I have no idea how that would work, but I'm guessing on pree ECU cars it would be somewhat "approximate"

Given that you had to remove the sensor fitted to the speedo head which meant removing the speedo remove the maximiser, and they were shit anyway then its not a surprise it got left.

I had a Volvo 144 with a Maximiser on it when I bought which just made it up as you went along, probably not helped by the mileometer not working and the fuel injection being removed for carbs!

My grandfather made something similar out of an old camera, I think he wrote the route instructions on a till roll or something, and it did get robbed- in the 1950s, before crime had even been invented.

Brilliant... late in for lunch I fired up an off-brand pot noodle and while carrying it to the lounge successfully spilled it all over myself, burned the piss out of my hand, soaked my phone with the juice, soaked a load of expense receipts I was also carrying and it hit the hall floor and just fucking exploded....it was literally dripping from the ceiling in my newly decorated hallway. The obvious and considered reaction was to throw an immediate, massive paddy and boot the fucker down the hall while screaming, which has made the whole scenario about 18 times worse.

I remember picnics in a Datsun 120Y with those little window mounted tables, they were ace*.
Rally(e) jackets, I used to have a nice green Castrol GTX one when I was about 13, I was the envy* of all my schoolmates.

My Dad often wore driving gloves, not the fingerless ones but the ones with the woven backs to them, I really fancy a pair myself now.
