    How does your V8 sound?

    mine used to sound like that too, but when getting historic club rego, the inspectors insisted that I have an extra silencer to make it quieter! o_O this I did and it lost its crackle that was so attractive, now sounds like any other modern car.....:( Peter

    An amazing piece of history, as a boy I loved both series, but 54 years later, I imagine that the cast are long gone, driving supercharged Rovers and Fords at breakneck speed through the pearly gates? :p

    Extraterestrial UFOs?

    always wondered if they get Rust in space, would be a tricky job to replace a cill section in a space suit? Perhaps they carry a can of WD40 in the glove-box, RP7 for the extra tricky bits, and a can of Carlton drought to offer any aliens encountered along the way? LT. Ryan Graves probably had...

    No Joke......really.. on my 1952 series one land-rover, the leaf springs were different from side to side, the drivers side had more camber than the passenger side. I definitely know this because mine always had a lean. I removed all the springs and compared on the bench, the difference being...

    What shape and thickness are the shims? circular to suit the spring shape with a hole in the center perhaps? If present, how many should be expected to find? would a small horse shoe suffice if caught in the bush?o_O
