Hey guys, picked up this gem from the used car lot at work for a schmoking $450! Rego and RWC yeaaaa boi.
Here's the details:
Model: VS S1 Exec.
Powerplant: A sad 3.8Ecotec, clock says 420,000 but the engine was replaced, not sure when though, serviced regulary.
Single spinner, pov pack interior etc.
It's actually a very nice car. Wasn't to begin with, but after a new set of leads, plugs, and some ignition packs see's her running so smooth, much smoother than the VR these days. Not a single scratch or ding in it, took it to work and started switching parts between the two, cause this is becoming my new daily. So just some tiny things to make it look a bit neater, such as clear lens tailight lights (VR Berlina), clear indicators, and some HIDs.
Photos are down the bottom, some before and afters, future plan is to maybe drop it a bit, keep the ecotec running well, maybe some MACE Gear, but apart from that, shes just a cruiser, the VKs where the money goes
Oh, this does mean im selling the Blue VR, so if anyone wants or is interesting in a canterbury blue metallic 93 VR Berlina with sunroof, re-done interior, 233,000 on the clock, serviced every 5k, new plugs, new throttle body, new radiator, sl and sssl rear, on 15's with new tread, but faded and damage paint on the roof and boot, and a cracked windscreen (will be replaced on buying etc) and can get passed through rwc for $1700ono, let me know. You know what it looks like, view the thread.
Wow! what a bargain! I bet that cars in better condition then mine is! -$5000 repairs and thats still not fixed it all..
Give that engine bay and good ol' clean..
Ha yeah, well at the moment, the key wont turn in the barrell, like steerig lock, the ol' jiggle aint fixing it so im not sure where to go at the moment.
But yeah, plan is to re-do the top end and manifolds for the moment, MACE Cai, MACE T/B, MAnifold insulator, plenum spacer, etc, take off the rocker covers, clean eerything up, put it all back together, clean up the rails etc cause its a bit of a mess.
fair ride man. did you shunt off the VR?
and i knew i had this pic sitting around somewhere hahaha
Haha you champ! I'd since gotten rid of it haha.
And yeah i want to sell it, its been a great car, but time to let it go
