It says here https://www.parliament.vic.gov.au/image ... chemes.pdf on page 7 that there is no evidence that speed restrictions on P drivers save lives but surely changing lanes continuously with a speed limited truck would be more dangerous apart from the fact P drivers are never taught how to merge on a freeway.

My current car is my sister's 2002 Hyundai Tiburon, which she bought in 2016 and is past 300,000kms and still running like new apart from general wear and tear like peeling paint in the front bumper and fading paint on the boot just below the rear window.

Got a cat-back exhaust installed back on November and came with silencers which can be installed and taken out at will. They're currently installed and I despise how the car sounds. I'd take them off but my mum is concerned a non-silenced cat-back Tiburon will attract police attention.

I want a change of scenery and replace that car with the Toyota Soarer (Z30). But their numbers here are scarce unless you import them from Japan where they are big in number.

My brother had 4 Prius and one Camry hybrid and bought a new hybrid Hino every time they improved on them, having driven the Camry on a few occasions I was impressed with it especially in city driving.
I think full electric cars may be OK in warm climates but definitely not in cold especially with our long distances.

Americans are so smart although with hybrids the motor doesn't rev much. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_W8clK4mb8

Bedford Bus Model

Post by Sluister »

Just joined this website!

Just wondering if anyone knows the model of this Bedford Bus.

I believe it’s a 1971 year with a 303 engine.

Any ideas too on where it might of operated would be awesome.

Thanks in advance!

Victoria has great road rules where everybody drives exactly 2km below the speed limit and you do not get the lane changing caused by L plates and red and green P plates or point to point truck speed cameras that have empty trucks overtaking loaded trucks uphill only to have them pass you on the other side.
Lets hope we go their way because I am sure it would be less stressful and possibly even safer. https://www.whichcar.com.au/car-news/ns ... mera-signs
