  1. Project thread: Hey Mac, that's a nice looking Anglia you've got there. Certainly an interesting choice for a 16 year old. What are your plans for it? Your thread is in the wrong section of the website at the moment, but I'm sure a moderator will move it to the User's Projects / Build Ups section soon. EDIT - Moved
  2. Hey all, Here is my recently purchased KE20 Toyota Corolla. Bought on Trademe from Hamilton and delivered to Christchurch. Discussion: Here is all the info as provided on Trademe: 1974 Toyota Corolla KE20 Sedan. Car is deregistered and has been in storage since ~2001. The good, everything is there, interior is in good condition, engine runs I have driven to Auckland and back from Hamilton but would be due an overhaul. The bad, all panels have dents, someone has attempted panel/paint poorly on it. In Jan 2011 I took it in for VIN inspection, it failed exhaust mount, brakes and damage on LH inner guard. The brakes and exhaust are trivial. Upon inspection of the damage it will need LH A pillar section replaced. I have a replacement cut to do so. Unfortunately I don't have enough space to keep it dry stored so needs to be sold. Here are the main photos displayed on the auction: Once the car was delivered finally i got to inspect the car fully. Saying that the panel work is bad is a understatement. Although something that is fixable and i can work through to get it back to its former glory. The interior is as mint as it looks. No rips no Tears all original. The only things that the interior is missing is the inner door pulls (Which im looking for if anyone knows of any). It has the original conversion chart and the original tool kit too. So i had to take it for a few drives. Heres the damage that needs to be repaired and the replacement section it came with:

  5. Well just when you thought i couldn't finish my current projects, i thought why not add another! Discussion click here So here is my 1972 Vauxhall Viva Estate. Last registered in 2012 and been off the road since. It use to have the stock 1259cc but that has since been removed. A bit of a special car too, being the first in NZ with plate number 1. The previous owner has spent a lot of time and effort in getting the new motor built up. Its a Blydenstein 1259cc (1.3L now) and lets just say its not stock anymore. Heres how the car sat when it was on the road: Stay tuned in the coming weeks
  6. Hey guys and girls! I'm running an event on November 18 called the Hamilton NerdFest which will be at Zeal (Ward Lane, Hamilton CBD) between 12-4pm which will house a record fair, comic book fair, retro gaming zone, sneaker exhibition etc. Basically a bunch of us nerdy collectors will be there with a LOT of content from the 70s-00s. I think it will be a hit and I'm currenly sorting consent to block off a part of the roadway on Ward Lane What would it take to have a handful of cars park up for part of the afternoon (if the roadway consent goes through) and alternatively on Ward Street which is by the venue? I would really love to have some automobiles that reflect the 'retro' theme so just wanting to know what is required to make it happen! Cheers
