I apologise for talking about my private life in an austere magazine, such as “Workshop Manager” but Grandpop has just dropped into the shop, and I really enjoy our time together. We’re sitting on milk crates trying to digest a hamburger and drink and Gramps has asked a few questions that take some thought to answer (boy does that put me under pressure). It appears he is buying a late model 4WD (I think it’s called “End of Life Crisis!”) and he wants to know what he should do to get a good run out of it, hearing that vehicles have changed a lot since he last owned a‘Standard Vangard’.

Hey Grandpa, to answer your first questions not a lot of vehicles come with crank handles in fact I can’t think of any at the moment. The engines are fitted with oil filters and air cleaners as standard now, no hand throttles and choke knobs. And get this, it is now legal to switch the tail light on or off without getting out of the car, wowie!

Sit back Gramps, next I’ll run you through some of the things you asked about that may be different on a modern vehicle.
