It's baack

Post by Mick » Tue Oct 03, 2017 9:54 pm

most of you would know about this car a friend and i built it around 21 years ago, i don't like to let a sale escape so when i was offered what i considered good money only days after i had it on the road and registered i sold it but not straight away i took it to the summernats and sold it to the guy the day i got home, well i kind of always regretted it and had the chance a couple of times over the years to get it back but first time didn't really have the money second time i missed it by one day, that was approx 12 years ago and the car then basically dissapeared the odd person would say they had seen it or thought they had seen it but nobody could tell me where it was, then the other night it popped up on facebook some quick messages soon had me in contact with the owners son who said yes he thinks his father would sell it he doesn't use it any more so the next day off to QLD met the son and went to his dad's place and did a deal :D

yeah a few cracks in the bog here and there nothing real serious and way better than i expected and for over 20 years of a car that has done alot of miles i think it's pretty good, the thing i'm really spun out about is how good the paint is for over 20 years old

Gotta agree with you there Jay, the top photo with the purple fatties is its best look I reckon.

Who the hell would have flames and an overrider grille anyway ???? :lol: :lol: :lol: :D
