The experience of buying this car turned out to be a pleasure, due to the family we bought the car from. The car was originally purchased brand new by the mother for herself, and when she upgraded after 4-5 years she gave the car to her daughter to drive. And I couldn't see either of them treating the car badly ... which the RACV definitely inspection agreed with.
But here's the usual thing about the whole experience ... I'm the excited one and Clarissa can't be more blase about it. Figures huh!
Anyway, I've posted the best of the photos I managed to get, considering the MOOD, and mind you one of them is as the car drives away. Because, of course, Clarissa's enjoying her freedom and taking big sister with her. Maybe I'll get a better, and happier, photo of Clarissa and the car another day.
The car disappearing (check out the impact of the drought)
And for anybody worried about yet another P plater on the road in Melbourne; don't on account of Clarissa. She was nagged for so long when she was learning to drive (for more than 12 months) that she drives like a grandmother and I feel really safe with her. Or at least she does when I'm with her!
