  1. Coincidently, the same auction house is selling the Gas Monkey VW Shorty https://www.lloydsonline.com.au/LotDetails.aspx?smode=1&lid=1863273 I'm interested to find out how that ended up in Australia, someone must have really wanted it.
  2. These two honeys are currently up for auction (with an auction house that I have an account with...) https://www.lloydsonline.com.au/LotDetails.aspx?smode=1&lid=1858079 https://www.lloydsonline.com.au/LotDetails.aspx?smode=1&lid=1858080 If only I had somewhere to put them as I think they will sell cheap, or not at all.
  3. Shame about the condition as that colour combination is FIT.
  4. They are still quite common, but they are rapidly disappearing. There are 2 breakers yards near me, one had no Corollas older than 1996 in stock and the other had the AWD Estate (1991) which was the oldest one they had. I remember 5 years ago these were everywhere and yards would have dozens in stock, that being said the yard I went to had lots of parts on the shelf from previous breakers.
  5. Well it appears to be good news from the Autoshite Australian Division. The 3rd new solenoid has seemingly resolved the petroleum problem I have been having. Further, more in depth testing will need to be undertaken before its date with the tester, but the outlook looks promising. I have really started to miss its woftyness. Things are also well with the Corolla, the radiator is holding up with the epoxy putty bodge and research has deemed a brand new replacement to be quite affordable. It has also had a trip down to the breakers yard for some bits. In Toyota Australia’s infinite wisdom, they decided that the Japanese engineers were wrong to fit the AE92 Corolla with a front anti-roll bar, so they didn’t bother to fit one. This resulted in less than ideal handling characteristics. Fortunately for me, the AWD Corolla Estates were built in Japan with front anti-roll bars, so I strolled down to my local breakers yard who happened to have an AWD Corolla Estate in stock. $55 and an hour later they presented me with all the necessary parts to give my car the handling it deserves. But, there is a catch, the AWD Corolla Estates have a rear prop shaft and there is a corresponding hump in the anti-roll bar to accommodate this and I’m not entirely sure it will fit my FWD car. The prop shaft in question sits next to the exhaust in the same tunnel in the floor pan and my concern lies with the size of said tunnel, it appears to be quite spacious where it needs to be but I am not sure if it will be spacious enough. I guess there is only one way to find out.
  6. I’ve also got a stack of Maestros cluttering up the place
  7. That is a real shame, especially as you went to all the bother of getting it a fresh ticket. Is it possible to perform a “sunroof delete” in the form of a sheet of steel, a tube of seam sealer and a million pop rivets? Or is the rot in the pillars to severe to bother.
  8. No battery terminal cover? No worries! No expense spared on my fleet.
  9. A pair of those strange modern MGB things I forgot how teeny tiny Mokes are Have another shot of that P76, this time with less people in the way And that concludes my time at the show. I wish I had the time to photograph everything, but there was just so many fantastic cars. To finish up, have a spot from my departure
  10. This little Princess was very sweet Plah! Dolly Sprint looking grand in British Racing Green Patina, part 3 I have an unusual attraction to TR7/8s
  11. How can anyone dislike the styling of these Alfas? It is like a Peugeot 405 on steroids Speaking of Peugeots... The Citroen DS is pure elegance I do like a sexy topless Swede Green Triumph is green
  12. It is interesting that the face is the only thing in common with the Falcon and the Granada (the XD Falcon shared headlamps with the Mk2 Granada) The Commodore was probably a Bathurst 1000 racer, but I’m not 100% sure.
