Hey guys,

Just inherited my folks VT Wagon...Damage and all. Mum recently fell asleep at the wheel and hit a concrete barrier on the freeway, in return, the car had to buckled rims, one bent crossmember and a bent steering rack!

The condition i get to have it for free is if i get her fixed up! which is currently happening. Only around $1200 which aint that bad! So from her its going to be my little project. Mum also had the habbit of hitting things so there are countless amounts of dents and scratches around the car! Most of the door handles have been replaced so which results in different coloured door handles and one black mirror, and one red mirror.

The plus about this car that Dad lowerd it number of years back with Superlows all round and at the same time had a full camber kit done!To also top it off, it comes with a semi decent (old but decent) stereo! Forgot to Mention the engine was replaced with a newy 2500 K's ago! so practically a brand new engine!

Ill keep posting here to keep you guys up to date with my progress of fixing her up! will also get some more photos soon too!
