How i came about getting the Scorpion

Ive been wanting a bit of a project and stress relief for some time now and had been watching eBay and saw Scorpions come and go every now and again and when i saw this one come up and with no bids and a buy it now of $500 i figured i would enquire and see if it was a runner…

It Was!

something about the colour caught my eye initially i think, and the fact that in the photos

the car looked straight and the interior was clean apart from that dashpad…

oh what a mess that is.

so spur of the moment i decided to buy it and travelled down to Melbourne by Bus and Train my the 8 year old in tow.. to pick it up, with a day permit from Vic Roads in hand…

Other than having a tyre that was low and an idling problem when i first took off it ran well and handled the 4 hour trip home with ease and sat on 110 on the Freeway with ease…

It did however sound like a thumping V8!
