1st question? Will they be keeping the car forever? If no,, then use the coarse bolt with a slot cut in, and some epoxy glue,, whack it in job done.  If it's a long term keeper then do as Nickw has advised.

The Saab might be a posh Vectra, but the Swedes say okay for E10.

Don't know what a clean40x48 or euro is now days, but it was 2.50 a 40x48 and 3.00 for a euro.

Now you see why they are worth money.

Top story on lunchtime news: people are facing the prospect of empty supermarket shelves because of a shortage of truck drivers. Cue the panic buying. Tossers.

 Lots of EE drivers went back when IR35 rules were changed by HMRC,  so some are struggling to get drivers, due to crap wages,, there's agency offering 29ph on Sundays in Bristol on the co-op,  so if you've a class1, there's money at the moment,,, O and long hours, early starts. Etc etc.

 There's not a shortage,just a shortage of drivers willing to work for crap pay n conditions

We had a Scouse Officer in the seg unit when I was working in it a visiting Governor shook his hand after talking with him, and said
" I better check that you haven't nicked my signet ring" a complaint went in against the governor ( who was a prize prick) and he was hauled over the coals for it & had to apologise for his remark .
Everybody is offended, and has to make an issue...
Why did he not just laugh and carry on,

RoRo looks to be pretty reasonable... There should be plenty of capacity now that now cars are built there any more :'(

 The cost of shipping has doubled+ Some shippers are blaming the Evergreen/Suez incident, and the Chinese have put shipping costs up,.

Well, it seemed adequate to me. :y
When did you last drive it? The Monaro front end was fitted after that Brackley meet ;)

Much improved over the Omega subframe  :y
I keep finding myself browsing the sales sites looking at Holden V8s. Generally the V8s are top money or  slammed or sheds (or all 3 in some cases)

This one looks unmolested for about 6,000


 Biggest issue at moment with shipping from the Colonies, is Box prices have gone thro the roof, be about 5-8k now for a box from down under, unless you get it surface transported, (put in a regular cargo boat).
