Mindi Seng bought this one-owner VH Commodore and with some help from her husband and friends, transformed it into a stunning silver 308-cube powered cruiser

This article on Mindi's VH Commodore was originally published in the June 2017 issue of Street Machine

“I BOUGHT my VH in December 2015 from a deceased estate. It was a one-owner car, painted beige, with a stock-standard 202 up front. The car sat in our shed for three months before my husband Jason and I decided to get it ready for Beachfest in June 2016. We got stuck in every night, and stripped it bare to find an immaculate body.

First job was paint; as Jason is a spray painter, I was now his apprentice, and after four weeks the car was silver! I got the Weld Super Lites as a Valentine’s Day present, so they went on as well.

I wanted a nice-sounding cruiser, so out came the 202 and we put in a 308 with some Aeroflow dress-up bits, a small hydraulic camshaft and 600cfm vac Holley. My husband and his brother converted the Trimatic gearbox from six-cylinder to V8. The immaculate interior was too nice to pull out, so I left it standard.

We finished it all in 16 weeks, and I love it. We attend local car meets and cruise it most weekends. I couldn’t have done it without my awesome husband and all our car mates that helped out in the build.”
