Exactly.  Buying my work truck effectively lowered my monthly bills by being able to put the other cars on classic insurance.

Most of the classic/collector car insurance outfits require you to have another regular car with a normal insurance policy on it as well.

There may be some that will do a stated value policy on your primary car, but then you would be up against the "non-commuter" requirement.

My plan was to sort out the SC-SX Tune stuff this summer,but summer is over.

I did recently make an attempt at recording an overview of the software interface.
If it is of value I can record a cleaner version of some of what I have learned.

Now I know about the insurance!

Looking forward to hearing about your test run. If you could manage a video, I'm sure many of us would watch it...

I never understood the point of the Hustler, why was it built? What was it used for?

Mobile greenhouse LOL.
A lot of William Towns designed vehicles were quirky to say the least.
There was a Moke looking 6 wheeler designed around the same time (name escapes me right now) but much the same pretty useless, on the other hand at least you did not cook on a hot day in it but really how many hot days does England have.

The Aussie Moke looks decent apart from the rust in the cross member area and it is shabby under the bonnet.

Did they ask for an odometer reading?  Mine didn't and I even brought it up and she said don't worry about it.  77.gif

Yep collector insurance.  Can't use as a comutter but can drive it as much as I want really.  I selected 5-7500 miles a year which is more than I realistically do.  Must stay garaged and I listed both garages it lives in.

Vikram, just running stock brake bias on the rear subframe.  I'll know more tomorrow if it's braking too much in the rear.
