mrhzv8s new hz...a 6...but not for long.....hehe :)

well....i just couldnt help myself...after much shame and remorse about buying a tarago for the new work hack ( i only bought it cos it had a cd player!!! really!!! hehe) i decided the 5 lt hz needed a date with the panel shop....until i bought yesterdays paper...........there in the for sale section was a hz titled "GOLDEN OLDIE" 1 owner,11 months rego,6 cyl,manual, 162,000kms...$1800 0.n.0...i thought to myself "is this the one?".....the one i had been looking for???..my best laid plans went out the window and I had an instant rush of excitment as i ran into mrshzv8 and told her to get outta bed...and that maybe i had found "the one"...after a bit of grovelling and many "yes babys, i have heard all this before"...we rang and a very elderly gentleman answered the phone...(so far, so good) we made the short trip and were greeted by a very, very immaculate hz wagon...a couple of minor cosmetic issues and the usual rusty tailgate..(which mrshzv8 kindly pointed out before even opening it...i have taught her well!!)...the further inspection revealed a 99.9% rust free hz, with showroom carpet,door trims, spotless kick panels and immaculate seats....mrshzv8 and i spoke very briefly at this point and knew that these kinds of opportunitys come up not so often, i picked on the tailgate as the first line of attack advising the elderly couples son that it needed a new one straight away and that they are not cheap to buy( we have a genuine rust free tailgate on our hz now!!! haha) i made him an offer of $1100 and he said he would be happy to take $1300, taking into account the rusty tailgate and the cost of a replacement, undeterred i offered $1200..........he accepted!!!!!!!! WOO-HOO....i will post some piccys of her when i pick her up early next week.....woo-hoo!!! :) :P :)
