History
I purchased Pandora in october 2018 for $6500. It was a bit of an impulse/risky buy. she had 400,000km on the clock, no service history and I inspected her at night time with a cheap flashlight. She wasnt much to look at, she had almost bald 31inch tyres on 15" rims, surface rust here and there and the windows were tinted with cheap film that i presume were once black but had faded to this horrible brown colour. She had alot of unattractive features but to me it was love at first sight. She was everything I was looking for in a GQ. silvertop TD42, No performance mods (except 2inch lift), Engine starts up straight almost immediately without blowing any smoke and only had mature aged owners. The Night I brought her home I also bought a turbo kit cos even though i wasnt 100% sure on how worn the engine was internally....I was ready to repair any and all damage that she may have so I knew no matter what this engine will one day be turbo charged. Pandora spent the first few weeks with me in the stuck in the carport on stands while I thoroughly Inspected her. The health of the TD42 shocked me. I compression tested and every cylinder showed a reading of around 425psi (give or take 5-10psi). Without hesitation I started installing the turbo kit and within a week she was no longer slowing down traffic.
