Memories...

Well, the EA goes tomorrow.

After 2 years of blood, sweat and tears, I've sold out and traded her for something with a bigger donk.

2 years, over 60,000k's, thousands of dollars spent.

and the good times. Just a few that come to mind now -

- Rope towing a Donut King V8 BRUTE down the M1 after a blown diff...

- Being the DK Lamborghini support vehicle, including jump starting it in the middle of the Story Bridge in peak hour on a Friday afternoon (Rollin might remember this - he was one of the million cars held up by it...)

- Loading the boot with bush rocks until the wheel arches scraped the tyres... (don;t try this at home)

- Being the slowest car at every EA Club Cruise i attended (I value my licence!)

- Late night runs to Sydney, trying to beat my average time...

- Coming off a *spirited* run down the Blackall range between Mapleton and Kenilworth and finding that the brakes had faded just a little more than i expected... ended up rallying completely sideays up a dark dirt track...

and plenty more that i can't remember (or can't mention on a public forum)...

Pointless post, but here's to EA's!!! And if anyone tells you they are unreliable - I put mine through 60+ k's in 2 years and spent... $1000 on repairs (power steering, water pump, misc) and about another grand on improvements... all from a $2000, 200,000k car... and I got what i feel is a decent trade on it at the end - $3000 off the price of the ZH.

Hopefully the ZH Marquis replacement will be as good.

cheers

Nick

Re: Memories...

Congrats on the new car - I know it's hard to let go of all those memories (too hard in my case ) but the ZH is certainly built Ford tough.

I do recall pictures of the Lambo incident a while back, but never realised that was your car. Wish I still had them...

Anyway, best of luck with it.

Re: Memories...

thanks guys...

the new one surely is built Ford tough - picked it up on Friday and drove straight to the North coast... ran beautifully (got around 20k's/l for the whole trip... i'm ok with that)...

also had my first ever traffic light drag (yes, i'm a bad bad man) against a VN SS, and oddly enough i was all over him until 80kph, when i backed off and he fanged past and gave me the finger (classy!)...

pics of new beast - http://carpoint.ninemsn.com.au/Marke...asp?ID=2297550

yes, jump starting the Lambo was piss funny the first time, pretty good the second time, but by the end of the second week it was starting to get on our nerves...

I've still got the pics, would be great if someone could host them (or tell me how to get them online)
