History
1st owner was in Rockhampton Queensland. Then an engineer in his mid 20's bought it as a bit of a project. So it moved to the Gold coast. He added a fair few modifications then he had to move to America. Thats where i stepped in. With only 185000kms for a 88 and the condition i was impressed so i parted with $10,000.
