    Part of the problem, the media and the politics.
    You got both extreme lefts/rights quoting their pov muck and the media trolls it all over the place and the social side is just a trolling pot.
    No wonder more idiots are breading more and more.
    Everyone wants their pedestal to stand on but none can just say, you know what, we just got to agree together no matter our differences for the better cause of global welfare.

    yep, agree with above sentiments.

    remember a Perth bloke got charged for Assault for throwing an egg at Gillard - missed her and hit a security guard.

    I gave up on the news years ago. Nine and Seven's (and Ten's) problem is that they have to fill an hour at 6PM every night, but also make it different from their news in the morning, at lunch time, and then every hour from 3PM. We are a nation of Twenty Five-ish Million People. We do not have that much news, and it's all just the same shit, plus what A Current Affair used to have as well, plus the commercials (don't get me started on them). I get the networks need to make money, but seriously, advertise to me, and I won't buy your product...

    Day to day encounters...

    Trying to sell a fucking car, or three in my case.

    A personal friend is interested in the RIO for $6000
    I was thinking closer to $9000

    Havn't had an offer higher than $7000 for the BA it's advertised at $15000

    And the EB is only worth $1600 apparently I want $6000 minimum.

    Dunno how you Tickford blokes get $40000+ FOR an AU ?!!

    Not long now and that goddam BA is gonna be a convertible

    I think the T badge weighs something for even AU XR8's in good shape pull fair dollars, as for the top end product T1 T2 T3 - well its the seller holding firm imo and with not many to chose from has held them good dollars in the market.

    None of them are desirable collectibles. This means market value is the dictator. I can't speak for the RIO other than there is a lot of competition and supply for this used category. Consider pushing your friend to $6800- $7500 with a tank of fuel and take it.

    As for the Falcon's, while not collectible both are in a unique condition and modified to taste. My recommendation is to present using exceptional photo's, focusing on their unique points of difference and attention to detail. If you sell a modified or restored car in the same way as an average one, you will only attract average buyers that will make average to low ball offers. Lets the pictures do the selling for you Daz. Its a worthwhile investment if you want to get more than an average market price for them.

    It not like your current photo's are terrible, you just need some hero ones to attract interest and the right type of buyers. Action shots are great because they are more relatable and sell the 'experience' rather than the components. If nothing else, once the cars are long gone you will have some beautiful photos that represent the result of all your hard work to keep and share.

    Here is an example of an engine bay shot. This barra (in a VL) is not as pretty as yours but you get the idea
