General Information

Hey! I'm a new member so I thought I'd post a little about one of my rides.

The pics explain the story, but the description requires explaining...

I originally purchased it in March 2004, as an ex-fleet demo VY S2 executive with 34k on it. During its younger years in my care, I'm afraid it was a quite neglected, with only essential maintenance carried out & little care given to it (170k with only2 major services, brakes, rear shocks and 3 batteries in 13 years). Due to a few minor accidents & criminal damage inflicted on it, it had almost every panel resprayed with a written unlimited lifetime warranty. After a few years the clear was peeling badly, so I called on the warranty.

The repairer honoured the warranty & charged a bit extra to complete a full doors closed respray.

I found a donor car with an L67 & performed the conversion on my driveway with a friend in around 10 hours. photos in part 2!
18 months later, the car was running fine when it was "stolen" (long story) and written off.

My insurance paid out & I purchased the car back. I will continue the story in part 2!
