No regrets there..


yeah but ya gotta regret beeing ripped off buying the bucket of s**t for that price in the 1st place though considering all the problems it had/has that you had to find out about the hard way. Good thing you passed it on before the engine blew up though I guess!

DEVEL for life mate! She's a way better car!

The main regret is that I threw a perfectly smick and warranted BA XR6T into the deal, so I think Aaron got the better deal there ...but, you live and learn.

Getting my DEVEL back has been a huge redemption for me ...NO more stupid decisions ...MY car, done MY way :wink:

I missed her alright, lol.

As for getting her back, the guy who bought her went and bought another EL XR6 with a lower compression build for Turbo 4 weeks later (we were both considering the same car at one point) ...and he kindly dropped me a PM at 2.20 one morning saying that my car may be up for sale again soon. By 2.30 am I had bitten his arm off, done deal.

Call it luck, fate, whatever ...she's back where she belongs.

Yep.

Incidentally, the guy who bought her is today taking delivery at the same yard of 'LOW XR' ...an EB kitted out with the works (5-spd, AU donk, full leather, 19" GTP rims, f**k-lows, BA bulge etc etc) ...and now has to go through a few hassles himself for WA rego.

Without a doubt, buying my DEVEL from VIC is by far the best Eastern States purchase I have made ...it arrived smick as hell, drove beaut, and I had no probs at all with the pits for WA rego ...even the pit inspector couldn't believe how clean and straight she was.

Yes, I love this car!
