wont be so fresh dude the suspension would be up the creeck on it
if you were to put a walky or the likes up on stands since new, then decided to sell it or drive it or whatever, what damage/deterioration would you expect? Like what would you have to replace that gets stuffed up over time just sitting there??

For example, i had a calais turbo which spent alot of time sitting around and i had to change the centre bearing where the tailshaft sits as the mass over time warped it in that single direction, downwards! Had a shocking shudder under acceleration! I also think it had some effect on the diff side as well...

AUS880, i know your' a collector of nice clean vlt's.

A year or so ago there was a genuine vl calais turbo down my way which was like a garaged car one owner, had less than 40,000km's k's genuine and a rare manual model, i think it was ice blue. I wanted it soo bad, it was asking for $17.5k back then and had trouble selling it, saw it advertised again for $14.5k six months later! If only i had the money!
