Well seeing i have nothing better to do on this lovely day i figure id go from start to present on my car.

OK, So i purchased my 86si back on sunday 1st of october 2006.
She had been sitting in this guys front yard for 6months+, he bought it from a old man in sydney, on the drive up th head warped slightly and this toss kept stopping, letting it cool, re filling radiatior, drive, overheat, stop, so on.

So m mummy buys it for me for my birthday, for $400, have to have it tilt trayed home.

Spend $1700 on the engine, (family friend, didnt charge any labor).
I cleaned it right threw, found some rust. fixed some things. 4 new bridgestone G-grid tyres. ($140 each for14s!!!)

Ive had a couple set backs the way of a tree and an idiot, but clint (manbra haha) helped me out with that.

And the steering rack giving out on the way to rego!!

but its all fixed and hopefully getting rego finally net week sometime.

below, engine the day i bought her..
