    First look at the new Singer. Holy crap!

    One of the singers at luftdekult was well driven and lived in. I have also seen one filthy driving on the road in C alifornia. Not all would be garage art, even in this new ore expensive version. Some people can and do use million dollar plus toys. Just look at yachts - cost millions and spend most time in the weather at the marina. the tax situation in Australia is just an embarrassment and why we can't have nice things. I thought there was a proposal for special treatment of cars sent OS for refurb and sent back again. Don't think it became law like all the other thought bubbles.

    Home Built Z

    It helps the car be narrower for Japanese roads, was standard fitment rules until early 80s until exports really took off, and rules changed to allow for door mounted, and the japs stopped buying them. Kind of like the bench seat - too uncool compared with fancy cars like Porsches and BMWs.

    First look at the new Singer. Holy crap!

    This is the thing. We have arrived at a weird place where car companies can’t make the cars people want to buy. A few have tried the retro thing reissuing old cars but they can’t be registered. Singer and others are creating excitement and interest that manufacturers aren’t getting. How long before official manufacturer retro modding becomes a thing? It’s the only way to get around the rules that have created compromised cars.

    Bolwell (I think I want one)

    I’ve met Campbell Bolwell at his factory in Melbourne. He went into making Kenwood truck cabs IIRC. He still had the molds back then, but that was going back a while. He also released a 4 cyl car in the 80s but it never took off.

    Stolen 911SC Gauges

    That is good news. Service books impossible to replace.
  7. Most older cars don’t handle properly unless a 10mm socket is left in the top mount of the strut tower.

    3D Printed Sportomatic Brake Pedal Rubber

    Put some 'sporto' branding in the center diamond shape?
  9. Every time I have dealt with chewed out shoulders in cars with IRS it was the lower rear ball joint, not the alignment. Not familiar with the suspension design but look into it. Especially if it is right on the corner of the tyre. Perfect time to fit the wide body flares now!

    GST Changes 1/7/18

    Taxing Australia into prosperity - will there ever be an Australian government with a clue?

    GST Changes 1/7/18

    How is the ato going to get compliance with a company with no Aus operations? Why would, say, Pelican parts, care what the ato thinks?
