105 thousand Kms you mean? if so that is one damn lazy driver. but why not do it up...if not just keep the shell as immaculate as possible and then chuck a better engine in there for the future ;)

You very rarely ever get your money back on a car.
Once you start working on it, if you keep going, eventually you love the damn thing, you disregard all the problems it gives you, and you never want to sell it anyway.

Build something you're going to love for years.
Every time you start to get irritated with the car, make it faster.

It's worked for me anyway :)

Bad bits:
one slight bit of surface rust, battery area in a bad way. brakes don't work to well, 330CCA battery (but reasonably new) looks like its been broken into as the lock covers are missing, roof sagging. Missing HighBeam bulbs. Tyres stuffed but has two LTD rims on the front.

Good bits:
Costs $400, looks like a new radiator, reco motor and box apparently, underneath looks like its just had suspension done up. starts and runs OK. No diff noise or leaks.


I have a stainless nudge bar that can help make up for the lack of brakes LOL

Seriously though ive got heaps of spare EA/EB s**t laying around if you need anything just pm me.
