  1. Latest Breaking News: Frosty prised himself out of his nice warm loungeroom and trekked through the ice & snow to retrieve the Golden Tacho. I have a mental image of Indiana Jones battling Nazis, spiders, snakes and hot chicks, of course with Frosty just chuck some snow into your own mental image...come on, forget the hot chicks for now - CONCENTRATE PEOPLE! The negotiations have commenced behind closed doors and an agreement has been reached. The Chosen Item may leave the US within days. Don't worry Pontiac fanatics - you're not losing a tacho, you're simply relocating it to the oth
  2. So what you're saying is you'll get around to it in the year 2525? Yeah, can I convince you to mush through the snow a little earlier than that? In direct contrast we are sweltering through 35°C most days down here. Australia is either on fire or under water for most of the year.
  3. Yo Frosty, come on, man. Put your overcoat & snow shoes on and get out there and grab that tacho. Here I am roasting alive and working even more overtime to pay for more Pontiac parts. That car is gonna be gold plated by the time I finish with it! 'Finish with it.' Did y'all spot the irony there?
  4. True that, Wrongway. Even though I'm not married, I stick to the Happy Wife, Happy Life mantra. I want to come home to harmony, not someone who's itching for a fight. Women don't ask for much and it's not a lot of effort to do at least the minimum in order to maintain calm. There's not a lot of us good men left, so I keep telling her. When she finds a good man, I guess she'll let me know!
  5. I tried playing god once to my missus. The genital withering glare that she responded with made me run with my tail between my legs, back to the safety of the Pontiac engine bay where I plunged my head into and hoped she couldn't see me. We all know who wears the god-pants at my joint!
  6. Hey Wrongway, these are gold but priced like gold too. Admittedly, I reckon the NOS tach face is almost worth the ask. It's too good for my car - it'll stick out as the only new looking item amongst the general shabbiness of everything else! Anyway, many thanks. I tried all sorts of keywords but couldn't find them on my own. It looks like praying to a Supreme Being worked, because Frosty answered the call, not that he's a god...yet!

  8. No, they were just happy to get on the bus to take them to the airport: it's the only event that gets anyone excited. They should be feeling warm & fuzzy at the prospect of an additional chrome podded instrument that may be part of my car one day soon. I'll be sure to tell them.
  9. Yep-that picture just about sums up my reaction after finding said posts. I was supposed to be picking up passengers who were slowly roasting to death in the heat & humidity, but instead I sat alone in my airconditioned coach and frantically replied! It's okay, I picked up the sweating pissed off passengers eventually-nobody died.
  10. Holy shit! Thanks Kiwi-I'm still trying to work out how to use the site. Wrongway, I shall check your links-thanks. Frosty, let's talk. Send me some pics and I promise you it will go to a good home. You have all made my day. Many thanks.
  11. The dams are simply ornamental-no time, room or desire for extra critters. It's just nice to sit out the back on the patio and gaze over the lush rainforest that rings the dams and forms the bulk of our 'backyard.' It's my favourite place to ponder how I'm going to tackle the next Poncho task- much better than 3am wide awake in bed!
  12. Got it. In fact, we've been rained on all day. The 2 dams on my property that were just about gone are now overflowing, all our water tanks are overflowing and everything is drenched. That's okay - this is what happens in the Wet season: best time of year.
  13. Time Left: 14 days and 5 hours

    Like the one in the photo - I want to swap the console mounted vacuum guage in my 65 GP for a tach. I'm happy with just the face, the whole shebang with chrome pod, without it, trashed, rusty, not working, whatever you may have. Ignore where price says zero-we can negotiate. Thanks.

    NO VALUE SPECIFIED

    - AU

  14. Thanks Wrongway - I'm gonna try gap filler and will finish the entire job with a nice big batch of fibreglass resin which will hold everything together and I can sand or fill it to get the final finish. I fly back to work tomorrow so it'll have to wait for my return. See you all in 7 days. Oh, if anyone sees one of those beaut Pontiac tachs for sale (with chrome pod, without, trashed, rusty, not working, whatever) can you let me know? Later.
