Re: Do you think we'll ever switch to Metric?

Hi Guys Love the debate... I know I will be kicked out for saying this.... but I am a bloke and went to an all-boys boarding school and live in a metric country...but there are still things in imperial. But the best thing about metric....is my Gentleman's Sausage if measured in metric will become en...

Re: ENICAR Seapearl 600 or Healthlands 100 Fathom – The Enigmatic Watch from the Un-loved Swiss Maker

Hi Chris Thank you. The Kontiki looks similar, both funky dials. I am not sure the original date of the Eterna. Eterna another interesting brand - that I have a lot of. My Opa (grandfather) had one circa 1950 one of the early Eterna-Matic. Only the automatics were called Eterna Matic, while the manu...

ENICAR Seapearl 600 or Healthlands 100 Fathom – The Enigmatic Watch from the Un-loved Swiss Maker

I am embarrassed. I like dive watches, I make dive watches, I live 400km inland from the seas, I do not dive, and I have bugger all dive watches. I was planning to show you my Enicar Divette – but it was in a sorry state and I decided no. Why not one of my favourites the Enciar Seapearl 600? I wrote...

Re: Grand Tour S2:E7 Lancia vs. Audi Rally 1983

Thanks...I will watch it. Make me sad that another BIG company absorbs a GREAT company like Lancia and kills it. I had a Lancia Fulvia HF 1.6 (not the fanalone - the later one)....fantastic. More fun than my 2.2 911, but built like shit.

Hi Matt – don’t be too anxious (so hard when you are a parent). She is good, just has a different way of processing the same information. I say better…ha-ha Everyone has been great. Thank you. I am getting too old and too grumpy to try and pretend I am normal. We all have some dysfunction. 2 out of ...

Re: New Guy from Australian Bush

Snootydog – The 500 Abarth 695 esse esse was a nice car – it actually kept up with traffic. I was pulled over by the police at 4am doing a test drive at 140km – not bad as I said to the policeman – he was a young bloke and told me to go home as no one would believe him that I could do 140km The Lanc...

My 2 cents worth - Kaspersky. Even the 3 girls have it and (touch wood) all remains well. I do pay, but worth the peace of mind.

Re: New Guy from Australian Bush

Thanks for the tip on the links…makes navigation much easier. River Rat – love to see some of your collection. My Eterna’s are mostly dress. It all started with my Opa (grandfather’s) 1957/58 gold capped Eterna Matic. I am a little upset that Enicar (the real ones pre-1980) have risen in price…I got...

3mins before we go…..
Yes mate agree. I miss the old 911. But Kate (the 928) has Air Con and is still very chuckable. Not as raw as the 911…but different. Porsche do not make bad cars, they are just different.
