  • Muscle Cars You Can Afford in South Africa

    Do you want a muscle car? If yes, then you are in luck because here are 6 classic Muscle Cars You Can Afford in South Africa. A huge thanks to AutoMart for the awesome article! Classic muscle cars are the big, loud and extreme burning machines that were produced by the likes of Ford, Chevy, Chrysler and even AMC. Featured here is a list of 6 of the most amazing classic muscle cars from the past 40 years or so that you can find in South Africa. 1971 FORD MUSTANG MACH 1 Estimated cost: R595 000 Horsepower: 375 Torque: 610 N•m (450 lb•ft) The 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is a legend when it comes to classic muscle cars. You would be hard pressed to find more bang for your buck when it comes to this beast! The 1971 saw another major restyling change for the Mustang. It was also to be the last restyling for the first generation Mustang. Introduced late in August of 1970, the new Mustang was more than two inches longer and almost two and a half inches wider than its 1970 predecessor. For the first time since the Mustang’s inception, the wheelbase was extended one inch to 109″. The 200 cid 6 cylinder was dropped along with the 428, the Boss 302, and the Boss 429. New engines for ’71 were the Boss 351, the 429, and the Ram Air 429. The Boss 351 produced 330 horsepower, while both 429 engines produced 370 horsepower. On the exterior, the famous Mustang corral returned. A new wide chrome strip on the edge of the front fenders and hood was borrowed from the 1969 Shelby’s. The long hood now turned up at the windshield to cover the hidden wipers. Large, bold, triple lens tail lights appeared on the rear of the new Mustang. Flush mounted door handles replaced the earlier surface mounted units. The interior featured standard high-back buckets, a mini console, and an all new instrumentation layout. Power windows were offered for the first time. The Mach 1 continued to be offered for ’71. It was available with any of the V8 engines. A special honeycomb grille and color keyed front bumper were unique to the Mach 1 model. The chrome hood and fender mouldings were replaced with color keyed trim. “Mach 1” decals were placed on the fenders and deck lid and a special black or argent…

  • Know your rights at a roadblock

    With the holiday season upon us, so the police presence on the roads will increase. Know your rights if and when you are stopped either in a roadblock or by a police officer. To start off we would like to say thanks to Anthony Whatmore for this great article and information. Below are some articles giving advice on what to do when being pulled over. Understand that these articles are guides and do not replace the advice of your lawyer. Most drivers are uncertain of what their rights are when stopped at roadblocks or confronted with suspicious police behaviour. Be aware of these points when confronted by real or alleged police officers: Note that under South African Law uniformed South African Police Service members (SAPS) have the same powers as uniformed traffic officers (JMPD) or other Metropolitan police forces.* *The word police used in the body of this document refers to both of the above. Roadblocks If stopped at a roadblock you have the right to: • Ask for the person’s police certificate of appointment which includes his picture, name, rank, force number and where stationed: Section 334 (2) (a) of the Criminal Procedure Act 51 of 1977 • If these details are not given, you can ask to see the roadblock commander or most senior officer on the scene • If you have any doubt about the authenticity of the roadblock, you can ask to be taken to the closest police station • If the roadblock is legal, you have the right to ask what its purpose is. Even so, the person is not compelled to tell you if the reason is classified. The number of vehicles being stopped may indicate the status of the roadblock • You have the right to be treated with respect at all times and have the further right to get the details of any officer who has treated you unjustly • You must co-operate with all reasonable instructions, but you can question your position should you feel that a violation of your constitutional rights or your rights under the Criminal Procedure Act, 51 of 1977 is occurring • You must at all times treat any officer with respect and the dignity attached to his rank and office, although you may be firm in upholding your legal rights • You must identify yourself as the driver of the vehicle and supply proof of your driving licence.
