Here is the rest of my family :D The silver one is a 2004 Diamante VR-X it has a 3.5 litre AWD V6, I have lowered it, fitted 3.5 inch stainless big bore and its running 18in alloys, Its a realy nice car and the first brand new one I have bought. They only come in 5 spd tiptronic.

This one is a 2003 Mitsubishi Galant VR, It is FWD and runs a 2.5 litre V6 this allso has a tiptronic trans but is 4 spd, I bought this as an ex demonstrator with 2000ks on the clock and to date it has only done 25000k, my wife drives this one every day and she wont let me play with it until the factory waranty runs out :(

And last but not least is my beloved 1964 MK3 ford zodiac I have owned this car for about 25 years and has been stored for 20 of them waiting for the time and effort owed to it to bring it back to its former glory. it is stock standard and even has the original X-ply tires on it, It has 62000 miles on the speedo. It is a realy great old car.
Hope you like :)

Just be happy that you have 4(?) cars. Most women complain if you have 2 or if you have 1 and want a 2nd. They all look like nice cars. That Ford, are you going to restore it to factory condition? or you going to tweak it up tp your standards?

The ford has lasted 40 years with out the natives getting there hands on it so it can just sit where it is for as long as it takes for me to restore it to standard. It still has the factory AM radio in it. allthough it has been under cover all these years the rubber parts have all perished. NZ has a name for restoration work and all of the parts are still avalible localy for it new. but they are not cheap !
My intention was to get into the clasic car club and involve the family in outings my wife is not a car person and i thought by doing that we might get on a bit better,
Then came the legacy !! well since buying that I have met a whole new group of people from all walks of life and have been on heaps of runs and events and am realy enjoying it.
I only bought the Legacy to pull it apart as I have only ever worked on old skool cars and V8s and turbo rice is where it is at now it seems !
but now I am reluctant to pull it apart as I will miss out on various events.
