Why 2021 will be the year of the long weekend

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

Nissan Prairie Joy 1995 M11 as EV conversion donor vehicle or as parts - Qiubo (David) Su

Qiubo (David) from Half Moon Bay

Nissan Prairie Joy 1995 M11 engine overheats due to cooling system severe problems occurred at mid July 2020 (the radiator cracks and leaks, can't hold any coolant or water. there might be some rust/residue built up inside the cooling system to make the circulation very poor.

The water pump might have problems also, making it difficult to circulate the coolant through the cooling system. The coolant temperature sensor might be damaged also, leading the cooling fans to stop working.The engine has been working well before and no oil leaking issue).

At the moment, the engine starts well, but after driving for 15+ minutes, the engine starts to overheat.

Purchased this vehicle in Jan 2012, but hardly used it, as having been working from home, and parking it most of the time at the garage. Mainly used it for shopping, visiting family members nearby. Passing WOF easily most of the time before, the latest WOF and Rego were both expired at early of 2020 (can check the details here www.carjam.co.nz...), and didn't update them due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

1) The vehicle body/frame/structure, transmission, clutch, braking, power steering and internal & external etc. conditions are quite good for its age. If looking for a donor vehicle for an Electric Vehicle conversion, this is a quite good option to consider if it meets your EV conversion design criteria.

Or

2) Sold as separate parts piece by piece.
