Well daylight saving in NZ is now well entrenched-but goes back a long time-longer than most would think. 1868 NZ standard time was set at 11h30m ahead of GMT. In 1927 daylight saving was first observed in NZ-but varying dates and degrees over subsequent years. Ignoring temporary emergency regulation during the war years, in 1946 NZ summer time of +12hrs GMT was adopted as NZ standard time-thus incorporating 30 minutes of daylight saving permanently-and daylight saving summer time reintroduced in 1975. So as I type this the time is 1-1/2 hours ahead of what it would have been on this date in 1867!
In any case the International dateline is partially to blame....and it's anything but straight! See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Date_Line

When I was working, I would complain to my wife, 'that if people want an hour of extra daylight, let 'em get up and hour earlier.' But now that I'm retired, I think DLS is a good idea.

Default Aust DST

Some anomalies with the current DST arrangements.

Yalata, in the western part of South Australia (GMT+10:30), is half an hour ahead of Coolangatta on the Qld Gold Coast (GMT+10).

Broken Hill is in NSW but operates on Central Time.

A group of settlements on National Highway 1 in the eastern part of Western Australia, adjoining South Australia, operate on their own unofficial Central Western Time. That splits the difference between Western Standard Time and Central Standard Time, GMT+8:45 (!). They remain 45mins in front of Perth and do not go to Daylight Saving, whereas South Australia does.

From East to West they are Eucla, Mundrabilla, Madura and Cocklebiddy.

The population of this region might optimistically be put at 200 souls.

The modern V-6 with fuel injection and electronic ignition can get you over 300 horsepower. But if you want to spice up the performance of your commute warrior, why not drop in one of these fully assembled, ready to run crate engines in it?

Owning your own gas station is recommended with some of these babies. Chevy short blocks are very popular because they churn out 300+ hp using 87 octane gas.

Originally, I suggested putting the engine in the family sedan, but then realized that the missus might start challenging the traffic police.
