Re: Another one bit the dust

Hi Rainer Very sorry to hear this. You must be rather upset - I know I would be. Glad no-one was hurt. Minor traffic incidents are a fact of life, but when it happens to something special (in many respects our own Sixers are irreplaceable), it can be soul crushing. How many years have you owned the ...

Re: 1979 world land speed record M1 turns up!

Thanks Bobbo, that's cool, I like that car a lot. Very interesting story too. I reckon it looks better in the current pics, just black and covered in dust, rather than with the sponsor stickers all over it, but I think that bodywork makeover is amazing, even more so given it was built that way in 19...

Re: Mystery Speaker Pods?

I don't think they all had a grille across the top, only the section at the sides. That top section is just a solid piece on mine. Interestingly, the side grilles on mine are positioned on the outside edges closest to the C pillar, whereas yours appear to be on the inside edge at the centre of the c...

Re: New Pioneer 6x4" Speakers on the market

They do look nice, they don't seem ridiculously pricey, and you can't really go wrong with Pioneer. Obviously depending on how flash your head unit is will impact the quality of the sound they put out. Certainly anything will be better than what came stock, so if you're in the market for new speaker...

Interesting find Mamod, and it's developed into a very interesting thread too. $20K seems way too much to me, certainly here in the Australian market. Based on the pics & info it does look like it's a car that has been appreciated and valued by its owner, but it's asking price may depend on how stur...

Re: Legends of the Autobahn pix

Thanks for sharing the pics Bobbo. That's a very impressive array of cars. The new 8 Series and the i8 Roadster are impressive enough, but I can't imagine a show here in Australia that could also include an M1, a Z1 and a Z8 all at the same time.

That's a great looking car mate, well done. It sounds like a good find given how low the mileage is.

It'll look stunning with the Style 42s. Keep the pics coming.
