  1. Toyota Soarer or Lexus SC300/400
  2. There’s something just not right about a centred badge on a BX bonnet.
  3. My office at work had a clump of speaker cables hanging out of the cable trunking on the skirting board that seemed to serve no purpose, so imagine my surprise to find an old Realistic PA amplifier and microphone in the back of the storeroom. Connected it all up and is only bloody works. It even has a phono input, so I could bring in my spare turntable and treat* everyone with some of the excellent* records from my personal collection.
  4. Jesus wept, I have never heard of such picky, pedantic bin services. Australia has a (predominantly) standardised system of wheelie bins, Red lid for general waste, Yellow lid for recycling and Green lid for garden waste. When bin day comes you put your bin out by the kerb and it gets emptied, I’ve never had any bother about what I put in my bin or how I put it in there. The truck simply pulls up outside, the arm swings out, grabs the bin and tips it in the back. Simple. It just goes to show that there is no need for waste collection to be such a song and dance.
  5. The Royale had an interior to match any outfit.
  6. Australia’s most popular van, the Toyota Hiace, had a forward control layout until 2019. Now, with snout.
  7. Currently on a week long holiday in Tasmania, which is a grin in itself, but I just drove past a workshop with at least 20 Chrysler PT Cruisers in various states of disrepair littering the forecourt. If I had an Autoshite business card I’d have popped it in the letter box.
  8. Aussie Ford Falcon XG Panel Van! They’re getting rare here now, a local builder I know has one and keeps it tidy, he’s had it from nearly new. They suffer from rust, much more than an equivalent Aussie car if the time. Mainly because it’s a 1970s Ford that kept being made in the 90s with minor updates, rather than develop commercial versions of the new Falcon they opted to facelift the existing commercials and run them alongside the new body style. I checked the number plate on the dash but it’s from a Ford Ka(ck), not the Falcon.
  9. Toyota decided to save $0.0001 cents per radio unit (see unit above in picture) by not running traces in the PCB to the rear speaker connector. Which is a real pain in the arse after spending the afternoon fitting rear speakers to the pre existing wiring loom and changing the head unit to one with the seperate rear speaker connector present which must obviously mean that it is compatible with rear speakers? Because why would you fit the connector but not wire it up? TOYOTA, I’M SPEAKING TO YOU! *rant over*
  10. Exactly the same failure I had on the Corolla, I’ll be watching with interest to see how you fix it (I presume your repair will less dodgy than my many loops of strong string around the seat frame).
  11. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_of_Azaria_Chamberlain https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.abc.net.au/article/12563336
  12. Sold on to a new operator?
  13. Gorgeous number plates, it’s a crying shame those routed/ribbed Perspex plates aren’t more popular
  14. Indeed we do, behold the dashmat! They work in 2 ways, either protecting a good dash from cracking or hiding the cracks on a bad dash.
