“My cousin promised it to my son when he turns 18, and so we drove up to Queensland and drove it back home in April.
“My cousin bought it when it was 12 months old and they had it for 20 years.”
The car’s clocked up around 155,000km.

“You don’t see cars like this anymore. They were $53,000 when they were new.
“I love white cars, but I had no choice with this one.”
