G'day TUFF..
Nah got it from the trading post, one street away from where they film neighbours.

I was going to get that melb's cheapest cars ea but it had plastic trim falling off everywhere, water pump was pissing out water, had almost 300,000kms and the engine didn't sound very healthy e.t.c is was dodgy and what futher made me sus was that they kept discounting it after advertising it for $4999 with rwc/reg, I believe I got a better buy anyway :)

Just wait until tax return time comes, its a VN beater at the moment but soon I'll be challenging an upper class.. including those terrible gen3 monsters!

lol. I don't think I'm that good at photoshop..
It's genuinely low, hardly scrapes too which is good, getting new shockers though as they're a bit noisey, sure beats 4wd height as it was before. Since I put the new sticker on the back everyone wants a race.. but it blows most away, very impressive for a stock heavy ghia, and it all really depends on precise gear changing.
