I ruined my day yesterday (and week, month + Christmas) when I aquaplaned my Daily on the Freeway at 100km/h. Into the guard rail I went, and now look at it. Dang! That got me to thinking, cheer me up and tell me your 'Woe is me' car related tale, one of those one's where you wake up the next day and wish, 'It didn't really happen, did it?' Check out where the front number plate ended up. Amazin!
Is this the best reason they come up with for buying a new Mustang? http://www.motorauth...
I checked the calendar, it isn't April 1st. Maybe they're getting in early.

National investment in the automotive industry is about more than cars.
Thank you for signing up to show your support for national investment in the automotive industry at the More Than Cars website (www.morethancars.com.au).
Without a decision on national funding soon, the future of automotive manufacturing in Australia is uncertain and up to 13,000 South Australians could lose their jobs.
Thanks for your support

This may have been asked or even done before but I'm thinking about fitting a HZ steering column to the HQ so i can incorporate the indicator stalk for obvious reasons.
My question is can it be done? Of corse there is wiring that would need to be changed but that should be easy enough with the correct wiring diagrams.
What would be the go with marrying it up with the dash, is the coffee pot going to work?
Has anyone done this or can you share a link to someone that has?
Sorry for not being Holden related but I'm looking at buying a 4x4 located in cairns, but the owner of the car has said that he had to head back to the UK. So currently the car is located in a storage shed in cairns, and he has emailed me vin, engine and plate details I have done a revs check on the car and it is a legit car . But my concern is the way to purchase it is done through a transport company which requires me to deposit the fund in an escrow bank account set up by the transport company and they will deliver the car to my house for 5 days I'm located in Sydney. Here is the website for the transport company anyone know them? Or anyone done something like this before? Just weary.

How far should a vk efi with a 3.23 diff go on a full tank? How do I test the fuel pressure regulator on the end of the fuel rail?
How does it work does it raise fuel pressure when the vacuum drops off?
Hi guys, hope everyones day is going well.
I need to pick your brains as now I'm stumped. Recently my HQ started to 'stutter/hesitate' when under load esp when going up hill in more so when in third gear and around 40 - 60kmph.
Once it has more speed its fine and goes away. If I gently apply the accelerator through this speed its not as bad as when I put my foot down.
I've checked the plugs and they are all good, I'm running HEI and I've just replaced the coil with a new HEC-716 which has lessend the stuttering but it's still there.
Go easy... I'm having to double-clutch shifting down from 3rd to 2nd. An EJ 62, manual box, original 54k on the clock. Don't dare try 2nd to 1st unless stopped. All ok shifting up. I love it, but is this synchro problem indicative of issues to come?
Afte some opinions regarding a Torana.
My mate is selling an modified uc hatchback with 308 conversion. It's a very tidy car with good paint and interior big tyres ect.
As I know the uc is not worth as much an lh or lx hatch, what would be a reasonable price. He wants around 30 grand which if it was a lh or lx I would not question because of the condition.
Some feed back please....
I am after some thoughts on my 186.
Lately when I start up from cold or even cool. (couple hrs after stopped)Sometimes the oil pressure will swing straight up to the high stop, past 100, other times it wont move at all.
After about 10 secs it slips into 20 odd.
While it is high or low there is a bit of a knocking sound which dissapears when the pressure is right.
It used to just sit at zero for a couple of secs then up to 20odd.
driving is fine, alters from 20 to 40 with revs.
got plenty oil showing on the stick and its pretty fresh.
Well the time has come! In three days I start my drive to WA from VIC. Pano is my ride! Serviced and ready to go, fresh oil and coolant, no leaks, good Tyres, other then a little clutch shudder piano seems to be in top condition.
Any advice for the journey? Its not a leisure trip its more of a get there quickly and safely journey.

The time has come to part with my HJ Sedan. This was a project of mine, but life has gotten in the way, and it's time to sell a few projects and concentrate on one.
Its a 1975 HJ Kingswood Deluxe, 202, trimatic (floor shift).
More details and some pictures here:
It would be easiest to contact me through the Gumtree email system, or leave your email in a comment below and I'll contact you as soon as I can.
