I have just been wondering about a few things and I don't know if anyone can offer any advice.
I have a stock (apart from slight engine mods) Anglia.
I never see many other stock Anglia's or Pop's, so its hard to draw comparisons.
The only issue I have with Henry is the wandering on straight fast roads. He isn't lowered (think he has the reverse leaf spring) and has original steel wheels and crossply tyres. Also has stock wings etc.
On a stock car, could I get slot mags on? What is the PCD?
If I got radials, would it make much difference?
I'm pretty sure the handling is due to him having a high centre of gravity and skinny high tyres, but I don't want to lower him.
Maybe I will eventually get used to driving him on motorways but when I drove him to santa pod, i was so stressed, my back was killing me when I got there. It didn't help it was a really windy day.
So does anyone have any opinions on the above, and also, people with lowered pop's, rods etc, do you ever have similar experiences of wandering?
Its my first old car and my fella has a lowered beetle so its completely different.
Thanks for your help.
