    Living in the 70's

    Hey guys.

    Figured I'd pop back in and update my stuff.

    The R32 while great was expensive and after my girlfriend and I broke up after 6.5 years I decided I needed to simplify my life.

    Enter the new pimp mobile, Cheap as hell to run but just as fun to beat on.

    Its got the standard A12, rebuilt and only just run in (1000 or so kms) rebuilt 4 speed, new clutch, new radiator, new springs n shocks, complete bare metal respray now metallic Ford xr6 purple, complete re trim, other bits and pieces like new indicators etc etc.

    Sucks about the GTR, man but congrats on the new wheels!
    I'm surprised that there's no SR20 in the engine bay.

    Has it met clutch's Purple People Eater yet?

    Yeah, the GTR was boss and I sure do miss being able to flatten anything short of something seriously special on the road.

    But I'm just trying to simplify my life right now and this suits that perfectly.

    SR20's don't belong in such a clean example, if it was a random shitter i'd be into that - but period correct is the best.
