    I had a 1303 s back when God was a lad, and was under the impression it was a 1600. Nice car that was.

    I didn't think they ever put the 1600 into the beetle saloon. The 1600 was always known as the 'Porche 1600'.

    I seem to remeber that the fan was moved somehow......

    I really don't know tech stuff about the trike as the guy who had it before could not find them. He was a bit of a numpty.

    I first thought that it was "eau de nil" as commonly seen in engine rooms of large ships coating just about everything, but it was not polite to suggest that. Almost the same colour, though.......
