Even if it does, there's no guarantee they'll come through. But hey ho, Robsey knows the game.

Cash on collection is a bit iffy for that amount, too.

It doesn't have to have anything to do with PayPal, bank transfer or cheque would do fine. But I don't want to argue about what is basically a personal preference, I just mentioned it in passing.

Well, it seemed adequate to me. :y
When did you last drive it? The Monaro front end was fitted after that Brackley meet ;)

Much improved over the Omega subframe  :y
I keep finding myself browsing the sales sites looking at Holden V8s. Generally the V8s are top money or  slammed or sheds (or all 3 in some cases)

This one looks unmolested https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/cars/holden/commodore/listing/3121880971 for about 6,000

 

 Biggest issue at moment with shipping from the Colonies, is Box prices have gone thro the roof, be about 5-8k now for a box from down under, unless you get it surface transported, (put in a regular cargo boat).

RoRo looks to be pretty reasonable... There should be plenty of capacity now that now cars are built there any more :'(

Looks like there is at least 1 lottery winner out there, provided it's a genuine bid.

TBH, if you wanted that, or a similar setup, that car is probably still one of the cheapest ways of going about it, even if you took the drivetrain off and then threw the omega it was attached to in the bin. Not that I'm suggesting anyone should, it looks a nicely done conversion.  :y

 The cost of shipping has doubled+ Some shippers are blaming the Evergreen/Suez incident, and the Chinese have put shipping costs up,.

A search this morning suggested around a couple of grand for the RoRo. Australia no longer exports vehicles, so there's spare capacity.  ;)
