    Pretty much this. Shocking what 80's bog repairs can hide underneath the paint in these things.

    Cool wagon though!

    Well that answers that question.... was short lived,

    Gave it a quick wash today, looks good wet....




    Took it for a bit of a cruise...






    And got offered the right money for it, done deal, car now sits at home like this awaiting the weekend and it's new owner, I kind of liked it, really surprised how many people want the fucking thing, must have been to cheap.

    Off to a good cause, they want it for a variety bash car.

    I think you did the right thing flipping it for profit.

    Now blow the money on another car. Its the sensible thing to do.

    This popped up in my Gumtree feed. "one owner never been modified rust in usual places" sounds right up your alley and you can reinvest what you spent on the Kinga into this beast.

    Yes, but comes out a bit darker in the pics, the paint is Jade Green, still original inside the doors, actually not a bad colour, I have only ever seen it on a couple of Premiers, even to find these pics, I'm sure the first pic is actually a mates brother's car.

    I bought a green Kingswood once. Made it black. All the problems instantly vanished.

    This thing officially left on Saturday, shame, It was kinda cool to drive around in

    Apparently it will be painted red, raised an inch for the variety bash thingy and they have a 253 and 4 speed that's going into it

    The pain with owning cars a short time is you never have them long enough to be burdened with the real issues, the ones that stop them from being "one of the best cars you ever had"

    Endeavour is very different to Variety. Variety Bash is in no way competitive, so most aren't going at it. Most of the failures that happen in VB are due to poor car prep, cars that are already shitboxes and possibly silly mistakes.

    There's typically very few fucks given about the car too though, so doing 100km/h down rutted roads and bouncing them off compacted dirt mounds is common. The car's don't have a long life as a VB-er and come out the otherside.

    There's also quite a few immaculate cars that have done 20+ bashes. As mentioned, it's car prep and sympathy. Quite easy to do a bash without fucking a car, and most of the people who have done many bashes with the one nice looking car are actually car guys. A lot of the people who do the bash aren't, they're the ones who are having breakages and driving pieces of shit. They do no prep and the car hasn't been driven/serviced since the last bash.

    To be honest I'm not a fan of it, The thought of them being thrashed does my head in, hopefully they'll look after it, although after hearing the "well just put some mesh in the rust bits" made me almost pull the sale,

    I said it needs to be done properly, hopefully their agreement after discussion of future value etc wasn't just because that's what they knew I wanted to hear, the conversation after it was a done deal doesn't make me hold much hope for it though unfortunately, end of the day, it's their car, and regardless of it being locked up in a shed or driven into the ground, it's not in anyone else's lives, on the plus side,

    New owner does own a genuine 350 GTS 4 door HQ, plus a couple of other cool cars, and his son has a couple neat ones as well, so might be ok.

    Selling this did me no favors, I kinda bought it so I had a car with seats for school holidays, kids, plural,

    Did this today for replacement, seems cool, has seats, apparently was some government workers car, had a personal driver and when he retired they gave him the car, kicked the bucket, his wife sold it to a guy a couple years ago that did nothing with it bar reco the radiator, seems pretty solid, spot of rust he dodged up at the back under the boot seal, aircon belt is off, I assume that's fucked, rest not to bad, paints a bit shit, tops of door trims are split on passenger doors, imagine drivers may have been done, this is the gumtree add pics, its a pretty genuine thing, MS112, 1983, 5ME, so at least it has some sort of fuel efficiency.... hahahaha, it'll be fine, cant be worse than dailying an E85 1JZ Van,

    It comes home tomorrow,

    I like that you justified buying yet another car "because school holidays and the kids need seats".

    Picked this up this morning, A mate gave me a lift over,




    Found hidden key in said garden ornament, put the key in, turned it, click..click...click, cunt

    Went to servo and bought overpriced jumper leads and drove back, pushed it into the middle of the street and fired it up..
    Blew a shit ton of grey smoke, fuck me, here we go, been sitting for a while though,



    Got it to the closest servo to put fuel in, gauge was just under empty line, jump started it again, then put some air in the tyres, 16psi wasn't awesome,






    Drove pretty well, gave it a boot-full, blew out various colours of the rainbow, then all cleared up, gearbox is a bit crook though, fluid doesn't look overly old, shifts hard into gears, have to get up it a bit to make it bang into top, meh, fuck it, it goes, interior is pretty tidy, most of the shit works, drivers window works but at one stage wound down on quite an angle, pushed it back and was fine ha ha, sigh...

    Anyway, it's home, alternator seems to work, will get said children to wash/clean it,
