Here's a scary one (hope I haven't posted it already).... broke a bolt off in the block while changing the water pump. To drill out the remains, I had to take everything out for drill motor access. I didn't trust trying to use the 90° drive on the drill, since I couldn't really tell if it was drilling straight in.

Don't recall that one Ellis, new member down under :-k

Looks like those clear front blinkies could use some stealth bulbs #-o

I agree with Ralph, you guys always get these great rolling shots 8)

Thank you fellas, appreciate that.

Mr Humpage and I have been able to compile quite a lot of nice shots over the years with all the various Sixer owners we've met, but there's no denying the design of these cars lend themselves pretty well to photographs.

The red car is our old mate Alex and his Zinnoberrot '86 model. These shots are from a run we did with Matt through Kosciuszko National Park back in 2010.
