Yes jetsetters I recently landed back in Bowen after working in Perth 3000 miles away.
I was walking up the street looking for a kebab and my bank manager zeroed in on me like a white pointer shark after some surfer's leg - he can smell blood no money my money a mile away. Indeed he had the grin of a Cheshire cat on Colombian cocaine.
How friendly he is - "No get away from me you swine I don't want any more money" I yelp. "But you must you must it's essential" like a Black Mamba he replied laughing.
And yes safely back in the safety of my country lair and after consuming copious cartons of the amber fluid and indeed after ordering an $800 beer brewing kit that will produce 120 litres of Russian beer at 11 percent I delighted at the prospect of being retired and unemployable.
I started organising my man cave ( den of iniquity mark V.) The weather was perfect, and I tuned into the russling of leaves in the wind as I swept up all the broken glass after affixing another nicotine patch to my foot sweetly placed inside of my new Flosheim brothel creeper sneakers.
I put all my specialised Rolls Royce tools together in one cupboard together with my straight from California RR AC Test Box. I could smell and truly feel car restoration nirvana descending upon me at the speed of light.
Now I had time to really live life and hop straight into my number one drug - car tinkering.
First I will cut the grass and tow the Mark One Jaguar from the front yard and place it under cover after moving the piano from in front of the Camargue, then I will remove the rear door of the Jaguar 420G and start sanding before measuring up the Purple Spirit for its second LPG tank and a new kick ass battery no need to pay the land rates they can wait.
Life was bloody perfect - blissful.
And then the phone rang. It was my neighbour Mad Donna. So I made the mistake of walking over to see what she wanted.
Now a cattle station 32 kilometres away wants a mechanic and are sending a car to collect me and my tools tomorrow.
But this is an aside. I went back to looking at cars for sale in LA and NY.
I swear my bank manager is really a full blown gypsy with a fully functional crystal ball.
This classic car caper is worse than a heroin habit.
Hello my name is Vladimir and I am a Classic Car Aholic. The AA meetings of car nuts.
No! Bugger it. I will not give myself over to a higher power.
As soon as I get the cash I will fly directly to Leningrad and hire the wild girls....and the onto see my brother Sasha will a dozen bottles of Vodka and a pint of cognac and then to wild dancing in Russian nightclubs.
That way the bank manager won't be able to get me.

No problem Robert. I will see if I have time to open the box and get the info which I hope is on the back of the metre before the car arrives tomorrow to take me to work on horrid jap 4wds.
Have you been in contact with Patrick in Cal yet?

Vlad why are you paying double or triple the price in NY and CA. I'm betting down here in Texas you will have enough left over to actually make money.
Be careful a lot of thieves on there.
If you really want to tinker (old cars, rust buckets)

I don't deal with these kind of cars so I have no idea if this is a good deal. Example here in Texas.
1950 MG TD Roadster - $18500
Authentic 1950 MG TD restored English roadster. First year model produced with left hand drive for the American market.
1951 Jaguar XK120 Coupe $27500
For me in this condition this is way way too much money.

Lizzie Borden took an axe
And gave her mother forty whacks
When she saw what she had done
She gave her father forty-one
