MiDFur or bust!

I spent today helping to rebuild a 20+-year-old car that we're planning to drive down to MiDFur X in December (in Melbourne, over 1600km away).

MiDFur X is in Melbourne. I've edited the entry so my overseas readers won't be left out of the loop, though a lot have heard of MiDFur X already.

I'm no auto mechanic, but the car next to it looks like it might have a better chance of making the trip. :-)

That's a 1977 Daimler limousine. It looks like it's more in one piece but I don't know what shape it's in mechanically. We don't get a choice unfortunately. It's also going to be Byron's general runabout car so I think a 1.2L engine is a much better choice than 5.3L. :) I wouldn't mind the extra storage capacity of the Daimler though for the trip down. It has to take three people plus a fursuit and general luggage.

I see the problem: the steering wheel is in the wrong side of the car!

Damnit! It's so easy to miss these things when you're in a hurry.
