When got my car for my 18th birthday from my old folks, and I got to say I fell in love with it.
One week after I got the car it needed a service, the fuel consumption was woeful and as a student/shelf packer I couldn't afford it.
Also in the service I needed to fix many oil leaks, which kept coming back.
Wheel alignment was needed every few months and I have to say my wallet was always empty.
The worst problem I ever faced was the electrical. It started with all my lights blowing all the time. Fixed by re-wiring the fuse box.
Odd things would happen all the time like my hazards starting to work when I use the Brake.
The horn constantly on when in reverse and the list went on. The electrical was the most expensive thing to fix casting me nearly $1,200.00AU.
With all of the money that is being pumped into the car I still love it.
It works hard when I wanted it to and it looks so good that I love taking it out for the weekend cruise.
But I admit that the first thing I done when I won $60,000AU in the Lotteries 4 months ago was give it a shower of new goods.
New VT SS 5.0Lt Engine
New twin 2.5" Exhaust System
Body work, (Rust Removal, Rust Seal and new Paint Job)
Pumping Stereo System
Midly Worked the engine
17" Low profile Mags
Neon body kit.
I now estimate the engine pumps 250kw at the wheels and the looks I receive while I'm out cruising with my friends are all good!!
Hopefully in about 2 weeks I will be taking it down to the speedway to see what times she pumps now :)
Anyway in my mind I would think I would have the best looking best performing VH SL/E in Adelaide. (It better be with $40,000AU in it and over 250hrs of work from me alone without all my friends and family helping me.)
