lads and ladies, unfortunately that time has come. after actively announcing the sale of my car a few months ago, my price has dropped and dropped and today, i took a deposit on my car. it will be gone by next week.

needless to say, of course, you can all come and pay your respects and love and affection and cuddle it for the last time under my ownership on friday night. youse all better bloody come out!!!!! :P

the car is, thankfully, staying in canberra with a new owner (who tells me he's pretty keen to get involved with you grubby fellow 'liners and sau when he takes delivery etc). he's a nice guy called tim. no doubt you'll be seeing him round the traps etc. i'm sure its only a matter of time before he introduces himself to everyone.

so now i'm left in this horrible position of trying to figure out what to do for transport. it needs to be cheap(er) than the line and somewhat cool/unique/fast etc. that rules out anything vaguely australian or american, but please fire your suggestions away! :O

i'm already missing my car and i've got 1 week(ish) left to bond with it and say my goodbyes. :D *sniff*

I hear Diahatsu make some w34pon5!


Hmmm, decent looks and power at an affordable price? well, i'd go with a modified 180 or series 2 S14.

As far as other options go, i'd need to put some thought into it.

It looks like the "parting of ways" will be happening with a few of us over the coming year, but we will all be back with much more powerful and stylish cars in the future.

My next one is 2 years away.

Damn dude, what a nice gtr it was too.. will miss seeing it on the way to school:(

Bigger and better things to come though? Sounds like the new owner will take good care of her, and gee he'd better:@ always loved your gtr.

lol but nick redline's at 9000 tho.... ? so perhaps we should pull the fuse and smoke the rears bounching off the limiter in 2nd. waddya say :P *evil grin* i could never have such little mechanical sympathy tho... so tim if you're reading this, rest assured your baby is gonna be o.k. :P

no this week is gonna be a lot of finding suitable transport and... unfortunately... lots of work... so i'm not gonna have much driving chair time in her before she's someone elses. :blink: *sniff sniff*

    • After a crazy May with GTR Fest, it's time to get back into our routine and meet up for another SAUNSW Sunday Session. And what better way to kick things back off with a new location - Self Raised Snack Shoppe, North Bexley! They have some great coffees, and some even better toasted sandwiches - Perfect for a Sunday breakfast! As always, this is the best place to meet up with the SAUNSW fam for a coffee, bite to eat, and a chat! So what are you waiting for? Block out the calendar, set your alarm in the morning, and come down to hang out with the SAUNSW fam! Date: Sunday 9th June Meet Location: Self Raised Snack Shoppe - Shop 4, 8/20 Sarsfield Cct, Bexley North NSW 2207 (carpark entry via Slade Road) Meet Time: Meet at 8:00am Map: https://tinyurl.com/sausundaysession-selfraised This is NOT a race and we will all be adhering to all road rules. If this is what you want please come to one of our many track days. This is an official SAUNSW event and will be run under a Motorsports Australia permit. One of the things that really sets our club apart is our commitment to being true enthusiasts. When on normal roads we strive to maintain good relations with the authorities as well as the public in general. When attending one of Skylines Australia NSW events please try to: • Be aware of surrounding environment and act accordingly. • Drive courteously on the state’s roads as a true enthusiast should. • Understand how important it is to maintain the good name of SAU:NSW and thus, treat others accordingly. • Any misbehaviour will not be tolerated and you will be asked to leave. Thanks guys and hope to see you there!
    • Me too! They are such a good looking car. Timeless design.
    • Actually, pics of the a pillar brace and how it goes with the dash would be good, and also did you have to go custom door cards to miss the 2nd side intrusion bar?  The rest of it can work as long as I cut the top 100mm off my helmet
