Re: WANTED: Auto Trimmer/Upholsterer in Durban or Pmb?

Hi to all

The rear seats were all rexine while the front had cloth inserts.
A logical explanation could be the addition, or rather replacing of the opel gt front seats. GM most probably did not see the
necessity to change the already covered rear seat.

Einstein was not only a physician/mathematician, but a very wise man too.

He quoted:
Weak people revenge.
Intelligent people forgive.
Intelligent people ignore.

Think of the possibilities once applied?

Re: Can Am - ZN

Jacques, Total black, it's a pity of the 1974 photo that I cannot up/down load? The photo will also confirm the wheels never to be silver, but rather a greenish/grey primer colored epoxy! I have one original wheel which is still unpainted, which I want to use for my restoration as a bench mark. The ...

Re: Can Am - ZN

Hi canam zn Your car is awesome, so glad you decided to reveal it to the rest of the world. I guess in a certain way, being stored away for so long had it's disadvantages, but on a more positive note, resulted with so much less wear and tear, than should it have been on the road. Jacques, I spoke to...

My brother in law and his cousin each bought themselves a canam band new in 1974. Both were fitted with the glass fiber v...
