FIAT 128 RALLY

Hi Guys Does anyone have any information on the RSA built cars? I was under the impression that they were all 2 door and 1300cc. I've recently come across information to suggest that they made 4 door Rallys in South Africa and some of them even had the smaller 1100cc motors. Any Fiat gurus on this f...

Re: SA Built Fairmont GT confiscated in New Zealand

As South Africans we enjoy the "lawlessness" if it works in our favour, but detest it when it works against us. While this instance is harsh, Australia and NZ take their road obligations seriously. With all of the V8's sold there, burnouts are quite a big problem. Every weekend you can hear the Ford...

Re: SA ASSEMBLED HOLDEN HR SPECIAL - CARB DETAILS

I've been trying to load photos, but I can't for some or other reason. I can't load as attachments or with photobucket, says the photo must be less than 500kb, but I have scaled them down to 42kb???

Re: Registration and fines

In the Eastern Cape, if the license hasn't been paid for 5 years, the car is automatically "archived" and deregistered. This happened to my 2002 and I had it put back onto the system without any penalties or arrears. It was not classed a rebuild either as I showed them the original docs. Had to go t...

SA ASSEMBLED HOLDEN HR SPECIAL - CARB DETAILS

Hi Guys Anyone out there with knowledge on the RSA assembled Holden HR Special Station wagon, circa 1967? I believe these were assembled with the GM sourced Chev 3100 motor (194.4ci) which is different to the Oz supplied Holden 186 Red motor. My carb is leaking and the auto-choke mechanism is wired ...

CAR MAGAZINE COLLECTION

Hi Guys I bought my first Car Magazine at the age of 14 in January 1984. I have kept every issue since then, so the collection stands at 30 years or 360 issues, unbroken and all in good condition. I have decided to eventually give this up and would like this to go to someone who will appreciate and ...
