    You would need to be either a midget or a contortionist to get your leg over in one of those.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    I was hooked on the smell of cellulose right from the start Vern, probably a leftover from my aeromodelling days using dope and balsa glue! I expect you did have a queue for freebie paint jobs. Mind, being in the trade it's amazing how many friends you acquire with bent cars! In later years I think it was the usage of Cyanoacrylate two pack paints etc. that did me in. That's what a Consultant once told me even though I was a smoker.
    People don't realise just how many shades and variations of colours there are. I once counted 23 different shades of black and there were more!

    Wish we had an old car right now. Our 2010 Honda Accord has decided to scream the VSA ABS alarm intermittently. We took it to a mechanic who took it to an auto electrician etc. Turns out the electronics in this component has to be recalibrated, in the meantime we have good brakes but no way of really knowing if the ABS etc is working or gone on strike.
    Cars these days have too much in them that's simply not required. Too many computers saying "no"! I have fond memories of our old Austin A35 van when we first got married. The fly wheel was missing a lot of it's "teeth" so I got pretty good at pushing it to start. No alarms though!!
    Needless to say we will be up for a bill of $1400 for this fix.

    I hate modern electronics in vehicles. Unfixable by the guy in the street. The only tools I needed with most of my cars (we're going back a few years now) was a hammer and a bent screwdriver! Lol! Chinese s**t electonics.
