Im also working on a gathering for the 20th anniversary of the Walkinshaw & HSV. I have heard rumors that HSV will be putting on some type of celebration for it, possibly in 2007, as HSV was started in 1987. I'd love to get as many Walkinshaw's to that also, and represent walkinshaw.net. I'd imagine it will be in Melbourne. I'll keep you all posted!!

Cheers,
Craig

Added some more build numbers & wallpapers in the downloads section. Check the wallpapers out here.


Sunday 2nd July, 2006

Just a quick update. I've just finished adding a bunch of build numbers to the list.

Keep em coming in! More updates, with more cars, wallpapers, a feature of build # 001, and the F20 very soon! Also I will be adding a colours page, with pictures of every different coloured walky I can find.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot. A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to meet the man who's last name is the reason we call it the Walkinshaw - Tom Walkinshaw himself! Click here to have a look at the pics.
