vs acclaim

hi i might be selling my vs acclaim and was wondering what sort of price range i might be looking at.

the good

vs acclaim 1996 wagon
350,000 km (country km)
its on gas had that gas test done and past it about a year ago,
new shockers and rubbers fitted a 18 months ago,
trans recon fitted about a year ago,
replaced the steering rack about 8 months old,
all 5 tyers have plenty of tred,
roof lining replaced some time in the last 15months.

the bad

drivers door has big dent in it but have a door to replace it,
oil leak had it fixed but still leaks,
front bumper has 2 slits in it for a bull bar but no bull bar,
the trip meter has gone but got a replacement, spedo and so on work still,
the cover for the trans bar has broken.(the it inside the car it gose around the gear salector)

the ugly
some of the insterment lights are out but there for things like cruse control all the worning lights light up oil and check engine work,
some rust but only sefice (i know i spelt that word rong but u all know what i mean) and not that much if some one got to it now it would come out real easy.

plus comes with some othere spears trans gascket kit and some oil filters and a work shop manule on cd and a book some more rubbers for under the car.

thats about all i can tell you
thanks and a happy new year

There was quite tidy VS series 2 cars going to the wreckers around 2007/08 - they just didn't want them and only paid scrap value - around $150. This pissed off one guy who watched me get $150 for an XD wagon that ran out of rego & space on my lawn... His VS Wagon got the same coin and was in far better shape. The idiot didn't get it - scrap value is just that- the crusher could care less if one is shinier than the next.

If you saw the clean jappers that get scrapped here in NZ- then you would be amazed. Its hard to pick them from cars just parked in the street. I watched a fork come out in the street in Frankton ( Hamilton) and pick up two cars parked there and load them onto a truck to go off to another crushers to be squashed. I had followed one into town that day - nothing wrong with it!

This is why I havent bothered with buying/fixing selling late model cars - they are just worthless here....

Oddly a VS here is still worth around 2-3k... go figure...

Cheers streetneat-Andrew.

Cheap, Fast, Good - pick two.
If its cheap and its fast - it wont be good.
If its good and its cheap - it wont be fast.

In future buddy, give those "micanics" a miss and call a Mechanic. They usually know a bit more about VS commies!

Not everyone in this country has been lucky enough to be educated to your level.

Lets face it, you don't even need to be educated to be a Prime Minister these days.

I know a lot of educated people who spell very well and use wonderfully big important words,and not one of them has an ounce of common sense.

There I go talking about polititions again.

Leave it alone, he asked a question and he has been given the answer, not necessarily the answer he wanted but an answer just the same.

Godsrcrazy, I hope you get rid of your car at a price to suit you. Unfortunately you seem to have spent a considerable amount of cash of late and it is almost impossible to get that back.

Happy New Year to All.

And whilst where on the subject of education. I left school at 14 years and 9 months of age. It was called an exemption, I left early to go to work laying, or learning to lay bricks, to help support a big, poor and growing catholic family. Years later, it was pointed out to me that I was functionally illiterate. So I went back to school, via TAFE, and got year 10. Sorry if my slight sh!t stir upset you precious. But life's what it is. Theres a ton of opportunities in this country. All you have to do is ask and I'm sure you can take advantage of whats on offer.

The punctuation mark wink at the end doesn't make this any less of a backhanded compliment, following such a puerile and smallminded post.

By the way, what happened to your year 10 standards of English literacy? The above post is so poor in grammar, syntax, spelling and punctuation that your teacher should've been sacked.

How come Arsewipe, Hushtech and Kranky 'get' what is going on here with godsrcrazzy, but you post such twaddle?

Ha, yeah, I'll never tire of his sign-in either. So naughty but always so, so funny! (insert Homer Simpson's voice at its most gormless)

Fortunately, we're often sodden but not flooded in Rosewood. Very lucky, all things considered, especially as an HK sedan would look very naff, jacked up to traverse waterways.
It's a bit rough though, when sometimes when you can't avoid going into Ipswich nearby, but then both high creeks/rivers AND roadworks trap you there!

HKing - of Rosewood.

Why are your Roadworks so constant and noticeable.
Here in Vic we tunnel under major intersections for rail, we bridge, we duplicate highways with hardly any bother to motorists yet travel north and nothing but hassle & delays, seems like a kind of rort?
