Why do i like cars?

it seems every car i have owned (2) has been cursed!!

my first car, a mk2 esky, broke every 3 weeks, not cause its a bad car but cause i floged it, first it was the gearbox, then the exhaust, then the radiator, then the diff, then the motor, then the gerbox again. hmmm.... i love that car.

my next car whcih i have just got is a XE falc.
it needed some work to get rego, so ive spent 4 -5 weeks fixin her up, carby , extractors had hole in em, dash lights buggered.
i finally got it ready & went for a blue slip last week & a few small things like seat belt & key not working proply, so i fixed them & decided to take the car back 7 finish my blue slip today, NOW the bloody thing wont start & i cant get it down there......

theres no end to the drama but i still find myself wanting to own a done up car etc.

its funny that!!

i bet u do pay much for em either.

i have had my string of cheap run abouts, until recently the most id ever spend on purchasing a car was $1,500!

Mate cars like you have bought will generally anyways need something fixed on them specially when you need to get a blue slip due mainly to the age of the vechicles.

I remember i had a time & a half getting an ex cab XF on gas blue slipped, they picked on everything.

But once registed i had no probs. Stick to it mate once rego'd the XE should be close to trouble free.

Scope out my '80 XD Fairmont Ghia 351 V8 in the gallery!
