    I JUST SOLD THE CAR!!!! :eek3: :eek3: :eek3:

    MR 20V is gone! :sadwavey:

    the new owner drove it away yesterday......

    paid me $13,000 like i was asking too, no haggling or anything!

    Im still in such a state of shock at the moment, i dont know what to feel... after 4 years of owning it, countless hours of work & nearly $35k, its gone.

    gone.

    ...

    holy shit. :eek3:

    ...

    gone.



    it couldnt have come at a better time though, just as i'm buying my first home & getting married early next year. *tries to stay positive*
    its only a car, but damn it if i'm not emotional right now...

    *sigh* :hs:

    just thought i'd share my self pity with you all. :o

    Sorry to hear that man. Hopefully the new owner will take as good of care of it as you did.

    my latest project is furnishing my new house... :big grin: found a 109cm plasma screen TV last night for $3000aud. (cheap) :bigthumb:

    i did just buy a new car the other day though, its a 1980 TE-72 Toyota Corolla T-18 SE.

    - Its metallic poo-brown, with a fire breathing 3T-C & some awesome high performance retreads on some shiny steel rims.
    The luxury tan velour interior features some classy brown & white central racing stripes, reminiscent of grandmas couch from back in the '70s... Oh, and a genuine woodgrain dash fascia from a plastic walnut tree (scientific name Endiandra Plasticus. )

    its such a fucking shitbox!!! - ilove it!!! :rofl:

    im going to roll around in that until about April of next year, when me & the Mrs will be buying an FD. cant wait! :x:


    Thanks a lot man. :)

    it was pouring down rain last night, so i felt obligated to take the new TE72 out for it inaugral 'test run'...

    got nicely sideways, in a single-wheeling, cruise-liner-handling sort of way! :big grin:

    this car is going to be so much fun, belting the shit out of it. :evil:
