I didn't win Lotto  Cry
I can't make it to the Nats    Cry Cry Cry

I missed the Victorian Nats in 2006 (It was a bit to close to the Jindabyne 2005 Nats)
and was really looking forward to ticking Vic of the list of every state nats (Still waiting for the NT Nats though)

Hope I can catch up with everyone in NSW in a couple of years
If not....
I will really look forwad to catching up with everyone when we invite you all back to the West Coast.

Post LOTS (and lots) of photos on the Forum for me please.
I like the Forum because the pictures are still there when I come back to look at them a couple of days later
unlike that painful facebook thing

Thanks everyone

I would just turn up the volume on the stereo  radio until the noise disappears John  Grin Grin Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

I did find out that turning up the stereo volume DOES NOT fix a wobbly steering wheel though  Huh Huh Huh

I like finding magazines & stuff from mid 50s - mid 60s. Most meet my $5 budget.
I then frame them with whatever i can find.
But now i am running out of wall space.

And I've been decorating my club vest.
I was collecting Nats badges.

I always wear it on overseas holidays so i decided to add some other badges i have collected.

G'day everyone
I've been saving a space on my "office" wall for Nats posters ( & a space on my jacket for Nats badges)

Should i find something else to fill the gaps ?
Haven't got Qld or ACT stuff 🙁😟😢😭

Hi Guys

Daily drivers  Grin Grin Grin

The poor old wagon gets well used and abused  Grin
There's usually a trailer attached or something on the board racks or stuff in the dog box

Always get lots of waves and thumbs up and people winding down windows for a chat at the traffic lights

Cathy always expects a 2 minute trip down to Bunnings to take me 2 hours, because you always meet someone who owned, who's parents owned, had an uncle who owned, knew someone who owned or always wanted to own an FC (or FE)

Just wondering how many people use their FE-FC for other things other than cruising around looking cool
I don't know how I would manage without my roof rack & tow bar
These are just over the past couple of months

Can I call my metal shed a Barn ?....   it does have lots of dust

I got the 1/2 a bumper as a Xmas pressie from Cathy's daughter. . I asked for something old.
Thought it was about time I hung it up. ( I still don't know what vehicle it came off.. she was told FB Holden ! )
I will add my other bits to the wall as I get time.(the boot has more bits in it & I can unbolt bits off the Ugly Duckling)

16  General / General Board / My art ? on: March 04, 2019, 07:12:15 PM
I have a bare wall in the shed. So i am going to turn it into a work of art.

I may consider selling. Looking for offers over $$$1.5million. (Think of it as a great investment)

Thanks Ken
The indicator unit has always been wobbly but this is the first time I've stuck my head under there to find there is a screw/bolt ? missing
is the missing screw/bolt any particular dimension ? I will see if any club member has one lying around in a shed.

Would I be correct in assuming my auto electrician would have an electronic flasher can that would fit (is it a generic item or something specific to fit a 60 year old car ?)

18  Technical Board / General Technical / indicators not flashing on: February 18, 2019, 01:51:44 PM
The indicators on the FC wagon have stopped flashing
they all come on, on the correct side of the vehicle when you move the indicator arm but just stay lit up. the corresponding green arrow on the dash just stays lit also

The wagon is modified.. has H4(?) headlights and some upgraded electric things
It seemed to happen after I took the Hot Rod scooter to work for a whole week and ignored the FC
Is it just being temperamental ?
It seems to have started (maybe) when I hooked up the trailer
Could the trailer harm the wagons electrics ?
The drivers side front indicator is loose and we have noticed the light can be a little duller until you jiggle the indicator unit and it comes brighter again
is it just a bad earth connection
noticed there is a vacant hole.. should these three be nuts and bolts or screws  (typically my wagon seems to have an assortment) What do I buy if I want to replace them ?

just wondering what the possible causes might be
Having NO technical abilities...
do I just leave it with an Auto sparky to figure out and fix

 Cool Cool Cool

19  General / General Board / Re: where is eveyone on: February 17, 2019, 07:47:25 PM
I'm still here  Grin
Whether that is good or bad is debatable.

I just pop in to see what everyone is up to
or ask a question...   Like why did my wagons indicators stop flashing Huh...  I think it threw a hissy fit because I rode the hot rod scooter to work for a whole week  Roll Eyes

and I'm a Guru  Shocked Shocked Shocked Huh
which proves GURU status has absolutely no relationship to knowledge about FE/FCs (or computer stuff or most other things)

I use Facebook but find it very instant and things disappear quickly never to be found.  and to many posts just turn into verbal abuse between two or three people and degenerate into gutter trash.

I'm going away now.....
but I will be back
