keithg87 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Larry Perkins 1987 VK SS Commodore whereabouts

https://youtu.be/uvg4dlp9-oM

Does anybody know where this car is now? Raced at the 86 and 87 Bathurst 1000 plus qualified for the 1987 Hardies Heroes, one of 2 Commodores to qualify that year when the Sierras dominated

Looks like it was being restored in 2014:

And while it may have qualified well at Bathurst, it never made the full distance.

86 and 87 Bathurst cars were different

The '86 car went to Tony Noske for 1987.

Perkins' 1987 VK being tested by Peter McKay in Wheels Magazine:

http://arc.bauer.x-cago.net/WHL/arti...STS-BEST.html?

Interesting Larry was then advertising his services: $18,500 for a "complete Holden Group A V8 - including clutch, bell-housing, carburetor"; which will "do 2500 km between top end overhauls, and 4000 km between majors".
