Bought! Tc Xle

Im pretty stoked, i bought a TC xle today. It's only my 2nd car, I wasnt even looking for any particular car, or any car at all. Just a guy from work said he saw a straight corty and thought i might be interested, so i rang up about this one just to go have a look at it, turns out its a totally different car!

Anyway, its a complete grandpa's car, its the guys wife's dad's, which he bought new and its been garaged all its life, up until about 3 months ago when the guy i bought it off got it. Its got a 4.1 pre crossflow 6 and auto, being an XLE its got quad headlights, and its completely original, only having the washer bottle and the washer switch replaced.

The cream paint is pretty damn good for its age, and its got a matching vinyl roof which i'll amourall tomorrow when i give it a really good clean out. The interior is brown, and the seats are in really good nick, with the fronts having seat covers on them. Theres a slight nick in the hood lining right up the back on the c pillar.

Now for the bad news, its got some slight rust in the RHS rear sill, a spot next to the fuel filler, and a fair bit in the boot, but its all fixable, and wont be enough to deprive me of a road worthy. Which it didnt come with, or rego.

So thats my story, pics tomorrow after ive cleaned it!
