    Hi,
    Surley the first step is your registration authority web site. Then follow the listed steps.

    Ray, if it is in Perth, I'd give Peter O a ring or get hold of Maurice D. I'll be home in a couple of days and can PM contact details.

    Hi Ray

    In NSW if you put it straight on to 'Club' plates, all you have to do is get a Pink Slip. I did it with a Lancia Beta Monte Carlo Spider which I had imported from UK. Of course, that means you can't take it on the road at anytime. You have to comply with the regs appertaining to 'Club' plates - not that you'd want to go down the shops to get a paper in an A110.

    Why not go to the shops in an A110, that's what I used mine for (as well as a few other things), eminently usable car

    My son is over 6'3" and was OK. It depends very much on the seats you chose and how far back to the chassis widening you can go. The stock ones basically don't, the "bacquettes" made it so that I simply could not even touch the pedals if put as far back as they could have been put.

    Tall skinny people fit O.K. cause there is plenty of room to move the seat back.

    Its people with large back sides or excessive bulk that will struggle to fit.

    You're right of course, pounds per horsepower or kilos per kilowatt, anything as light as a A110 doesn't need full XXXXL male beef to detract from it's performance! Like light aircraft they fly further and faster with less weight on board!
    Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone............

    In the ACT, any vehicle that predates the advent of Australian Design Rules around the early 1970s and has not been modified beyond its original specs does not to be engineered but only needs to go over the pits to satisfy Rego authorities that it is roadworthy. This is required whether it is for club registration or for normal road use.
