    MK1 Cortina, converted from column shift to four-on-the-floor for extra awesomeness.

    Lucas electrics...the prince of darkness...played a big part of my proud ownership of British muck However when I first came to Perth I had a 69 Toyota Crown...very similar to Para's...however mine was a three speed manual column shift. The change rod bushes were so worn that coming to a stop in neutral...say at a set of lights often entailed having to jump out, open the bonnet and yank the rods into line so first could be selected to move off.

    BSA Bantam. My freedom machine licensed at 15years old so look out world here I come. Flat out lying on the tank maybe 70 kph. Angry Moaris chasing me on foot were gaining until I hit third, top gear. Spokes could not stay in back wheel when wheels standing. Learnt about wiskerd plugs, decoke head, put a megaphone exhaust that only alienated villagers.

    To make it legal a chrome push bike bulb horn.

    Embarrassing moment, pulling out to pass the school bus. Suddenly it is leaning to one side as all students on the the bus are looking out the window. A Bleeding ancient thing and it is pulling away. Out braked it and flew threw an intersection to maintain self esteem. I was easy pleased! Bought a 175 BSA Bushman to go even faster and spent more time pushing it. Went two weeks once without breaking down. I have never owned another British Bike and therapy over many years has helped.

    1978 Toyota Crown Super Saloon like this vvvv one

    The good: Luxurious as fuck, velour seats, deep metallic blue paint, power steering, power brakes, power windows all round, central locking, front aircon PLUS a rear aircon/dehumidifier behind the rear seat, smooth shifting T-bar auto and smooth running straight six

    The bad: Anaemic 2600cc straight six that combined with the smooth but sluggish auto box and heavy full chassis meant even being shifted manually it struggled to out accelerate a moped Plus a million hoses and dash pots on the emission system that needed a degree to work out how they connected to every fucking thing under the bonnet and a tendency to badly rust around the rear window/boot area

    '74 straight 6 XB falcon, fucked valve lifters, wants to take me into ditch when I take my hands off the steering wheel, consumed engine oil with a vengeance.

    Still saw most of WA with it after I fixed the lifters & suspension.

    82 Sierra. Awesome little box of fun with the 0.97 litre 4 stroke powerhouse. The roof supports had completely rusted away so when driving to tech from Port to South Hedland the salt trucks would blow past and the whole roof would collapse in. Getting over the old rail line overpass would entirely depend on the strength of the tailwind.

    First car : Volvo 144 (same as pic). Lasted 6 months before I took a mates challenge to see how far I could jump it. Turns out 45 meters @ 85 mph. Broke it in two from the front firewall. Awesome car and probably only reason I’m still here to write this.

    It does , I had a dark green Datsun 120y hatchback.
    A lot of good surf trips south and north, pretty sure you could smoke the interior for residual gains
