    Default ID19 resurrected

    Hi,

    Advertisement


    I obtained a roadworthy for my ID19P 1961 Heildelberg today.
    Was a wreck when I got it.
    Club plates next.
    Very excited.

    Rex.

    Would you believe it.


    Got new tyres fitted.


    Got a four day pre registration permit.
    Filled her up at Buninyong and thought it a good idea to go round the mount bike track and test the brakes on the downhill run.
    Turned off Geelong road toward Redline and got this tap tap tap in the front wheel area. must be a universal.
    Decided to take shortest way home down Gittings lane, which comes out in Elizabeth street.
    Halfway down track faded away to a line of ruts and mud holes. No going back.
    Up with the high lever and straight though. Not even a MB or four wheel drive could have made it. Only my ID19. Lots of mud but stood the test.
    Found that a hose clip had come loose and was rubbing on the stub shaft. No big deal.


    Cleanup and into the roadworthy man today in Elsworth street.
    Turning off Geelong road noticed this Candy car flashing lights and a siren blast behind me.
    Pulled over and two cops went over it and me.
    Breathalizer, stolen car lookup, licence confirmation, permit legality, very close inspection of blinkers, lights, tyres, etc. never seen a car like this, ( young blokes)
    Explained that I was just turning into that driveway in front of me.
    Have a nice day, they said. Couldn't find anything wrong anywhere.
    Pulled into the testers and said I have already had the roadworthy done outside.
    Anyway, he did his job and now have a roadworthy that should translate into a club licence.
    Had a beer when I got home on the strength of it.

    This is a great result for a car with a bleak future! Thanks for taking it on Rex.
    Gaston Saint, a passionate French Citroen enthusiast, would be pleased that you succeeded in bringing his car back to life.
    I look forward to seeing it ...... All the Best Michael
