Now I am giving away my beloved wagon... (sold)

[Ignore this post, the car is now taken care of]

[I thought I'd start a new post as I am now giving the car away... well almost]

I would hate to throw this car on the scrap heap so I am giving it away. BUT, sorry but there is a but...
you will have to pay for getting the roadworthy and rego (rego has to be payed at some stage though).
My mechanic quoted around $800 to get it up to scratch, so this puts it easily at half of its value.

Great first car or for climber, surfer or anyone who is generally poor!

The car:
Volvo 245L 1980 station wagon, automatic, light blue, very straight for the age with no dings or rust

My wife used to have exactly this model car, but a year older. As a former motorcyclist, I had an irrational predjudice against Volvos, but I was really pleasantly surprised. Our maiden voyage in the car was driving from Brisbane to Melbourne in it. It turned out to be a really comfortable highway cruiser. Smooth engine, great brakes and surprisingly sophisticated for a 25 year old car.
