Yes, thought about that but I feel that if someone is going to be a member of a club they need to be involved and take part.
I don't see me being able to do this at this point in time (or there lack of - time) so was also wondering about Historic vehicle rego.
Only issue with this is I think you have to have a car which is unmodified from original.
I am guessing a 2" lift kit may breach this requirement and possibly the swapping from auto to manual might also be a problem.
OK for now but wish there was another alternative.

MY wagons are my 2nd favourite Subaru & there's not many left, so anything you can do to keep it & not let it get wrecked or crushed, is a good thing. Check up on current laws, I know in Vic things have changed a lot recently

How so?

I'm wondering how long it'll be until they tighten up the club rego requirements... Seems like anything and everything over 25 years old is being put on club rego.

As for Subaru stuff - I'm thinking I want to tighten up the rear end on Ruby Scoo and make a new bash plate that'll actually do some protecting...

Cheers

Can't even begin to think about wrecking/crushing the car so no danger of this as long as I have a say in things.
82 Touring wagons aren't something I have seen for a very long time.
This got me to thinking, wouldn't it be interesting to be able to find out how many of a certain car are still registered on the roads.
Probably info reserved for the likes of Police etc.

They had a talk about it at the last Subaru 4wd Club of Vic meeting, but I kinda tuned out lol. One thing is the car must be unregistered & pass a RWC to go onto club rego. They've also changed the allowable kms travelled

Sounds like time for the Prado strut mod

They should be semi collectible but doesn't seem to be any demand for them, a real shame

I'm sure that's a matter of public record. Agencies like RACV publish stats like this all the time, just a matter of knowing where to look

It's in the ancient rear shafts and lack of roll pins holding them in... Suspension wise I think it's all good

Cheers
