    Re: Please explain S mode

    The shifter has for quite some time stopped being a lever which directly changes gears.

    It is merely a switch, which is weighted so that it feels as if you are doing something mechanical.

    My parents bought a Mk1 Cortina SW in 1964, and another in 1965. The Mkll Cortina 1300 De Luxe came out in 1968, so I guess also the new SW.

    Was that not the Holden Kingswood? From Australia, 3 speed auto, shifter on the column.

    Yes, exactly the above - GV5 Gun Tractor.
    Then the G6 self- propelled 6-wheeler howitzer and now the T5, which is the G5 gun on a Tatra 8-wheeler chassis.

    But we're OT. Sorry :-).

    I had no idea the 155 guns existed back then already.
