Just did Registration and Licensing on the car,they held back the license disc,till i do Roadworthy.Now i can start the restoration process with a clean piece of mind,knowing that the car is Registered in my name.

@Gordini,Basie ek soek nog daai spots,ek dog jy het hulle dalk al verkoop... :cry:

Very nice find! Much better than the other you were looking at! Looking at the pictures I would stay with that yellow, I have seen a one owner very low km car in Bloem thats the same colour as well as other examples.

Enjoy the rebuild!
