    Because I'm super slack I didn't reply to this for ages...

    The car sold at auction for $13 500 (to these guys http://www.westsideauto.com.au/) then was onsold from WA around September/October last year for ~$28k. For this to have been profitable the work done on the car would've been on the cheap side.

    The car has since made it's way to Sydney where it has been extensively modified. It has been converted to a manual and had a supercharger installed. The demographic of the workshop that took the car tells me that the car is unlikely to have been picked up by a collector, but that it is probably someone's daily driver now.

    I tried to reach out to the shop that owns it but I never got a response from them so I didn't try again. When it was picked up at auction it did have all its books with it, but I don't know if they went missing after the dealer picked it up. I'm sure I'll see it for sale again in a few years.

    Yeah, I might be a bit of fan of 8s....

    I've found a couple that I *could* get that I really liked and would want to get, but unfortunately other responsibilities have gotten in the way. By keeping track of the cars that I really like I'm hopeful that I might be able to get one I like in the future - at a more opportune moment.

    So this guy is up for sale https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/det...-5970762/?Cr=7

    The owner of it reached out to me about 18 months after I saw it on the instagram account. From what he said he's improved some of the crappy repair work from the dealership and the advert seems to have all the books.

    I doubt he will get his asking price for it. I haven't seen a non-CSi sell for more than $30k in Australia. Some of the other listing have been up for several years.

    What a journey this car has had... A good candidate for one of my films. Too bad it's so far away.

    Looks like Stirling Motorworks has also closed its doors for business. Probably part of the reason for selling this car now.
