    No palm trees or Coco nuts so my guess would be someone where on the south coast or west coast? Great Ocean view, I live up in North Queensland in what I think is one of the most picturesque places in OZ at Airlie Beach.

    I have a update.
    Conversion price has gone up.
    Now it is between 65 000€ and 70 000€.
    So those "nice" +700HP Scania V8 's will set you back a cool 1/4 million € by the time they are ready to run as a hood.
    Crazy money.

    And the wait time is between 1 and 2 years.
    Who said there aren't any fools left.(remember a fool and his money are easely parted)

    Oh, there’s definitely at least two of them somewhere.

    I remember driving a WhiteGmc branded Volvo 10 wheeler at my first job. That had a synchronized 8 speed. The same company also had a cabover 10 wheel Scania with a synchronized 10 speed.

    This above will give you a idea about how it is.
    Add in the constant sound off BIG airhorns and open pipe reving engines till sunrise.
