VY series II Berlina
Hey all

I have an old commodore VL Berlina Station Wagon. It is in a pretty tatty state sunburnt etc. but the body is straight, a little rust around the windscreen but appears to be surface only, What I can see anyway.

The question is what can I do with it?

I tried to ring a tow away company and they said $150.00 tops
That seems a shame for this car. Its looked after my family for many years.

Should I go with the tow away offer?
Should I wreck it?
Is it worth putting an ad in the Trading Post?

What to do?

Any ideas would be appreciated

DC

P.S. I am in Adelaide.

mate if its running fine and just a little ruff
put it in the paper for 1000ono
then if someone knocks you back to 500+ its stilll better then the tow price
