Re: Hello from Tasman bay.

You are the exception, not the norm Patrick. Have a look at some of Alex's stuff, he's the exception too. That said, agree 100% on all your points. You've proven the nay-sayers wrong with both of your fantastic cars. As someone who has a car that most people hate, I can't understand why people don't...

Bainbridge 7 being sold as roller

Some monkey is pulling apart a piece of NZ '7' history! This is one of the Bainbridge cars, possibly the only one still left, previously owned by forum member 'Binzy1'. http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/lotus/auction-1312165591.htm http://trademe.tmcdn.co.nz/photoserver/full/584693864.jpg ht...

Re: Hello from Tasman bay.

US built, Costa Mesa California to be exact. The Mirage had a proprietary chassis and was available as a kit or factory built. Mine was factory built. They made a cheaper VW based car called the Montage which was a McLaren M6GT lookalike, it came to NZ as the Montage. The moulds etc have since retur...

Re: Hello from Tasman bay.

Manta Mirage, mid-mounted SBC. I was talking to a chap years ago who had made a few custom screens. He said that most were easy to make as they weren't normally a compound curve. He drew a cylinder and then marked out on the cylinder what made up my screen. There was a company in Auckland, I think t...

Re: Car shipping

Sounds like the previous owner needs a slap. Who removes a sump plug and leaves a car able to be started if it has been sold and is being moved?

Re: Hello from Tasman bay.

Contact someone like these guys and just buy a windscreen. http://race-car-replicas.com/rcr-962/ Or maybe set your sights a bit more retro and use a Saker windscreen to build something closer to a Lola T70. At least they should be available locally. http://www.ultimatecarpage.com/images/car/3214/Lol...

Re: Lynx

With reg on hold you take it for a WOF, if it passes you buy some reg and get on with having fun! It's just the normal process, norhing special. Make sure that it really is on hold though or things can get much more expensive! It'll probably be on an LVV exemption rather than a cert. I don't think t...

Re: Lynx

Search the expired listings. There was a much nicer rotary chevron about five weeks ago that didn't sell. The reserve was $10,100. Maybe it has since sold but no harm in asking for a re-list. http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/specialist-cars/other/auction-1268084092.htm http://trademe.tmcdn.co.nz/phot...

Re: Lynx

This unfinished 4AGE powered Chevron sold on Trademe last week for $3,000. Between the two, I'd have had that instead. http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/other/auction-1259525607.htm?archive=1 http://trademe.tmcdn.co.nz/photoserver/full/549409932.jpg I crashed a Chevron at Baypark and can tel...
