...because thats when Sims Metals are going to pick up my 3 door ambulance (body). I um'd and are'd about telling OH about this but I thought that if anyone cared they'd have a beer for it (and maybe even me). I tell ya when I first saw this van when I was 17 I HAD TO HAVE IT! I got it for $200 because it was rusty as feck. Now 12 years on its a little bit more rusty (there are no serviceable panels left on it). After towing it over 1500km to verious farms and yards around WA for somewhere to store it I have decided that enough is enough. I called sims and they'll be around to pick it up.

I know you've tried Curly, but maybe it's time.
Well I'll have a homebrew for you...and one for the van...

Can I put the pic in my shed...? It's the least I can do.

I still reckon you should cut that door out...

Don't mention you're putting the compliance plates on something else, it's illegal...

But whenever someone mentions compliance plates and different cars, the oldholden police pounce...

Actually, to be honest, I'm quite sure it is illegal.

Holdenpaedia, they're the brakes Mate.

I had a beer or two or three or four, and have only just recovered. Do I have to go through that again tomorrow?
