The journey...




Took one of my colleagues to check out the car which was in yakkala. The guy we bought from insisted that we get the car towed to wherever we were heading.He made me sign a piece of paper which says I'm solely responsible for whatever happens to me/occupants or to the car(this was my first red flag😂).

The car had bold tyres on all four corners,Brakes only to the front wheels,no handbrake(not even the leaver), No horn, non of the gauges work,but a new battery. YAY!!!! 😂(Only thing which was made in this millennium)

Everything made sense as soon as I got the car out of his property.  I had to stand on the brake pedal to make the car slow down, not to stop, you cant literally stop the car but only to slow it. And there was a terrible wheel wobble above 40km/h.  There were few times we thought we'd lost a tyre, it was that bad. The gear leaver was so sloppy even the CIA won't find the right gears.

2nd gear had a mind of its own, we could hear the gear teeth been chewed off when we try to change to 2nd.

we drove from yakkala to Colombo and it took only 2 hours🤗. Rained cats and dogs mid way guess what?? Yeah the wiper motor was rooted too 😂. And to top it off windows wouldn't wind down because hand crank was missing.

All in all it was a fun ride. Managed to get ourselves and the car safely to Colombo.

Congratulations on the purchase. Can relate to all of the symptoms described at various points of my history of car ownership - except maybe the lack of a handbrake lever. :) 

Good luck in restoring her to her former glory.
