    Howzit?... First I have to say that it's not really mine... it belongs to the mrs...
    But I do get to do all the work on it (surprise, surprise)

    Live near Wellington, have done for 4-5 years... Originally I'm from Melbourne tho.

    Already been helped out by you guys with the stereo installation...

    I would've joined clubVR4 in NZ, but I can't afford the membership price when all I really want to do is learn a few things... and you guys seem to share info more freely (even if most NZ members are from clubvr4):D

    My main transport is a 1971 Mercedes thats been dumped in the weeds, tinted and painted flat-black... but I love driving the Legnum so much I'm trying to get the mrs to drive the merc more (not working too well tho):confused:

    Cheers guys. I wanted a Legnum since I saw my first one about 4 years ago when I got here.... I nearly had the mrs get one then but they were still $10k so she bought a mazda lantis v6 at that time... lucky (?) for me, she wrote it off and we picked up the legnum last week for $5k... I'm stoked, she's gettin the hang of it and the 3.5y/o daughter loves it too!
    next car= maybe a VR4... not sure tho... would also like a 65 merc....:confused:

    They sure do Trevor.

    Good to see our limited technical info is already proving useful, just wait until we really start hacking into these machines.
    And its even better to see we are getting more of you guys from New Zealand joining up and participating. Our NZ section might get some use after all.

    Lol... but the merc is a cruiser and it turns heads more than a VR4 in NZ... :p

    If I do anything interesting, I'll take heaps of photos


    Thanks for the welcome everyone... and Trevor, I won't tell you what you can get a VR4 for... (mind you, I don't know the price people are paying at home???)

    not my VR-4..especially when it starts banging and popping and spitting flames on the overrun when it retards the timing and on full throttle can be heard from over 1km away :D

    Welcome, Mike! Cant imagine why the missus prefers the legnum, although the high novelty factor of an old skool car like the merc would be good
