So the Ignis was sold to a lovely couple in Waikanae, who have just sold two turbo Skylines (R32 and R34) and are building an RB30DET power Datsun Ute drag car.... Guess the car wasn't as nana spec as first thought.....
The hunt was on to find a new ride......
I already had a few ideas in mind for what I wanted the next Bwarp mobile to be. So when I found the perfect car at Stortford Auto Sales - I made a quick call to some contacts in Hastings, who put me onto Brendon (a salesman at the yard). Brendon is a really good bloke and gave me an excellent price on a low KM's 2003 model of the car I wanted.
The roady started Friday night. Jumped in Kanes pedo ute, stocked up on beers (Coopers India Pale Ale to be exact - good brew - highly recommend). and hit the road. Kane left his phone at home, so we had to turn round and get it after we filled up with diesel.... Nice one Kane.... haha
Stopped in Levin for some KFC DoubleDown loving. Zinger with added BBQ sauce. It's excellent I suggest you try it.
We made it to Hastings in one piece. Had a few more beers at my uncle and auntys place, and then crashed.
Up in the morning. EXCITED AS for my new ride. As we came down Heretaunga st I could see my freshly waxed new baby glistening in the winter sun.
Brendon gave me the keys and I took her for a swing through town. She went well. Handled better than expected, and the factory stereo system was more capable than I assumed.
She was PERFECT.
We filled up with gas. and hit the road back to Wellington..... to an NZ Hondas meet..... The perfect place for a Nissans first outing..... *cough*
