So..I bought a new car on Monday.
Well, not new new, but new for me.
It's an '86 Nissan Skyline, and for $1800 it's one kick ass car.
It is a 6 cylinder 3.0 litre and it has 20 times more guts than my old little '81 Corolla.
Now I can actually get up Mugga Mugga Hill at 80 kph!
This is what it looks like, sort of, but mine is a wagon:
I got the lady down 200 bucks as well from her advertised 2 grand price. Pity today it is getting the brake calipers fixed at a cost of $218! But I still figure it's a good buy with still 7 months of rego on it.
The lady who sold it to me was quite sad to see it go. She was the only owner of it, so has had it for 18 years. She said she's always had it serviced, and you can tell. The engine is quiet and smooth and seems to have been looked after.
Here's hoping it works out well, and doesn't die in the arse on it's way out to Symonston one day....
