The death of TURDBO !

Postby turdbo » Sat Jul 05, 2014 6:48 pm

As a couple of you (but not many) know, a few years ago i brought a very tidy T1 off King city.

Everything you would want done to it had been sorted,including a decent respray and all that pesky rust removed.
I loved driving it, it was my everyday car and she did me proud!

Until one night.. When some A$$ H()\_3 smashes into me while i was parked at a set of lights,reversed his car out of the wreckage and scarpered!

After my vision returned i managed to grab his plate, called the cops ( which of course was fruitless ) and chatted to the other witnesses.

Being fully insured ( for 7k ;) ) i got paid out etc and began my long search for another turbo city, mainly because i loved driving it and all the looks she got and also because i had already brought the plate (that suits nothing else) and had no where to stick my Motocompo! Which was luckily in the garage at the time.

Where am i going with all this??? Well the search is over and this time its T2 all the way!

So im going to do a bit of a build thread ( because everybody loves them ) and use it to gather advice and input for things like what road i should go down colour wise, if i am going to create my own custom side skirts etc.

So please don't be shy to add comments!

I am going to add a few photos here and there,starting with TURDBO in her glory and at the moment of death ( the faint of heart please look away)

Happy driving ya'll! and ill see you on the streets.

Good to see you have found yourself a new one!
I still reckon my red t1 would have done the job :lol: Looking forward to the build photos and progress
