  1. Haven't taken any images lately actually. Here is a rather dark pic I took especially for the thread tonight. The only big thing I had to get done for the WOF were both front ball joints.
  2. Another yearly update on the old girl. I've had her out of storage since the 28TH December. And since then, she has pretty much been my daily driver. I've done nearly 1200KM's in her. With a big 700KM trip of the motorway system from West AK to Westgate then upto Albany, back down to Manukau, where I joined the motorway upto Puhoi. Visited my mate in Omaha. Then drove to Hamilton and down to Matamata. Being it's first road trip in my ownership in nearly 4 years, she did extremely well.
  3. I'll drag my gold Mirage along. If I have the time to get it running good. No WOF in 13 months. No worries? Or I'll just park my new, new school Toyota at the back of the carpark.
  4. What an expensive outing, this has been lol. Good to see everyone too. Solid effort.
  5. This is 2 and a half hours away people. Let's Do This!!!
  6. Just gotta make sure I take a bottle of water with me, in the Mirage tomorrow lol.
  7. I'll be there. I'll drive the harlequin Mirage. After it's had a service. New head gasket, Cambelt / tensioner and seals. And an oil change. Yay!!!
  8. Mirage-Man may not be there this year either. No legal vehicle to drive. And the one I don't really want to take is.
  9. Here is the drivers seat from the Hyundai Sexcel, being held in place. I unbolted the seat rails from the Excel seats, and the Stellar ones bolted straight in. The seats match the interior too.
  10. A 1989 Hyundai Excel ended up landing at Pick-A-Part in Takanini. I went out to look at it two weeks ago, as I knew I'd be able to score some parts off it for my Stellar. The front drivers seat needed to be replaced as it was starting to dip to the left side, as can be seen here. It was also starting to rip around the edges of the upholstery. As can be seen in this picture. Plus it also had what I can only assume were cigarette burns too.
  11. Once again, I'm around to doing yearly updates around the same time every December. I will hopefully bring her home in the next week or so, for her yearly spruce up and drive. I cannot sadly have her at home as I've got my other 3 cars and the work truck. More updates too come soon.
  12. Still hanging out for a spin around there mate. He's a busy man these days. @73crownwagon
  13. I'll drop on by a Hamilton meet up sometime soon I think.
  14. Yeah, this was us. Massive turnout. Huge!!! Well done.
  15. I'll drop on by to say goodbye too ya bigfoot. See ya soon.
  16. Yeah, I'll see if those new brake calipers on the green mirage are any good. Which they damn well should be. As Jacinda says: "Let's do this"
  17. Mate, just come around and yourself present.
  18. Rusty mate, come around and stay with us on the Friday and Saturday night.
  19. I was thinking of setting up a thread. But as were all such hard Kumeu fanatics, I knew someone else would do it. Looking for too seeing you again this year @pusherman
  20. Got the old girl at home with me, like I did this same time last year. Going too get the interior cleaned. $$. It's got a bit of mold in it from being in the shed. Going too improve the storage situation in the coming days. Haven't driven it much since last year. I took her in for a WOF yesterday, and it failed on the left front wheel bearing, it's real bad, you can hear it quite well. And the left rear diff seal. Both quite easy jobs. Other than that, she's my daily driver for the next few days. Also going too paint and clear coat the rims today. Cheers.
  21. Your driving the wrong way. @piazzanoob there's only one man in ak I know with a Piazza. That must've been u.
