Smile Re: 2018 Dodge Challenger R/T

With advent of electrics, and hybrids and small displacement turbos becoming more common all in in the quest for fuel economy, why do we need large heavy SUV's?

Think outside of the square!

Re: To Sprint or not to Sprint

Elan S4 Sprint !

You don't climb into an an S4.........you put it on !
I have driven an Elan S4; the car very quickly becomes an extension of...

Re: Car of the week

Should have made an estate car out of it.
Crayford did that type of conversion.

There is even a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow 11 lobbing around Sydney, rather nicely converted to a station wagon. I...

Re: Windscreen Glass

You may NOT have to replace the windscreen, if it is not cracked or star chipped.

I had a badly wiper scoremarked w/screen in my 6.9.
I chose not to replace it, but I DID fix it myself.
The job...

Re: LED Headlights

I am looking at the possibility of putting high intensity LED headlights in my C280. There seems to be a fixed angle between high and low beams, and the low beams are rather poor by modern lighting...

Re: Car of the week

For CLK's, I am on a nearly impossible quest:
A 2009 CLK500, with the quad cam VVT M273 5.4 litre engine. (last year of the CLK's)
A pocket rocket, but not with some of the AMG extra expenses and...

Re: Top 50 cars of all time!

You have to thank Mercedes-Benz for mostly being in the lead, when it comes to automotive technical development and innovation.
For having the first or the latest, a price has to be paid:

Re: Custom Ford Mustang

Not really a deep gleam in the paint makes me think that the entire car may be plastic wrapped.
Owners of new high priced cars sometimes do this.
I have seen a brand new Maserati entirely plastic...

Re: Mercedes Enthusiast

Stay with your W202 C220.
If properly maintained, it will be just as reliable as a Toyota Corolla.
You have 400 cc's of extra engine capacity as well.

Yours is in much better condition by the...

Re: 560SEL with a twist...

I agree: twisted.
I wonder why the low price?
Perhaps the victim of a domestic dispute?

Re: The Rover P5/P5B

I lived with an AUSTIN MAXI in the UK for 15 months. I thought it was quite OK ! :)
It was able to keep up very well, way back in 1971, on the European autobahns.

It is going to stay there.

Re: LED Headlight Bulbs

I am thinking of putting LED's in the headlights of my W202,
Won't bother doing that with my W210; it has xenon headlights, but LED's are brighter.
I have seen LED head lights retrofitted to cars...

Re: Car of the week

Pity the W123 300D Turbo was never sold in Australia.
It was sold in the U.S. however.

I have heard of a 300D modded with a turbocharger.
What I do not know, is if lower compression pistons...

Arguably the best looking car I have set my eyes upon is the
Daimler Vanden Plas Double Six coupe.

As pleasing to the eye as a C107.

Re: Will never buy a W107

Saw a real good W123 300D turbo on youtube. This video says:
"Best car in the World". (92kW 245Nm 5 cyl.)
As far as I know W123 300D turbos were never sold on the Australian market, although I...

Re: For Something Different - An E-Type Replica

What sort of engine gearbox and diff. do they have?
No strength in the body, would need a really competent chassis / frame.
The soft top looks to be less than professional.

Re: The Citroen DS

I have been told that if you have an accident on the roundabout at L' Arc de Triomphe, any car insurance is invalid.
Now, I know the reasons why.
