Pointless post really

Well, just received some info from a fellow member, that my old beast has been written off. Poor thing had a hard life, and am very surprised it lasted so long. She was my pride and joy, when i was a revhead. Had some good times in her thats for sure.

Apparently, the 3rd owner since i sold it, was under the influence, gave it a bootful and went sideways into a powerpole. Sure as hell glad it wasn't me. I had my chances thats for sure. But there is a place and time for that sort of thing, unfortunately, it was every second corner when i had it. Sure as hell glad i got rid of it and never injured or killed anybody. Definitely see the errors of my ways now, but just goes to show how invincible you think you are when your young. Plus the complete disregard for others.

But the thing is, the car went through 3 young fellas, early 20's, and the fella to crash it was in his early 30's. I can actually remember taking the same fella in it when i owned it, for a joyride. AND he was drunk then. Karma, thats what ya get when ya spill beer in my car i guess. She got him back for that eventually.

In no way am i upset or any of that garbage though, just thankful it never happened to me. She had enough work done to her to make things fun thats for sure. But she cost me the earth to fix all the time. Especially when power steering fluid hit the extractors and lit up. That was an experience.

For me and the fellow EO member, we will always remember the 1st night i brought it. Fun probably doesnt describe it, awesomes probably better.

Just hope now, that the EO fella who brought my trayback dont do the same, as that tired old 1HZ definitely packs a punch. HAHAHAHA

Hey Boss,
Nothing is pointless when it concerns yourself. Thanks for sharing the story. We all like to hear things about the things we sold or got rid of.
Love the bush

It seems that the old saying "To be old and wise one must first be young and stupid" has some truth to it.....
