    Will never happen. We revolted the last time they tried that. We'll do it again :)
    our road maps would be smaller

    Thank god I have GPS, I would never get there with a metric system map.. Kilometers, meters, Liters--
    I would pull my hair out!! We got our own standard.. I'd need to go buy another couple thousand dollars worth of tools for starters, I would be forced to drive a foreign car, I have a dodge and a Chevy.. Wait until I'm gone, then change it!!

    Don`t get your knickers in too much of a knot Vinny. When Australia changed there were self adhesive speedometer dials available so you continued to use your existing car speedo with the needle now pointing at MPH and KPH on the new dial. I had a Holden Premier at the time powered by the Chevvy 307 5litre donk and all I did was get a new stick on dial.

    Can I get a sticker for my SAE tools?? :)
