  1. Time to thin the fleet a little the old Commodore is up for sale on Trade me https://www.trademe.co.nz/2353007962
  2. Awesome I need an excuse to try out one of my junkers!!! I think I might check out my alternator thoroughly this time
  3. Mint you can sleep in the back of it as well then!!!
  4. I'm all set to go, I have no money and nothing is legal, so no change there then will take up the toledo to sell I guess
  5. I'm so sad I never had the time and space to finish the Crown, it had the best body i've ever seen on one of these, it just needed to be retro fitted back to semi original. I know you will actually do this car justice and I wanted it to go to a good home. Looking forward to watching this get done
  6. Yep it was me, currently selling most of my projects due to the usual financial distress.
  7. It's an awesome thing to behold, and soooooo rare here. I'm still in love with it
  8. I'll be there again as usual, I'm bringing a Train, which your all going to really love I'll be camping in the For sale bit this year, and hopefully not working, but I'll definitely cruise on by., Bringing the Transit Pusherman? I might have to bring mine too.
  9. Really cool find, round light Lada are so hard to get now, good luck with the resto
  10. This one was mine, Three on the tree had the Green one. Man I'm honestly surprised by how much rust there was in the car, it looked really good to me. Awesome work by the way.
  11. Stupid question but have you checked the fuel tank for water? Jags block the drainhole under the fuel cap, they fill up with water and it goes into the tank, earlier ones have drain plugs at the bottom I dont know about a series 3, but I guess its the same. Sometimes they drive ok, but when you accelerate, or go round a corner the water can wash up and get sucked into the motor causing it to cough and die. Its a crazy design fault. Otherwise I guess its airflow too.
  12. ARRRRGGGGHHH Kumeu Weather sucked man, but we still had an awesome time, it was like a freeking tornado. The gazeebo punched a hole in the tent caravan thing, and the roof blew off dylans Tent, which basicly left him with a ladies stocking to sleep in. The l300 was nice and water tight so all was sweet. It was North Pole cold on Friday, and Noahs ark wet on Saturday, I was going to break out the emergency sub at one point! Somehow I managed to blow the diff in the Monaco, no idea how Abusive Police car cruising was by far the best, see ya all next year.
  13. I'm in and out Thursday and Friday, due to Work commitments, Denham is around our bit from around 1pm Fri and Ill get back as soon as I can. When you getting down Tim? Main campsite will be going off.
  14. Done! roped off and sorted swapmeet campers are go. I had a word to the organizer and told them to expect the oldschool people in the showfield so you should be gold, he remembered us all from last year which was nice.
