Wow didnt know that Jersey have those registration plates. So no problem exporting the Wolseley there as you could use the same numbers :mrgreen:

most probably the J plate means Jesselton... KK's old name... no longer used....

if the plate was to be transferred to semenanjung here, they'll probably add an alphabet after the numbers... to avoid duplication with early johor plates...

Ya , ToE you are rite, the J alphabet used in Sabah is for Jesselton, the previous name for K.K.
When I went to Sandakan the chap there has a Ford Capri with a J prefix.
They do add a alphabet behind the no. there too.

The single S , I think was Sandakan's early alphabet,
The SK is from Kudat district,
The L is from Labuan,
The EU, I think is from Sarawak.
That Audi 100 GLS, brings back memories, my good fren had one and I rode
in it many times, but it is a problematic car always overheating.

Only the 2nd car is rare here , it's a Vauxhall
the rest are the normal fare you will find at classic car meets.

Of course there are Alfas and Fiats in KK.

One of my neighbours has a '70s 105-series Alfa GTV, and I know of at least one 'step-front'. A childhood friend's dad has a Fiat 850 Coupe in gold and I've also seen an X1/9.

Of interest too may be Ferraris 308 GT4 & GTB, Maserati Merak, and Lancia Beta. I believe a former Chief Minister of Sabah, Harris, owned the 308 GT4.

Cheers,

There are Alfas & Fiats in KK. You just need to know where to look! ;)

A neighbour has a 105-series GTV and a friend's dad an 850 Coupe. I've also seen a white 'ste-front' and a Montreal with a Jap engine. Sacrilege.

Of interest too may be Ferraris 308 GT4 & GTB, Maserati Merak, Lancia Beta plus numerous other British classics.

Cheers,
mike

Wow Mike is this true? If so where?? My friend has just been posted to KK but he is too scared to bring his bella since he was scared no one would be able to do the maintenance required for his bella..

Perhaps you could advise me where to look for workshop so i can advise my friend rather than letting his bella collect dust here.

Hmm...I wonder why the double-posting!

Anyway, I can't help your friend with his dilemma yet. I'm still in the U K. I'll know more next year.

However, my dad has someone that comes to the house to maintain our cars. I don't know how he is with Alfa Romeos though. The other alternative would be F & M Motors. The owner, Jimmy, used to maintain the Montreal and the 'step-front' until he ran into problems with the Montreal's fuel injection system. Maybe that's the reason behind the Jap engine! We used to go to them but that was quite some time ago.

Cheers,
mike
