How many made their own radio?  Remember the crystal radios?  Made from bits and pieces, long wire going outside for antenna and ear phones. No batteries required. Kevin

Yep did this one, but totally forgotten about it ! My father in his working day was a radio tech , he also taught us to make & wind our own electric motors.

Spot on JP....he did have an old EK wagon and I think is was originally salmon Cameo Beige with a white roof....but I still remember he handed painted it blue with a paint brush.

My older brother used to have an FC that he used to hoon around the park in as well as a few old triumph motor bikes etc.

But yeah, it was a salmony colour....  ;D

How could you ever forget them?  They were priceless. 

The 60s gave us the Three Stooges on TV.  Unfortunately they were banned from Sydney TV in about '68 because too many kids were playing Stooges and hitting each other on the head with hammers.

Arh Green Bottle n The Three Stooges, how good were these shows?  :cup:

In the early 70's I would catch the same Caboolture to Brissie train as Delvene. She was not only pleasing to the eye but an extremely nice, down to earth person.

Early 70's my first car was a Morris Minor 1000,  push button ignition start, & if a flat battery wouldn't give her a start, out came the crank handle ( did get some cracked knuckles until I learnt)

There was no shortage of them on the roads from the 50s on to about the early 80s.  I occasionally say a hot low light Morrie in the car park at the North Sydney Technical College in the early 60s.  Its engine was a screaming hot Peugeot.  There was story in one of the magazines after it clocked 118 miles per hour on a flying 1/8 of a mile run on the old Castlereagh airstrip in western Sydney a couple of years before it became a drag strip.

Then there was the Goggomobile sedan with its supercharged Goliath flat four mounted where the back seat used to be.  It ran 14 1/5 second quarter mile times at Castlereagh and I saw it a few times at Hornsby with the owner's wife doing the shopping in it.

The 50s and 60s were a great time for fibreglass sports car bodies with the Buckle coupe being on of the best.  http://www.bucklecoupe.com.au/BuckleMotors01.htm  The Milano GT was not bad either along with the Bolwell.  http://www.bolwellcarclubnsw.com/page23.htm

A mate had a 48 Moggy  low light two door fitted up with a heavily worked Cooper S motor mounted North South taken out to 1375 cc running a side draught Weber sucking  Avgas  / Datto 1200 4 speed and diff .. Was a scary ride at well over a 100 mph . But smelled and sounded great due to the Avgas .
