Any other old fuddy-duddys out there..?

Does anyone else pass the time away New Years Eve watching the Military Tattoo on ABC1..?
I look forward to it every year. My kids run and hide..
They can run, but they can't hide. I taped it.

Happy New Year to all...........

Our indestructable ek

Like many kids in 70's the car to have that we could afford was a 60s Holden.
My old grandfather got ill and my mum adopted his pink EK special sedan.
138 engine and the old hyrdromatic gearbox.

It was the car I statred driving in and was a great old bomb.
All original including the standard rusted floor inside.

My mum was tiny and sat on 2 pillows to see over the wheel.
No seatbelts of course.
Living in Sydney , one day she was doing a family trip with 2 kids inside.
A PMG work ute one of those big old International things t boned her at about 35 mph.

Their fault entirely.
The engine was pushed back into firewall and the drivers side was pushed in about 4 inches.
How mum and sisters survived without a scratch who knows?

Minilite Magnesium suit HT

Hi

I have been asking around and trying to find a place who can get or make Minilite Magnesium rims to suit HT stud pattern or rims close to it but no one seems to be-able to help me one place said they could do similar design for $5280 tyers not included seems bit pricey to me for 15 inch rims

They dont need to be exactly the same but open to suggestions just want something strong and light weight for racing but in that design pictured

I have seen these wheels on other Targa cars such as Toranas and Monaro's just trying to find a place who can cater for my needs with out silly price label

Also if some one knows the info required for buying mag wheels such as stud diameters and off set and PCD or what ever the mag wheel place was yapping about today that would help me heaps

AC and/or Power Steer brackets

Hi All, Will someone who knows their HQ through WB's let me know specifically what setup these brackets suit? I know they are 253, 308 and assume they suit the big black "Frigidaire" compressor. If this is not correct I stand corrected. Is this a complete setup? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
