So today , = yeah so sort of middle of the week, = what day of the week is it?

= yeah still unemployed ( only just started to eat into the redundancy)

Service = etc and rotate the wheels/ tyres this morning.

A mate ( same age = 2 weeks apart) ( made redundant same day),
We're 13 years old or so my missus recons = add the 2 digets of my/ his age together ,
and his missus came over mid arvo.
Looking at buying a replacement for the suzuki swift,
Let them drive the FOST.
Both love , although for slightly different reasons .
Love the go and handling but they're not into modified at all !!!!!!!!
I seriously wanted to take them out in the monaro .
Maybe next time!!!!!!!

I have toyed with the idea of selling my SS and buying an RS.
Would still not be a daily but I think I would really miss that V8 chopping away!!

A mate back in the UK swapped a Mk3 ST for an RS.
350+ bhp, 4 wheel drive, goes like a stabbed rat by all accounts.

Can't compete with a big V8 for a nice noise, but a commodore wouldn't see which way it went.
The mk2 with the straight 5 would be interesting.

I agree!! It would be a little rocket. Was looking at this one while contemplating!

An RS would be aursome = I soo drooled over this when it came out.
Soo hard core for a modern vechice ( also going to be a classic especially as the new RS got canned).
Does the ST run rings around my commies driving/ cornering wise= yes .
I absolutely love using!!!

If I could only have 1 vechice = sorry the Monaro CV8 = still wins!!

And no !
I was a little surprised.
He rang me the next day ( it is ultimately her car)
= got a Renault Megne GT
The prices of focus st are quite a bit more than 6 to 8 months ago
It's got a little less power but 4 wheel steer .
Hopefully in the next few weeks get to drive but personally I'd say the engagement and playfulness of the ST would still be the winner for me.

So a month ago started another contract job for / with my mate = for ambulance nsw = hopefully 6 months 2 days a week.
Hopefully alot of this is going to be spent ( later in the year ) on my toys = the cv8 and the maloo.!!!!!!!
It's dam dirty= a few kms of dirt/gravel roads =to his place .
Hilariously, shamefully the dirt/gravel road is in way better condition than quite a lot of the tarded roads.
Washed it yesterday = and pink slip and rego.
need to spend quite a bit of time cleaning = lots of little spots of tar off the drivers side .
It is an fantastic hoot to drive on the back roads to his place.
The shed = working out of.
