Oh geez, a few on here have numerous other classic cars and last weekend I bought a bit of hybrid one.
Its a 1961 Austin Lancer (looks near identical to a Morris Major Elite) which are a Pommy derived thing built here in the great land Down-Under. They are only little, but have fins and chrome.... so pretty cool.
I got it off a 70 year old guy and his wife for a song, as it does require a paint job and few odds and ends sorted, as it hasn't seen the blacktop in 14 years.
The crazy bastard has fitted the car with a 2 litre, single OHC twin plug engine, 5 speed manual, a Ford Cortina diff, Fiat disc brakes and the list goes on. Its got massive sway bars, lowered and was setup for hill climbs.
The best bit, is its been Mod Plated by our Transport authority, so rego will be a doodle. I can't wait to get this thing on the road. This thing be slicker than a Teflon coated turd off a chrome plated shovel.
At least now, I have something else to play with..... apart from myself.
I always wondered why people would put a sticker on the bumper... Now I know.
So what did you sing to force the elders to part with the car? Theme from Godfather?
Geez mate, that's a bit harsh...... :-)
A few weeks back, I needed to remove the two front seats. Stuffed my big friggin melon under to see what was involved and there was a jar under the seat. Long story short, it looked like it was full of washers or something.
Got it out, 1 x $100 note, 2 x $50 notes and 3x $20 and four dollars in loose change.
Now, I was very, very tempted to keep it, but I knew when I bought the car, they didn't have much money and I didn't give them anymore than I had too either.
So, being a good little boy, I rang them, got their account details and returned the $264.00
They were very grateful...... but i'm still waiting to see any good karma yet, days later I was down with the flu and i'm still struggling...... good karma my arse.
Geez, you're in good form this week Anders.... ha ha ha ha ha
Well once in a while the coin drops all the way. :-)
