Re: A warning for all pre war owners.....

I may be wrong but I thought it was the case that pre-war cars were negative earth and at some time, possibly after WW2, that cars became positive earth. Then the more modern cars reverted to negative earth. There must have been a reason to change but it would be interesting to know why it went from...

Re: '63 DQ450

Number plates

Re: Oops! As posted within the last 40 mins.
