  1. Welcome to oldschool. Been following your progress on retrorides.
  2. Pretty sure the first white number plate saw was on a Sierra, NA751 I think it was.
  3. I ran light truck steel belted radials on an ADO16 for some years. Was impressed with the wearing qualities thereof. Disclaimer; may not be entirely relevant.
  4. Are stiffer valve springs a valid option?
  5. Pretty sure December 1951 is the cutoff for accurate speedo for a wof.
  6. +1 for Scotty. He made a new speedo cable for my Wolseley many years ago. Very good service and not crazily expensive either as I recall.

    The GC

    You drove that thing from Kamo to Maungatapere and didn't get caught? Did you sneak out the back way or what?
  8. I did give it a spray with CRC 5.56 in the first instance. Will give it a further soaking and warm it up a bit then see how I go.
  9. Does anyone have any good ideas for freeing up a stuck spark plug in an aluminium head please? Went to check the plugs on my Civic and three came out easily but the other one resisted the application of moderate force. Didn't wale on it really hard as not keen to risk breaking it or stripping threads. The three plugs I did get out were better than expected given the mileage and operating conditions of the engine (lots of short runs and almost never getting warmed up properly) but would like to replace them all anyway.
  10. Are those things any good? I've always dismissed them as too weird looking.
  11. How could they be anything else but Millie, Molly, and Mandy? 56mpg. How is this even possible?
  12. I thought similar things. Been looking at 80 and 100 cc scoots on the tard and tempted to push my luck.
  13. Question for those who've done these trips before. What're the odds of getting caught riding on the wrong class of licence when travelling in a large group? Kind of keen to have a go.
  14. Why would you do that if you had the choice to put it somewhere else which it seems Flash does?
  15. Would be funny if it was my old house. What're the odds?
  16. So every traffic cop and wof guy would need to be able to scan the disc? Not particularly helpful for potential buyers of a modified car if they can't scan the disc themselves.
  17. +1 for keeping it original cos it's such an oddball. Not like you don't have plenty of other cars in which to drive fast.
  18. Always liked the look of these things. Good to know the waste oil trick works. My Standard Vanguard got the same treatment in the mid '90s.
  19. Shouldn't the outstanding ruc be the responsibility of the previous owner in that scenario same as outstanding licence fees would be if you had purchased with an expired but not dead or on hold rego?
