    My Redline isn't going anywhere either. Usually I would have bought a new V8 commodore by now........... but since they don't exist anymore, and a ZB is no more appealing to me than any other car available, the wife bought a new car instead.
    So I'm keeping my car for the weekends and I'll buy a 20k 2nd hand car soon to run work kms up on.

    Used to, newer cars run the A/C from an electric motor, like the power-steering, so it's not relying on the drive belt(s).

    Firing a spark into a charged cylinder will supply enough impetus to restart a warm engine. Some manufacturers use this method, some us a TS (twin solenoid) starter system.

    It all depends on the manufacturer.
