Hi everyone.
I'm looking at buying a GQ wagon that's in Blacktown NSW. I'm 600Kms west, in Leeton and looking for someone who can give me an independent idea of what it's like.
Not a comprehensive assessment (no tools needed), just a look at the colour of the oil, a listen for rattles, quick check for rust.

Any ideas on who I should talk to?
The catch is that it needs to be either today or tomorrow, after about 4:00pm.

Been reading here for a while, thanks for the help you've already given me.

Thanks Mate, all organised with UR-50-LO.
I rang a few mechanics there and none could help. Obviously I missed your number.
Thanks anyway.

We got it. Picked it up Sunday, did over 650Km in it Monday (yesterday).
Love it. Thanks again for your help.
Now I have a heap of questions about it.
Got the service manual, wish I had an owners manual. Haven't found one yet.

The previous owner said you were impressed.
Not many around here, and would cost a lot more too.

SWMBO wanted that Patrol badly (auto & 6 cylinder = she can drive it lol). She tried talking me into buying it and selling ours but Luckily for you I was wearing the pants that day!!!



(well not really...I had to promise her another car)

HAHAHA Sounds like I owe you big time.

At least down there others will be selling.
Seen 2 GQ's for sale here.
One was a shorty that'd been bashed to death and they wanted nearly 5k for it.
The other is a rusty unregistered diesel that a scrap metal bloke has, and he reckons it's worth more than 4k.
