    Your perfect two car garage

    2 cars is so hard - they would both have to be classics though. 1964 Ford Galaxie 500xl Convertible (in Red/Black Roof) 1959 cadillac Eldorado Biarritz convertible (Preferably this colorway) Of course Id need a daily driver too and that would be a late model 3 series or m5 :P

    Ownership Verified: 1965 Ford Anglia

    Random question - where have you fitted your speakers? I am weighing up whether to install them onto spacers on the sides of the car in front of the front doors (which I really don't want to do) or whether to place them in boxes in the front parcel tray. I have seen that your friend with the...

    My 1965 Ford Anglia 105e

    It was awesome! The people from the building factory were more than happy to let us take photos and even gave us a 'tour' as such :) The building is basically as it was when it was closed down after Ford left. Other than a few cosmetic changes on the exterior and interior it is more or less...

    My 1965 Ford Anglia 105e

    The Anglia visited its birthplace today - the factory it was produced within at Seaview, Wellington. Now a Placemaker's (Building) franchise, the factory has been overhauled inside but aside from that still remains fairly similar on the exterior. The people at Placemaker's came out to see the...

    My 1965 Ford Anglia 105e

    Last of the new parts arrived today to do its service; Oil filter(s) Fanbelt The Anglia started using a new oil filter sometime during the end of 1964 and being a newbie to the Anglia I had no idea which one it took so I got both - the guy at the auto store didn't charge me for the other and...

    The car cleaning thread

    The only thing my dad will clean the white writing on his Mustang's cooper cobra radials is with hot soapy water and a really fine piece of sandpaper (crazy you might say?). He read it in a NZ car magazine and tried it out - worked a charm and because its really fine sandpaper, no harm done to...

    Mercedes W123/W124/W126/W201/W202

    The first car I ever bought was a 1992 w201 190e. What an amazing car to own and drive! At 150k on the clock when I sold it, it still drove like new. Am I the only person who thinks these were a men's car? :P Mine had a blue exterior with blue cloth interior and carpet and woodgrain panels -...

    Cool/Awesome Car Commercials

    I think anybody residing in NZ will agree that Toyota make some of the best Car commercials on tv. In early 2000 Toyota released this commercial for their 4x4 Hilux. The ad ended up being abolished from tv as so many people took offence to the term "bugger." ENJOY! :D

    Ok cool I'll take a look and see how I go re-routing the washer piping. I really want to get it going again!!! Also thanks so much for the Spray you have used. Turns out, we sell it here in NZ too so I will invest in some. Did you use this spray on your Air cleaner too?

    My 1965 Ford Anglia 105e

    Sweet, thanks for clearing that up. I talked to Dad about it last night after I saw that post and he knew exactly what it was about. Think were going to do that in the next week or so. Before I bought the car I found a Haynes manual online - they are a useful guide. Yup, correct. The cars were...

    If you have any photos showing how this is done I would appreciate it SO much. The previous owner of our Anglia has removed the washer pipe sometime during its life and we are wanting to reconnect it. Problem is, we have no idea where the pipe runs from the washer box. Are you able to provide...
