Damn, looks mint man. That daily is homo, clearly you shoulda gotten a Suzuki Mighty Boy :p
Nah, I couldn't find a Mighty Boy with the optional 2 speed auto hehehe.

Its my daily for the work run, carting stuff to the tip as I am doing house renovations, and chucking the bikes in when I go mountain biking. Its nice to drive, 5 speed manual, 2 litre, and the average fuel consumption is 9l/100km, as opposed to 14l/100km in the HSV.........

Oh, waaaay better build quality too ;)

Well I don't think I'm going to sell it anymore. When I finish renovating my house I'll haul it off to the panel beaters for a touch up and get the interior retrimmed.

I took it out of the shed on the weekend, the first time its been out in nearly 6 months. Bought a new battery and she fired up first go.

Reversed out and noticed the puddle on the floor, and then I smelt it - a fuel line was leaking.

Got that sorted and took it for a drive. It's amazing how crude and rough these things can be, especially when you are used to driving much more modern cars :p

Heh reminds me of when occasionally ive gone from driving my commodore to my mums toyota echo and i literally laugh outloud at its speed, 70-80km is about 5 secs 0-100 about 2 mins.
I honestly find no difference in ride quality from my commodore to that echo and my commodore is a 94 and the echo is a 2004 i think, maybe you need to get a newer model commodore and get the best of both worlds: power/ride quality

Heheh, my VP has got nothing on my Suzuki in the way of ride quality and general overall quiteness, and thats saying something because the Suzuki ain't the most refined vehicle out there hehe.

Its just good to hop into it every now and again and then try to remember why I ever continued to drive it as a daily for 5 years :p

Cheers.

I have the plates in storage at the RTA in NSW, I'm in QLD.

I'll probably sell the plates sooner or later as I can't get that combination up here.....
