Ej special

We’ll get you where you need to go. In about a week.

There were slim pickings in my favourite car yard today. Not in terms of numbers, no there were over one hundred cars to peruse on the lot. More in terms of things I hadn’t seen in the metal yet and cars that would have well and truly picqued my interests.

Yes there was the glorious Scarab Tribute parked in the corner. There was a Citreon SM attempting to become one with a bush. There was also a flawless looking 70’s Celeica flashing away in the sun. But the thing that captured my attention in the midst of the glinting lavish metal?

The greatest barn find in the world of…Taxis.

$490 worth of sheer lunacy.

The last time I helped host the All Holden Day at the Bendigo Showgrounds, I took quite a few pictures of every car I came close to (you can see a lot of them right here. ) This time around due to my announcing commitments I only had the time to happy snap a couple of them. But what fun cars they turned out to be…

All that glitters is not just an Apple smartwatch

We read today that the new Apple Smartwatch will be released here in Australia sometime next month and for those who have more money than sense, there’s an 18 karat gold version that will set you back $24,000 AUS.

Yes 24K to blow on something that talks to your iPhone. I too can do this and I’m nowhere near that expensive.

However if you do prefer to put 24K towards filling your backyard with automotive gold (as in paint color..), allow us to unearth some possible purchases a little bit bigger than something you strap to your wrist..

You can list your Barina locally in classifieds and even include a nice little side on picture to really get your phone ringing. You can put your Barina on the internet with lots of room for details so you can answer as many questions as possible. You could stick your Barina on the side of the road with a For Sale sign and a phone number, hoping for nibbles.

I will buy your car. I work in the Navy and can only use Paypal…

My brother in law is a cowboy hat wearing, boot scooting, ‘if it ain’t a ute, I want nothing to do with it’ type of guy who loves his Bundy, shindigs round a bonfire, sliding sideways through the dirt in a Datto and anything at all to do with Lee Kernaghan. He loves the land, carby fed blocks and steak and chips. So when it comes to confusing technical questions, he usually refers them to me.

And this time around my advice was actually 100% accurate for a change, saved him from getting ripped off in a dodgy online scam and has hopefully educated him a little more about sharks on the Internet.

I wonder what beer he’s going to bring around as a thank you for this?…
