  1. Rode from Wainui to Governor's Bay in it during '18 Nats. Such a fun little car.
  2. Amazing video. I don't use the word awesome very often but it very definitely applies to this event. Looks like so much fun albeit punishing on little wheeled scoots.
  3. Much like some Fiat cars then. I drove on 850 Sport once and even with my not over large feet it was tight down there.
  4. Make us proud Bart. Looking forward to reading all the reports on this thread in the weeks following the event.
  5. Not a chance. There was a significant waiting list for new cars in those days. I've been told that it was not uncommon for a year old car in good nick to sell for more than the new price purely because it was available.
  6. Weren't those 50th anniversary badges just slapped on customer's cars willy nilly by Nissan dealers? A chick I used to work with had one on her 120Y and her husband's C20 van may have had one too.
  7. I love the way you are utilising so much modern electronic shit on such a dinosaurus car. You truly are some kind of genius.
  8. And conveniently located for pickup en route to/from Hanmeet.
  9. Some years ago I found a four cylinder Ford manifold with a Holley carb on it lying in the grass behind one of my sheds. Looks like it's off a T or an A. Don't know enough about them to pick the differences. No idea if it has any usable parts left on it but if it's any use to you you're welcome to have it.

    Diesel RAV we have at work does this. We almost invariably have to top it up between services. The check engine light often starts to flick on with about 2000 km to go till the next scheduled service.

    Does diesel still work out less expensive if servicing costs are included in the calculations? Serious question. I've never owned anything with a diesel engine apart from one dodgy old tractor.
  12. What do you think of the super-shift? I borrowed one for a day back in the '80s and found it quite fun.
  13. I generally lay some timber on the ground to make ramps. Height and slope become infinitely adjustable.
  14. Cinderella has gone to the ball. So many old cars out tonight and perfect weather too unlike last year when it pissed down all night. No decent pics cos night time.
  15. That's a point. Not sure that any of the seven BMC cars I've owned over the years still had engine numbers.
  16. That'd be wonderful. Please do that.
  17. Used that last year but she reckons it's not cool enough this year. Also the tricorne hat with feathers on is unfortunately too tall to wear while driving a modern(ish) car.
  18. Hi Guys. My daughter and her friend are looking for a cool car for the school ball this coming Friday night. The car they thought they were going to use is no longer available. Short notice I know but anyone got any thoughts? Thanks in advance. Kerry.
  19. Would it need a cert for 948 to 1098 swap given that the two look alike enough for it to not be noticed at wof time and the horsepower difference is probably bugger all?
