Also interesting stuff about your 'daily drivers' etc. or interesting cars you have seen on your travels, even motors-based TV shows you can recommend. Please, no 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your 'business', links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled 'What's My Car Worth?' threads and "Who Can Sell Me A . . ." posts.

Look forward to the updates

Nottingham's still good, and St. Anns is still St. Anns

Where you at Nottingham or Trent? I do some work with both from time to time.

I was at Nottingham. 4 years of drunken mischief then travelled to Oz and decided to stay. Tho the wife had something to do with that part.

The gearbox would be handy but the transport cost to Oz would be ridiculous. I'm just about to start learning about the swing axle. I can get hold of a 64 swing. Will that fit?

To all, I'm hoping the guy will have got the 59 up here by the 10th Jan and then I can take some piccies of her in my garage. Till then stay cool peps!!!

Gonna go rat look until I can get the paint sorted and then will be standard for a while until funds allow and then i may be tempted to stick a subura engine in it to piss the ute boys off over here. Imagine a from the UK with a V8 under his foot and you get the picture
