After a year of lots of great walking (which I'm not going to stop!), buses, taxis, or scrounging lifts from friends... I finally have a car of my own again, to be able to get around! Yay!
It's a "definitely pre-loved" 1990 Ford Telstar TX-5 Ghia - and it runs really really well. Included TEN months registration + new tyres + new battery.
Here's a positive as well... I ended-up selling my previous car (at a huge loss) for $300 in Warwick... THIS car has cost me $290 incl. transferring the registration. So, in a funny way, I'm actually ahead of the raw deal I received with my previous car up in Warwick!
A HUGE thank you to Peter Drew at Rosconi Bros in Bathurst, for the amazing deal. Seriously - thank you! I feel encouraged and appreciated.
Having access to a car again basically means that I can see my sons a whole lot more often than I have been able to (until now), that I have transport for work prospects (this has been a huge hurdle), that I can start performing live music again (transporting gear etc), and I might even get re-involved with sailing out at Carcoar Dam... but we'll see about that one (for now).
