    Had the '71 pass rego again today. Just in time for the Hunter Valley Kombi Fest (well that didn't quite work out). Had to explain, yet again, to an excited member of the public at the local service station that even though it is left hand drive it did not come from the US. At least he picked it as an early 70s model.

    Fell in love with it all over again, after it being parked up for 7 months. :D

    2 x 8 hour drives, at “around 110kph ;)“ - and it didn’t miss a beat! :)

    Is that because it is now lowered and has a batter stance?

    Nah no drinks mate.
    Was saving all that for the B/STOP.
    So disappointing it can't happen.
    But thems the breaks .Right now I'm giving Paddy a new lease on life ,interior just about finished and the money I was going to use on the trip will now go towards a duel battery system which is long overdue.:D.

    As of Friday last week ,still had not seen the light bar I thought I had ordered.
    So again sent an email explaining my situation and as well as that sent them a photo of the transaction summery which I printed off and suggested that they check their incoming payment records to establish that the payment was made.yesterday morning ,recieved an email saying that surprise surprise, they found it and wanted to know did I still want the light bar (which they originally said I didn't order) or a refund ,I politely suggested the refund please .been stuffed around enough. So have to wait 7 days before I get that now .:( oh well ,lesson learnt .Shop local, pay cash over the counter .No fuss .No misunderstandings.
    Leave online shopping to those who know what they r doing.lol.:D
