Did that (the lottery bit). Unfortunately avoiding that accident used all of my luck

Thought I'd save a bit of fuel cost taking it to the suspension place for new rear springs (considering already paid annual roadside fee...)

Was fine until hit freeway then heard belt/whistling type noise kinda like supercharger. Stopped & checked but seemed OK. Then was fine until above 80kmh / 2.5k rpm when noise came back. Looked at volt gauge and was maxxed out at 18v 'redline'. Immediately pulled off to exit ramp just as went 'bang/pop' and died. No elecs at all. Fusebox was fine, alternator turned, belts ok, but had tripped the switch to my audio amps (must have done earlier as I had no music volume prior, even though head unit powered up). Tried jumper cables but still no juice anywhere.

RACV would only send a towtruck, not a roadside guy as was on exit ramp. So towed to suspension place & can suss from there. Auto elec Wade is booked till next year, but said to check the fusable link near starter and that regulator failure may be why overcharged. Is 1yo batery but I reckon that's gone pop too.

Anyway, is in a good place. Props to Steve form Allmakes Suspension in Kensington who I've used several times on my cars. Genuine 'old school' guy, 68 Camaro owner and was totally cool about taking delivery of a dead car. Stay tuned!

Probably just an alternator that died Deano. May have taken out a main fuse. The car still looks like porn though even on a tilt tray

I replaced my ****ty variable steering box with a 2 1/4 turn box out of a 91 Trans Am. Having had a 76 LT Camaro also with the variable box, they all should have had these ones. Feels so much better and what a muscle car should feel like. Road feel is 1000% improved too.
