Hi Roland,
We have always come back "heavy" from our trips to the UK and NZ...even 
post-911.  Our last trip to NZ in the fall of 2004 netted the Harcourt 
intake, a P76 intake (which fits the Buick 340 quite closely) a pair of 
SU's for the "75", a pair of NOS taillamp assemblies for the P6B, early 
P4 tailamps, and numerous parts books.  The previous trip included a 
GM180 bellhousing for an SE2.  Transportation Security doesn't even 
blink. I just wish we had found the doorskin for the coupe before we 
flew home, shipping it cost the Edward Winchester a small fortune.  I 
still owe him.  God bless all Kiwis.
