Help To Inspect A Car In Sydney?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

it looks like my daily driver (R31 Skyline) is getting written off soon by the insurance company after meeting at speed with a tree branch.

Im looking at buying another R31 approx 40km west of Sydney cbd and driving it back home to Adelaide.

I was wondering if anyone could possibly help by checking the car out in person and give me an honest description of it. Maybe send me a few hi-res pictures. Its at a car yard so it should be easy to view during business hours.

Its a big call for me to take a day off work, get a plane flight and then catch a taxi to only find out its had major repairs at some point etc.

If I do fly over it will be next friday (NOV-9) to pick it up.

I dont need a super detailed report with how much wear is left on the rotors etc, just to check that its what they advertise it as and that it has no hidden issues or repairs.

Pm me for more details if you live close by there and could possibly help.

Thanks,

Nick.

Hi mark.

No need for help now. I picked up a car (a vx calais, but dont tell anyone on here :whistling: ) on November 9th and drove it back to Adelaide.

I appreciate its a big call for most people to look at a car for someone else so i didnt expect to get any responses but it was worth a shot at the time.

Thats the second time ive bought a car from Sydney now.

There seems to be a bigger variety on offer over there and is worth the plane flight and fuel etc.

First car i bought quite a while back now was a 1600 wagon. That was a memorable drive home.

It was nice to fly over and do the road trip back but I noticed there was alot more animals and road kill this time round so i hid behind trucks when it got dark for fear of denting the new purchase. I saw rabbits, foxes, a family of goats, a massive sheep and lots of dead kangaroos etc.

I cant imagine doing the return trip in a 1600 thesedays like you guys did when i met you at Victor Harbour here in SA earlier in the year.

I must be getting old(er)? Or maybe i just need cruise control, air con and gps in my 1600??? Theres a thought...

The best thing about our trip to SA & back, was the lunatics we went with :woot: .. top bunch of blokes...

Im keen to do it again in 2 years, as the next road trip will be to Phillip Island , for the NDN13, in easter.

Anyway, if you get the urge again.. Give me a PM.. Always keen to help another dato lover out!!
