yep, ive bought a Magna. LOL

well, it only cost me $100 off my mate. plan is to make it so it looks good and drives good so i can take my EL off the road.

its a 1989 TP Magna, 2.6L Carby model.

got it yesterday, they thought the headgasket was gone, i thought otherwise... the water pump was gone too, pinched one off another magna and bolted that up, and it ran fine..... *cough*

took it for a blip on the highway, 10 min later, look out the rear view mirror.... :shock: WTF is all that smoke???!! stopped right away, motor stopped itself..... opened the bonnet up, oil EVERYWHERE and the exhaust manifold was on fire :lol: well this was just f**k, i was 10k from home :lol:

anyway, heres some happy snaps:

its actually not too bad apart from the paint and rust problems, ive already gotten another boot for it, so theres no rust volcanos in it anymore :lol: and i can get all the parts i need cheap.

anyway, got it running again today, although the engine bay fire melted the accelerator cable :lol: .... then i checked what oil was left in the sump, was a nice white colour :) if the headgasket wasnt gone before, it certainly had now :lol:

anyways, il post up more as i do more to it.

What is it about these things - I bought one a few years ago for $100.00 - it lasted about 9 months until it snapped a timing chain and made a loud crunching sound. Went to the scrap merchant after that :)
