History
Bought In July 2014 for AU$900. For over 230,000km runs perfectly.
Hit a 3.5 tonne tipper truck that didn't give way in November, doing around 70km/h. That's when "Appa" got the nickname "Battlescars". Cannot believe I drove away with nothing but cosmetic damage and requiring only a rear tail light and passenger mirror. Lucky I went under the truck's tray I suppose.

Modifications

Drivetrain
1.5 DOHC standard block with plenty of get up n go. I haven't had to look under there often as it just keeps on going. Very little oil consumption, no coolant leaks. Cannot fault it so far [knock on wood]
Interior
My favorite bands, just to make the inside a little more interesting.
Exterior
Skull theme, I was bored. The gear knob is where it all started.
Audio
Boring ol' 50W/channel MP3 stereo with speakers from a home entertainment system in the rear parcel shelf. Front genuine speakers crackle so the balance is set way back. It still cranks the tunes well so I'm not complaining.
CB radio recently installed keeps me within earshot of help if I get lost in the woods.
