Goodbye Mud-mobile

Recommended Posts

It's official.

My Skyline, formerly known as MUD76, is now in new hands.

She served me well for 5 long years, but times change and it was no longer practical for me.

I have had my heart set on a V35 for ages but I will hold off on a car for a while (will use money to invest in a couple of short term projects).

I will continue to MOD and be a as active as I can with SAU QLD in the short term.

In the mid - long term I will look to pass on the Mod battern, so I'll keep my eye out and make a recomendation to admins when I've had enough and decide to leave.

(I told myself I wouldn't cry)

Cheers

M

Yeah the market sucks atm...

But thats only cause the AUD is very strong against the Greenback atm...

Give it a few months and the price of imports will rise again a solid 15%...

I think ill hang onto mine until the US dollar re-gains strength...

What a load of shit!

How does the US dollar effect the price of cars that are already in the country?

Actually how does it effect the price of cars coming from Japan either?

If anything, a strong $AU makes things cheaper from overseas.

Back on topic :pirate:

I felt I got a reasonable price and a pretty quick sale.

i think the worse is yet to come.

the aud at one stage was traded at 1:1 to USD..

i think this will happen again due to the recent economy boom australia is having.....

so yeah good news is the imports will be cheaper, not just cars, anything....

Stronger $AU means cheaper importation which means cheaper prices on resale from both the cars coming in and the cars already here.

However, the primary problem with import resale is basic supply and demand. There were so many skylines and like vehicles imported pre the 89 ruling that they are now effectively a dime a dozen and nothing will change that. The price will level, but not rise and once they get older it will just continue to fall. Not to mention with the new P plate laws, the price will continue to fall as the next generation of teenagers realise they can't buy a skyline which, like it or not, accounts for much or at least some of the skyline market. Unfortunately for sellers the days of 20k r33's are well and truly gone, good for buyers though.

    • The old "Gentleman's agreement".  They all kept publishing that number to avoid government intervention. They all kept pushing over it to be quicker than the other guy.   It's why I'll say it's smart the Gen4 Supra was more suited/targetted to taking on freeway runs, than taking on the GTR directly. Nissan and Yoda rivalry slightly more apart receiving a little less criticism compared to the Holden Vs Ford in the years gone by with the likes of the GTHO etc.
    • The GTT's Neo actually did produce ~206kW at the flywheel. The 34GTR's 26 really did not produce 206kW at the flywheel. By the time the 34 came around the 26 was likely up around 230-240 kW, and probably could have been more. The Japanese manufacturer's had an agreement to not sell any cars that made more than 206kW (actuall, their agreement was expressed in the stupid non-metric German ps units which is essentially horsepower, and the numerical value in the agreement was 280ps). So Evos, Supras, GTRs, 3000GTs, and so on, all had official 206kW power outputs published, and all made variously larger numbers than that. Even the R32 GTR made a decent margin over the official number, all the way back in 1989. As you'd bloody well hope for a TT 2.6l 24v engine running ~12psi of boost.
    • See, Euro trash. Ha ha ha. And I have to say, you nearly nailed the description of yourself. But you can't be elitist if you can't look down on people. Or see what's on top of the Fridge.
    • Manufacturers quote power at the engine, we quote power at the wheels, which will always be lower due to drivetrain losses.
