Hi Glen,

If you have Fetch you may be able to watch it through catchup.
Worth a try.
Hope you and Jane are well,we should be able to arrange a car event soon.

For some reason, they deem that Wollongong region is not entitled to receive that channel? :banghead:

And done correctly a chain conversion is a great conversion as it runs all GM equipment,its not cobbled together with bits off of a cresida or ford or a WB Holden and you can buy things like extractors that actually fit as they were designed ..Still cannot beat a left hand drive car left as left hand drive though

Before I bought my barge, I looked at another Grand Ville in South Australia that was RHD.  It had been converted using a properly engineered enclosed chain drive.  It drove very well.  On the flip side, back in the early '80s, I saw a factory Hemi/4 speed Dodge Charger that was converted with an open bicycle chain and bicycle sprockets under the dash.  Along with the bodgy steering, it had the obligatory bodgy wiring that goes with a rhd conversion.  Any of the loose wiring could have been mangled by the chain and sprockets...

There's actually a lot of cars done like that.  It's pretty common...

The craziest one I have seen was a '72 Transam. They cut the steering column in half, swapped the wheel and dash to the right. Put cogs on the ends and a chain behind the dash. The brakes were done similarly with linkages.

Hi All,

For those interested channel 9 Rush (free to air TV) has heaps of car related car programs.

The best three in my opinion are,Wheeler Dealers,Overhaulin',and Garage Squad.

All 3 have lots of American cars.

Regards Felix
