Anyone want some parts? I'm moving soon and have some crap left over from my VL that I don't want. I'll do a for sale ad later but it's pickup and if anyone local wants it they can have first crack.
VL-VS K-frame, asking $20 for it.
Front control arms, rear upper control arms, front sway bar, Z bars. Busted power steering rack (get a discount on a replacement maybe) - take it, I just want it gone.
Front bar reo with half a bumper still fitted. Bolts that hold the bar on are corroded and I never got around to getting them all off. Reo itself is in good condition.

5L starter motor, brand new think it's a gear reduction model, never got around to fitting it. I'll sell it for $50, comes with new bolts.

VN V6 auto gearbox. Unknown condition, has a torque converter fitted. Just want it gone.

I heard about that VL, guy I work with drove past it not too long after it happened. He said the driver did a good job of f@$king the car.

So what's everyone been up to? Who still has their VL? I see the odd one around but they aren't as common as a few years back, plus I've moved and don't go into Newy much anymore. I'd love another but it's not going to happen anytime soon. Got a mortgage now and getting married in March so the funding just isn't there.
Sold the VZ and took a lease out on a Cruze 1.6T which is a bit of fun to drive and will do for the time being. Was considering a VF when the lese was up but now there won't be any new ones by that time so I'll either look second hand, go something small and cheap, or look into my 4th VL if there are any decent ones left at good prices. I'll be in my 40's then (fark) so will be mid life crisis time, lol.

You still living down the road from me? You should get a VL, be good to know someone in the area with one.

Have you seen that Blue berlina thats always parked on the street down the road from you?

Yeah I'm still living in the bay, for a few more years yet, want to move back to Newy when the kids finish school. I've seen that Berlina, it looks like it's in pretty good nick. There's a candy pink turbo Calais parked just down the road from it, been there the last week, it looks pretty good too. Saw a VL burnt out just up from the sports fields a few months back, was hoping it wasn't yours. Have seen you since so know it wasn't.
I'd love another VL but with the mortgage, getting married next year and other debts the money just isn't there. Maybe when the Cruze is out of lease I might look again but they will be getting harder to find by then I'd say (another 4 years).
Whether I get another one or not I'll always have a soft spot for them. The SV88 on eBay at he moment looks great, was sitting on 20K last time I checked the bids.

Should get a project VL, you looked like you had a pretty good garage when i was around last.

Yeah that VL, i know roughly who did that. I went down and grabbed the tailshaft and crossmember off it, it was a factory MF5. Someone grabbed the wheels off it before me though lol

No room in that shed with two newish cars, won't be leaving either outside. There's not a lot of room in it either, it's a bit deceiving. Plus I wouldn't be allowed another car just now, can't afford it anyway.

My old shed was the best, double and a half, width and depth. Plenty of room to work there. My parents own the house so I may end up back there some day, a project could happen then, although I think I'd prefer something that's had some work already so I can enjoy it rather than be constantly fixing it. See how I go with things down the track.

Thinking about things, I'd love a VF SS-V or Calais-V, but will see what's available when I'm ready to look. The o0ther option is another VZ Calais, but a 6L instead of the 5.7.

Newy Goin Off

I checked that out on car sales, it's a VYII, has $13k on it. It's a pretty nice car, but more than I intend to spend. If I look at a VZ when the time comes I've narrowed it down to a 6L. Got a few years before I'll be looking.
A VL with an LS motor would be sweet too.
