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?

Orange HG Monaro

Guys, went for a trip to Geelong in the HG ute today to pick up daughter and on the way back down the Eastern came across a real smick orange HG Monaro. Go close to the best I have seen. My question is how did he get such a great shine on the car - it was dazzling in the sun. Looked like an original color orange not metallic or pearled.

One for the Gurus - pano modifications - Give us your thoughtd

Hi Guys

I have a HJ pano that I'm doing some modifications on. Yes naughty I know - but its happening.

I want to replace the tailgates with an electric tailgate from a wagon and realise that the top section of the rear of the pano will need modifying.

Has anyone done this before? I'm in S E QLD, so if you know anyone who can do this modification, I would love to know

The tailgates on it are no good the hinges and locking mechanism cactus.

Geniune HQ-WB tailgate

Hi,

Is there any definitive way of telling a genuine HQ-WB tailgate from a taiwanese job? Not just that "it feels thinner", is there markings or construction differences that differentiate the two? I sold a genuine tailgate and now the person who bought it says that it weights and feels the same as a taiwan gate that they have - I don't think that is possible?

Cheers.
