“MY TORANA was bog-stock when I bought it from a friend for $1000 in 2007. It was used as a daily driver for two years before being stripped for a ‘quick’ freshen-up of the white paint and an engine swap.

This article on Scott's Torana was first published in the June 2019 issue of Street Machine

The job blew out and the car ended up stripped to bare metal after I was easily persuaded by a friend with a flap disc and grinder.

The LC has had a few different combos, from a naturally aspirated 186 to a draw-through carby turbo with a Trimatic, and now it runs an EFI turbo 202 with a Powerglide and nine-inch, with a 2JZ set to replace it in the near future.

Lots of friends have helped with the car over the years getting it to where it is today, from tubbing it in my shed to building a new engine in my backyard three weeks out from Summernats.

Making 363hp at the rears, the car has run 11.4@117mph and made the Top 50 in the Street Machine Summernats burnout comp the first time out.”
