BT52 at Bathurst

The new Brabham will be doing demo runs at the Bathurst 12 hour.
It will be interesting to see how it goes.
It's competing at LeMans later in the year.
If I was filthy rich I would get the street legal version for weekend runs up Walcha mountain.

Blue 2850

Does the Blue 2850 engine have a counter weighted crank similar to the Blue 3300 engine? Or is it's crankshaft similar to it's earlier 173 red motor sibling?

Cheers, Mick.

Probably Not Something Old Holdeners will have to worry about/

Fuchs perhaps "Fuched Up" https://www.nzherald... "A man whose Maserati shook, shuddered and sounded like a "tractor" when it broke down has failed to force the car's seller to refund the purchase price after wrong oil was put in it.

Auckland company C&P Beauty Services bought the Maserati Ghibli for $87,400 in April 2017 with fewer than 9000km on the clock.

But 10 months later, it broke down and now requires an engine overhaul, expected to cost "many thousands of dollars".

QLD P Plate restrictedOld Holden

I am trying to find out if an EJ wagon with a red motor is legal to drive on red p plates in Queensland. All the searches I’ve done say “referred” or “not determined”. Does that just mean I it’s up to me to work out if it complies with the 130kw per tonne rule? And if it’s under I’m good to go? Can anyone shed some light?

Trimatic slip in first gear in drive only not L

Hi can someone advise me before I go to a tranny specialist's and spend money that I may not have too.

I dont have any specialized tooling, just regular, and Jack's ect in my home garage.

Basically I brought an old hz 6 cylinder kingswood that had been sitting around for years unused. I hooked back up the fuel tank and replaced the master cylinder, bled the brakes and now the car runs and stops.

If I take of in D the tranny will slip in first gear only but if I put it in L and take of it is fine.

Any ideas i might be able to try?

Thanks

Smoke, flames and old race cars

If you got 10 minutes to waste this would be best way to do it.
It's a video of very early race cars starting up: https://jalopnik.com...
These are glorious old machines that have a character and presence that make today's race cars look about as exciting as a wet dishcloth.

cinnamon brown HG

My 2nd car was a cinnamon brown HG like this ($400 from an old lady in Taree) .
Mine didn't have the spats, unusual rear boot badge or the unusual colour coded boot either. I dont think that's factory but (I cant belive im saying this) That is a VERY nice car and I actually like the colour now (I called mine poo brown and hated it back in the day)

Movie gripe

This has been worrying me for a few weeks.
Has anyone seen Ladies in Black?
I liked the movie. I like the way our movie makers can tell a story using just the characters and the setting without resorting to the Hollywood extravaganza b###sh!t.
We've had The Dressmaker, Malcolm, Sunday Too Far away, They're a Weird Mob and many more.

paddock bashing OH

I think most of us can relate to trying to kill an OH at some stage of our lives. My 2nd car (HG sedan)ended up on the farm as a paddock basher / roo & fox spotlighting vehicle for a few years before it was sold very cheaply as a demolition car and destroyed at the Newcastle speedway. (We never did kill the 186). The HK in the clip (link below) sure takes one hell of a pounding.

Early Hump Day

Link to latest Retro Auto’s magazine – some interesting info re the FJ Holden….you can see how old fashioned the Australian car was compared to the others at Motorama 55 and those that influenced the following Holden models. Interesting that FJ design was locked in May 50 but not released until 53 because the 48-215 was still selling well and people were waiting months to get them…some good quality pics...https://www.shannons...
