I bought her new and sold at 5 years old. She went to Canberra, Sydney, and Perth, before coming back to Sydney. I purchased her back in 2016. She's had a full body and underbody paint job but interior trim is still original. The aftermarket bonnet cowl was added while she was in Perth. I fitted the "fake" Simmons to emulate the Moffat/Bond Bathurst cars. I try to drive her regularly so having the 5 speed manual suits me and the FMX is tucked away in the shed along with the original wheels.
