So just curious,..

Why was your 62 a disaster?

Good on you for bringing the sabre back to life.

the 62's biggest problem was probably me but it was always stopping I had a lot of fun in it lost in in the ocean once. destroyed its second motor on the way to moruya theatre when herbie was screening and walked 20 miles home never to see the little bug again.After work and weekends I worked at the servo where my mechanical bill was till finally the boss put me through tech and got my mech(coff coff)anics ticket took me 2 years to pay the account off

Hmmm,.. yes,.. re-enacting the scene from herbie goes bananas where he drives out of the sea probably wasn't the best idea.:lol:

Hope this one goes better for you.

Good stuff.
