Been a while... Looking Again... SSS...
« on: Apr 20, 2013, 03:22PM »
G'day,

About 6 years ago (early/mid 2007) I was hoping to buy a U13 S2 SSS Bluebird... Asked a fair few questions here after finding the site, and delighting in the fact that there was a local Bluebird "fan club", having also enjoyed online communities for my Nissan 280zx.

Well, sadly it wasn't to be that time... Instead we ended up with a 99 Toyota Camry... *sigh*  We had a boy in October 07, and over the following 12 months, my Zed was driven less and less, til we let the rego expire, and it sat til Oct'11, when I sold it for $1,000 to a young chap from Toowoomba... *sniff*  Hopefully he's restored it to driving condition and is enjoying it.

We've since left sunny QLD, and now live in Geelong.  We've also added to the family just a few weeks ago, so the Camry has a baby seat and a booster seat in it now, and whilst I'm currently only doing some temp work, we'll need a second car when I gain full time employment...  Whilst I'd love that to be a new (old) Zed, it'll more likely need to be a 4 door, so once more I'm back thinking of the good old Bluey...

Looking online, I see they seem to be selling for around $2-5k, depending on model, year, km's... Considerably cheaper than they were in 07, though of course the Camry's probably worth a lot less too now...

Here's hoping this time I'll end up with a Bluebird, and not another Camry...

cheers

Hey mate!

Yeah, they are quite cheap now.

See if you can get a SSS Series II for under 3.5k ... anything around 160-200k

Mine has 233,000 on it now and still runs perfectly :) Pulls 800km a week.

You can get SSS u13s for under 1k these days with minimal issues, just got to know where to look.

And budge, how the hell do you pull 800km from a ka a week ? My old SOHC would only pull 400-450 a week and that's granny driving!
