    Yeah, the search is useless. I think that was part of me getting the Hilux so cheap was that no-one else could find it.

      Yep. I have no idea how Facebook has become the place for car forums and marketplace despite being fucking hopeless at both car forums and marketplace.

          What's the go for stat write-offs in NSW these days? Can they be repaired & registered? I assume they always carry a stigma forever after ...
          Legally, no. I've heard people doing the whole register it interstate for 12 months then transfer to NSW caper but lately that seems to have been targeted big time. Basically if it's on the WOVR it's never going to be registered in NSW again.

              Last two projects I got, eBay and Lloyds auctions.

              Not on FB, but from what I've seen great for used parts to suit a LC or Hilux.

                Cant be re-registered anywhere in australia anymore now they have that national database I don't think. So only good for parts/race car.

                Apparently the reason for this happening a lot more often is because of rebirthing. So the car goes on the stat register and the vin is black listed and car thieves can't use it. They actively want to remove cars out of circulation.

                  Yeah, the NSW police had been talking about that method of making rebirthing in that way impossible, for 20-odd years, in ... 1995-ish I guess it was. They just didn't have a way of sharing the write-off data between states, and the states had been busy arguing over the technicailities for that long.
                  Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

                    They're only stat write offs if they're unsafe to repair, right?

                      Yes, but damaged vehicles considered repairable write offs are now often added to the written off vehicle register too and need an inspection after repair. Note, if you buy a car wovr notified, im pretty sure the only person who can apply to remove it from the register is the person that notified the register of the damage in the first place. So if buying from auction, etc, you can repair the car, get it inspected and re-register it, but it will still have a listing on the register. So anyone that does a ppsr (revs check, etc) on the vehicle will see it flagged as having been a repairable write off and on the register. Ok if you are buying a cheap car for yourself to fix up, not so great if you are trying to resell.

                              If you'd care for a spaceframe project - basically 2C or 2A - a mate did the chassis for one about 10 years back. His potential customer, newly into money from his share of the sale of the family business, didn't bite. Setup to take a Hewland and probably a 4 cylinder.

                                That is why a lot of these cars have been ending up in New Zealand and elsewhere to unsuspecting buyers.
