    Default Oh, what have I done....

    I just bought the white Fuego that was on Ebay in Canberra.

    Hopefully it's as advertised. Should look good with a respray and some TLC (and lowering about a foot...)

    Anyone know of a company that will ship cars that aren't running?

    Nice one!!

    That fuego looks original, at least from the perspective of having correct door strips that are the right length and shape.
    From my computer screen the paint looks great. Are you going to change its colour???

    I might have some spare wheels in that configuration ex son's car, but I guess you will be changing them too - looks good, is that one of Bazzamacs ex fuegos? Maybe someone coming down to the French Car Day this Sunday could trailer - short notice but!

    No. Same color. I've been hunting for a good white one so if it's as good as it looks, It should be an easy resto.

    I think those stripes were all aftermarket or a dealer fit option.

    I like the wheels - nice and easy to keep clean.

    A young fellow in the RCCA bought my white Fuego and has made the most magnificent job on the respray with a sort of snowflake colour.

    Yeah, there's a few pearl/metallic whites about. Mazda had a nice one on the 6. I think I'll keep it simple and go original.

    Just saw this post Ken. without seeing further identification, I don't think it is one of my ex Fuegos. Both of the white ones I had went eventually to the wreckers one by me after an unfortunate accident and the other after I had sold it.
