Do your school kids know their home phone number?

One day last week I was running about 20 minutes early in my school bus.
Last week I had three kids on from years 5 and 6 at the local Catholic school. I told them they could ring their parents on my mobile to tell them we would be early as I'm not allowed to leave primary kids by themselves at a stop. Not one of them knew their home number or their parents mobile number.
It has happened before with a year 7 kid on my bus.
It happened to another driver today when a kid missed his stop.

Never had such cold beers...

Since receiving my Member's Pack and putting an oldholden sticker on my fridge, my home brews are even colder. Not only that, but the bottles magically refill themselves!
Is there no end to the power of the oldholden sticker?

Thanks oldholden, and thanks Rusty.

OK or still (potentially) dangerous?

Have checked Holdenpedia but no specific guidance on this, so ...

Ignoring any discussion about offset or spigot size, if a set of wheels with 5 x 108 PCD happened to be available at the right price:-
a) is this near enough to the 5 x 107.95 PCD for HK/T/G to be OK, or still dangerous (like mixing HQ and Crummydore)?
b) with the HK/T/G being a stud-based, rather than hub-based, design are there any aspects of the stud nuts I should consider? Like the chamfer angle on the stud hole (of the wheel) versus Holden stud nut angle?

HZ Panel Van For Sale, Brisbane

Hi all,

The dream of this project has to come to an end due to mounting bills etc blah blah same old story, dog went in for surgery thismorning and that was the decider. I've got a '79 HZ Panel Van, auto, black in colour with Dragways, 202 with Holley carb. Front interior in near mint condition and has been completely reupholstered.

I recently spent over $400 at an auto electrician getting it up to spec for roadworthy inspection. Pre-roadworthy inspection at mechanic revealed a few things it would need, mostly minor (emissions controls, incorrect tyre sizes) but also rust in floor pans, lower doors, windscreen cowl, y'know, all the usual places.
