Registration whinge!


Recommended Posts

I just got my registration renewal today, it is now risen to the lofty heights of $682.95 for the 12 months. I am quite certain that nearly every year since I got my license and car in 94 that rego has gone up by $50 a year. It has risen $48.20 since last year! And to think I used to complain about paying $320 a year to have my little 1000cc mini on the road. Looks like my other mini shall be spending more time in the olds garage as I can't afford to register it aswell unless I put it under Veteran rego and all the restrictions that go with it. Time to get serious on personal injury claims, no more whiplash claims for reverse parking incidents!

Sorry about that rant, just needed to have a whinge.

Yeah, I have the Skyline and my trusty Gemini Panelvan for work to register, and I am really beginning to object to paying well over a grand just to register, lets not mention insurance. The mini is definately staying in the garage, or maybe I should sell it. That was my original intention when I bought the skyline, but nearly 2 years down the track I haven't been able to bring myself to do it. Its one of only 500 produced in Oz!

Maybe I should get a different job so I can rid myself of the Gemini, or just resign to being broke, mmmm decisions.

How much is it for an eight these days? I shudder to think.

Lets just be patient, lets see, my skyline is a 94 so in 21 years I will be able to register it under veteran rego for about $150 or around there. Sweet, can't wait!

I should probably drive my line less, but lets face, I walk downstairs to go for a drive and I am face with a decision, Gemini......Skyline......Gemini.......Skyline. Its a no brainer! If I didn't work on rough, dusty construction sites, and work didn't require me to carry around survey gear, the Gem would be gone. By the same token I got the line cause I was sick of driving around in a dirty, S&$tty car all af the time. Might be time to go back to computers and one car, one rego, one insurance.

Free ute! Thats nothing to laugh about, even if it is a Ford!

Says he with a Gemini.

Sorted fuel system this afternoon with new lines,filter, pressure sensor and mounted ethanol sensor. Fitted a new fuel pump with wiring bulkheads. Going to start with tidying up and reinstall the body and engine looms. Need to wire a few new sensors . Planning to test cooling system for leaks as well.

    • So I thought the recent developments from HKS around the RB26 at the TAS for 2022 might be an interesting topic of discussion. For those that haven't seen it, this write-up on Speedhunters explains some of the points of difference with some detailed photos to boot. Here's the article in question; HKS RB26 TAS2022 It looks to include twin VCT, a  newly designed twin-chamber plenum, and electronic internal wastegates and recirculation valves,  just to name a few.
