  1. What's the key for? Just creative use of that which is available?
  2. I love how quiet this thing runs.
  3. Aren't cooking appliances exempt from all that clean air bs?
  4. Maybe I'm crazy but why would you put it in a place that's going to get covered in shit the first time you drive the car?
  5. Sad that you're selling this thing. Wish I could take it. Hope it goes to someone who will love it as you have.
  6. Nah, be less expensive to bring it down here. I've got plenty of parking and I'm sure the boy would start it up regularly and even drive it around a bit just to make sure everything still works.
  7. Perhaps if the cost is near enough to the same it would be preferable to get the cert man to come to you. That way you would have your workshop and tools available for any finishing touches that may be required.
  8. My wife's Laser was hard to start for some months. Once started it ran fine. The problem was thought by many to be fuel related but eventually turned out to be a faulty ignition module.
  9. You're a wizard. Wish I had half your talent.
  10. Back in the early '90s (pre cert days?) a guy I knew had racing harnesses in his T Bucket. Every wof he was questioned about them. Think he ended up carrying the relevant paperwork in the car all the time just in case.
  11. I couldn't see those either. Same circle and line hieroglyph.
  12. Rode from Wainui to Governor's Bay in it during '18 Nats. Such a fun little car.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Make us proud Bart. Looking forward to reading all the reports on this thread in the weeks following the event.
  16. Not me but my dad. He spends rather a lot of time in his shed.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. Yep, cows'll do that and their neck reach is always a lot more than it looks like it should be.
