Re: Rmmmmmm, Kring,Kring,Kring equals Two stroke!

Unfortunately when a louvre is packed it takes up a lot of volume and postage works on a combo of weight and volume.Although ve...

Louvres and bubbles

I have a stack of new old stock rear window louvres (mostly Perana but some unmarked) and door window perspex bubble sets. They are all for older models - 70's and 80's. Quite a few earlier Ford ones should be of interest. Some may not have all their brackets. Price R150 a louvre or set of bubbles -...

Hidden treasures

Have a look at this on the Car web site - amazing Dodge collection gathering dust. Maybe someone can persuade the owners to get these back into circulation.

Re: KR's Quiz 5

The DKW F12 went to Germany a few years before he died and the DKW 3=6 was sold locally, also before his death. Don't know about the rest.
