Default OneSixty's 1991 L-Series

Here is my first car, it was given to me as the owner did not use it and wants to see it live again.

It had been sitting for over a year and even with over 400,000 km it started first try.
Here are some pictures.

Wow, I've never thought of the passenger front of an L series as a "wine region"
What a great car to bring back to life!

400,000! Awesome that it started first go.


Boy you're gonna get dirty cleaning that up!

The L-Series project will not continue. Cleaning will be finished and then will be sold.

The L-Series was posted on Gumtree for $400 Negotiable. About 25 minuets someone offered $200 and because we really needed it gone the offer was accepted.
"Ill pick it up in the morning" they said. 5:30pm a tow truck arrives to pick it up to take it to a wrecker where the Engine, Wheels and Driveline will be taken out, the body will be crushed and probably turned into a Hyundai or a Coke can.

"All good things must come to an end." -Geoffrey Chaucer
Those parts I mentioned earlier will live on on some other L-Series. Maybe one day i'll get another one.

And so the wheel turns, life goes on.
It's too short to be sad about something like that.
You wouldn't believe the vehilces I've let slip out of my hands over the years, most of them with boxer engines, not many of them Subarus. All of them a hell of a lot more valuable now than when I let them go (except for the 1600 Wagon, that slowly rusted to pieces).

At the end of the day, they're just lumps of metal and stuff that get you from point a to point b.

No Ragrets!

Still we love our cars. I love those older years cockpits.
That bullbar is cool. It could be good project but maybe not this one.

One down the road just like that for sale, with bull bar. No air-con but registered and roadworthy.
They want 2500AU but came down to 1500AU when I offered them 1000AU.
3 weeks later it still hasn't sold. if it hasn't sold by friday morning I'll offer them 800AU (their roadworthy runs out on monday and it costs money to renew and car will need to be rechecked)
I reckon they'll take it unless by some fluke they sell it tomorrow.

Its cool to live where you have space in yard or other place to keep your cars and even buy new ones.

I do have space in my backyard, but this one won't be for me. It'll be for my 'niece' (my wife's cousin's daughter's step sister!!) and her boyfriend while they are here for the next 6 months.
If it survives them, I'll buy it back for my son to drive (if he ever gets his licence!)
