I think you are right. If it is in Helsinki, Finland then it is 60o 10' North and the only one close is in Canada at 55o 2' North! There are some in the UK and one on its way to Glasgow Scotland (55o 52' North), which is a little further north of the one in Canada.





As for south I guess maybe someone in New Zealand would have to claim that prize.

I changed the rims just because the old Cragars didn't let the front wheels turn without hitting the fenders. Those Centerline-clones are just what-we-have-on-the-shelf-today which fit properly from the local wheelshop. I'd prefer the Bathurst Globes but we'll see. Thank you for your opinion, but I'm really not removing the vinyl top. I like to keep the car as original as possible without being too purist.


"I see a line of cars and they're all painted black", I'll paint it black. :)


Btw. It's 3-speed FMX, like the same thing it came with from the Geelong.
