Hey guys,

im thinking of buying my old ZH fairy back! .. I originally bought it for $1000, put 12months rego on it, ran it down untill it had 3months on it, sold it for $1500, then the guy that had it sold it for $1200, now the owner that has it now has cut and plated all the rust, put 12months rego on it, straightend it all out, cleanted it up and is asking 2k, all it needs is a paint job.. rekon i should buy it back? :P

Ive seen a "big cruiser" tubbed and doing 10's.

They are definatly with out a doubt my favorite car of that era apart from landau's which are fairlane coupes :)

Ive got a rooted piece of s**t one atm, gonna crush it one day but my mates got a mint one with a manual behind it and she goes nice as.
I love those tanks, however i prefer the ZG (i think) tail lights. U know the ones that go right accross the back.

You buy the car off him. He goes out and puts a deposit on a nice bike. Youve got your old girl back in better condition then what you left it. Everyones happy. What are you waiting for rob go and give him a ring asap. Don't f@rt around cause you never know it might get snapped up quick smart.
