    Those old pooludes are awesome old cars daz, I've had a few of them back home and they're just brilliant cars.
    Well made, nothing breaks on them unless abused or neglected, and go pretty well for what they are.

    I'd daily the shizzle out of a nice clean manual one. Especially if someone had shoehorned the h22a vtec out of the later model ones into it for me.

    I MAY (emphasis on may) be able to fix this myself without removing the column from the car, as the innards of the switch fell out into the shroud. And then when I tried to open the bonnet to disconnect the battery, the release lever broke. You couldn't make this shit up if you tried.

    Back in 07' i posted every night elsewhere while on the grog.. makes for some interesting flashbacks, anyway i digress...

    I advised Big-Al to disconnect his fans in the staging lanes then after one of his runs he broke the bonnet cable trying to reconnect them and cooked his engine on the drive home.

    Who copped the flack over that one ya reckon ??

    I just watched this documentary about Stanislav Petrov, who was in charge of the USSR's nuclear weapon detection facility that falsely detected multiple nuclear missile launches from the USA aimed at them in 1983 due to a freak occurance with their satellite picking up sunlight reflected off clouds into the satellite, it passed all 30 of the verification checks the computer made to confirm nuclear attack on USSR from the USA.

    He is the one who made the decision not to inform chain of command due to not having visual confirmation, and subsequently potentially stopped the USSR from launching a nuclear counter attack on the USA.

    Its called 'The Man Who Saved the World' and its worth a watch:

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2277106/

    It follows him across his home and trip across the USA on a bit of a tour, it also has a renactment/movie scene of the incident with some actors which is pretty tense.

    Its amazing looking back into that period of time how tense everything was on the world stage and how out of control it all got.
