Hey Guys,
I bought this calais a few weeks ago for $2,400.

I've wanted one for a while so im pretty stoked.

The previous owner owned it for 15 years and he's the owner of a local upholstery business. He's pretty meticulous so it really is tidy as.

I got the whole "I've owned it for almost its whole life - please look after it" speech lol.

Basically completely stock - 174,000kms

New air conditioner, Tinted windows, 4 new tyres, Exhaust system replaced with a new stock one, Lowered on pedders low's, Complete service history

Paint looked a bit faded when i bought it - but gave it a cut and polish and it came up like new.

If anyone likes the look of it I'll chuck some more pics up soon. Cheers.

Haha, yeah thanks mate. It had a bit of a "classic" appeal to it for me. It's been well looked after, and with the original mudflaps and stuff it looked really original. I don't intend to do anything to it - its just a good round town or highway car :)
