    I'd rather store it on the farm (sorry Mum...) than see it wrecked.

    It's been very faithful and very good to me - it deserves better.

    You can have it in Melbs for the cost of some fuel and an airfare back. I'll even swing past the farm and pile in all in the spare parts and drop it off to you. You gotta promise to give it some love and use it though!

    See the for sale thread

    Happy to transport it, I get a visit to the olds and some mates out of that deal!

    Windscreen in Melbourne is $280. Good s/h tyres can be had from that place near dandenong for $30 a throw fitted.

    Ken at Carravelle won't charge much for brake wheel cylinders.

    Water pump I'd leave til it leaks.

    AC even still works (a bit). JoBo might help top it up with hychill again if you're nice to him.

    The trans oil leak is the plug where the solenoid valve body loom comes out - drop the sump, swap the loom in from one of the spare transmissions you have to collect from Mt Waverley and it will go through a roadworthy.

    The Hume on its way back the Canberra - the pretty sunset betrays the monotony that awaits...

    Early morning coffee shop, 6am just off the ferry.

    On the ferry obviously. Pug strapped to the boot

    80kms down a gravel road at Fake Pedder. Damn shame to see it knowing what was there before

    A Renault in its natural habitat - lots of winding roads

    Lake Gordon - that's about as far as that road went. Don't think the R21 floats...

    A local up at Mount Field National Park - requesting titbits. Forcefully.

    Pwetty rainbow coming down the Southern Outlet into Hobart. Loved that daily drive, seeing Hobart and the River all laid out below - always looked different. Geez I miss Hobart....

    Waiting to board the ferry on the way down - note correct coolant temperature even after an hour of queuing

    Fully sik Kenwood stereo, and theres even a stacker in the boot. Yes I listen to Radio National...

    Day before the ferry to Tasmania - the gearbox transplant that probably wasn't needed after all.

    Does cruise well though

    Leaving Canberra - how much crap can you get in an R21 you ask? Lots.

    Craig and Delia - both in their 50s and they kick my arse on the mountain bikes.... They dont laugh at me or old Renault, I dont hassle them for driving a diesel - it all works

    The engine just before it was pulled from Kirsty's last R21. Reasons for the cars dismantling should be obvious....

    What the inside looks with no dash.

    Reason for it having no dash - to get to the bloody vent flap motor and replace its with an R25 vacuum pod that actually works.

    That was sorta all backwards in chronology...

    I'll miss it, but can't keep it.

    No wrecking allowed! Good home only.

    Awesome - They've finished the roadworks!

    The first pic, they had traffic down to 40kph for around 6 months during odd hours!

    I'll bump this every now and then - no rush.

    I'll be taking on the Xsara shortly after Kirsty takes the Megane on - I might yet still need the R21 every now and then if I cant sort out the numerous and ongoing Xsara "issues"...

    Plus the R21 will be eligible for club rego in 3 years I think, so can just stash it til then.

    Still needed it then!

    It will be going home to the farm in central Victoria once the Xsara is back from Hobart next week and sorted out. Not keen to keep paying rego in it if im not using it, so will try take it back to Victoria in a month or so.

    All it's collection of bits will packed into it and then its a package you can drive back on a permit one day I'm sure it would like to go back, I know I would!

    Car currently in Canberra, but the parts are in Melbourne and central Victoria...

    You will need the parts, and I kinda need the parts gone - part of the deal. Its two transmissions in Melbourne, and about 6 of those big black plastic crates from Bunnings filled with heavy things in central Vic.

    This may have relativly low kms on it, but its not a "low kms" car in that it means it will be trouble free.

    It has niggles, and is for the renault tragic tinkering type - a great second car runabout, could be a primary car but not really good enough for that these days.

    If you rely on a mechanic to maintain your cars, forget it.

    I saw the car and it still looks very good. Simple to work on but as Haakon said, DIY or a reliable backyarder perhaps?

    Will be unregistered in 14 days. Found a defect notice on the windscreen when I came back to it (am a bit crook, so drove to work to stay warm) for the cracked windscreen.

    Obviously not paying ripoff ACT prices for a windscreen, then pay the $60 "inspection fee" (ie the fine by default) where they can issue further defect notices (ie tyres). So still get a fine in effect as I'll have to get a permit to run it back to central Victoria.

    I shit you not, Canberra "transport authority" wanders around carparks looking for defect notices to issue. As if I needed yet another reason to dislike about this shithole... [email protected]

    Well one has to ask were they correct? Was the screen "unroadworthy" ?

    If it is cracked, then you have to cop it sweet just like Dino.

    From the Mikado....

    My object all sublime
    I shall achieve in time—
    To let the punishment fit the crime—
    The punishment fit the crime;
    And make each prisoner pent
    Unwillingly represent
    A source of innocent merriment,
    Of innocent merriment!

    Hope you feel better...

    Oh yeah, its cracked alright

    Been like this for nearly six months, and am bringing the Xsara back here next week, so couldn't have been better timed really.

    I do however find the notion of the locals wandering around carparks of unattended cars looking for defects somehow very distasteful and unsporting.

    It's amazing how the Canberra winter can accelerate the cracks. I picked up a stone from on coming truck when driving to Canberra from Batesman Bay years ago, due to roadworks. It was a small crack and overnight it crew to similar size to yours.

    Yet another reason for your dislike of the place?
