Syncro - hope you find someone if you are serious. For me to commute would be interesting.
I was thinking I could come over if you had a spare bed!!!
On second thoughts, that won't work. No one leaves and no one enters Australia at the moment other than returning citizens.

I don't think being with a fellow Model A enthusiast would be a problem. Getting out of the country would be though - well, at least till they ease the restrictions.
So far, since we were pretty much locked down, I have serviced one of two modern cars, nearly finished painting the inside of the house and redoing the landscaping at the front. Till I service the other car and change the gearing in the diff of my Tudor, I have plenty to keep me occupied. Then, my plan is to annoy my wife. Wish me luck and a speedy recovery!

Firearm and ammunition sales banned here today. Seems the crazies are trying to arm themselves.

Or the sane a little late to the party. Like atheists in a foxhole, there's a time for everyone to be a hypocrite. Let's hope you're correct.

That's where ours started 3 weeks ago. Got the news last Friday that they will be closed for another month at least. First 2 they let slide. Now they are distributing chrome books to kids in need and are starting online work. Between my wife and I we did a couple of hours with our 8 yo yesterday. Right now they have a couple of hours worth of assignments to complete every other day.
