The doner car was delivered today, and for a sight unseen eBay purchase turned out surprisingly well. As it still had a decent amount of fuel in it would have been wasteful to not use it, so did some hooning about on the gravel tracks and fields.
Even with the auto it’s a fun little car. Probably not so much on the road, but sliding round the concrete yard and some 45mph on the rough tracks was a laugh.
Runs perfectly, which is all we wanted, but it actually a bit better condition than I thought for a car that’s been laid up outside for the last six years. It’s vinyl wrapped, I guess they didn’t want to paint it after repairing the sills, and it’s nowhere nearly as rusty as I thought it would be.
