+1
Always be prepared to spend money once you buy it. Anything else is a bonus
+2. I do my own PPI's if something goes wrong its my problem. Be prepared as the boy scouts say.

The boys who won summernats this year were down there and they are from the mini truck/rat rod community. There fabrication skills are beyond amazing.

Looks like they can do anything with metal and do a perfect job. Years ago people were worried about the coach building trade dying out. Fortunately the price of machinery like English wheels, benders and bead rollers have come down massively and there are a lot more people getting into this. Guys like this could replicate a 250 GTO perfectly. Great find.  :thumbsup:


Theyve even got their own Moretti.

ok, fair enough. So who did the PPI on the 355 when he bought that?

It's on my website

Out of interest, does the rustgate buyer still have the car and is he happy with it?

This isn't just a go between. Never mind. You're missing the point.

You sure youre not missing the point? If Carl rcommended a car to you and you want to buy it would you just take his word. If you did and there was a problem would it be the sellers fault, Carls fault, or your own fault?

Errrr. ... bingo

Still seeing a gigantic conflict of interest in this particular case though.

I dont see any... Its up to the buyer what he wants to do. In this case there is no repsonsibility on the go between. Its always up to the buyer. If you have the intelligence to afford a $100k car you should have the intelligence to inspect it yourself or have it inspected independently.

Personally Id only PPI a car that I cant inspect myself. In the end if you want the car and have to money to fix things that could go wrong you just buy it anyway. Everyone is told to keep 10k spare for anything that might go wrong. I bought my two Fcars with only me going over them and theyve been great. Ive bought all of my cars in my life with only me going over them and Ive never bought a lemon. It helped having a stepdad that was an excellent mechanic to teach me as I grew up.  A car can PPI as perfect and still have a major problem the first time you drive it. A PPI only lowers the risk in the end. It doesnt remove it.

We're out doing country driving north of Sydney. So far, so good.

Not that it matters, but interesting just the same, on a 300km stretch with 80/100/110 limits my car consumed less than 7.5l/100km

Amazed!

Must have got a great carby tune for the run.  :thumbsup:

A month after I bought the turbo I had to change the clutch.  I never got a PPI down as it was initially dealer serviced and then later service by an independent who is a friend of mine.  He gave it a verbal 10/10.
Did you feel the clutch would need replacing when you test drove the car?
