Ahhhh at last. Pictures.

It's nothing particularly special at the moment, but it's a helluvalot more roadworthy than the VP is now, so it's a good start.

I picked it up for $3000 in Sydney, NSW. Yes, I live in Brisbane, and yes that makes it a 1000km drive, but it was worth it. Brisbane prices are silly, and this car came with RWC and rego 'till 2009. One owner, logbook history, stock spec, all that.


Good bits:

Brand new tyres and factory stato mags
Factory LSD
All the power windows work, WTF
Service history
304 V8 with 265,000km on it
Transmission feels excellent
1.59 tonne towbar with electric trailer brake socket and Hayman Reese brake controller


Bad bits:

Rear spoiler, WTF
Bumps and scratches on front and rear bar
Shagged door seals
I havn't modified it yet.


Right now there's no huge plans for modifications and the like, as I actually have no money - but here's some pictures :)









And proof that it's actually my car - a picture with me in it:





--------------------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE: Lowered and manual
--------------------------------------------------------------------














--------------------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE: Aircon removed, power steering removed, sound deadening finished.
--------------------------------------------------------------------


















--------------------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE: Dashboard coming apart to remove the rest of the aircon! What a job!
--------------------------------------------------------------------









--------------------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE: And while we're ripping things out, why not the engine?!
--------------------------------------------------------------------

those stock wheels would be fun morton ;) ...when it finally dries up, have you found out what v8's do in the wet with 205's???????

And leave that spolier on the back, its not a big wank type, makes it look a bit classier in the rear than the average stato. i still reckon you would of been better off buying mine for 3500, if i hadn't already sold it!
