Wagonshaw is back!!!!!

Yes thats right shes back from the dead!!!

Late last year wagonshaw was taken from dan and sold at pickles auctions for the sum of $2300.

Later that week i saw it parked up in a drive way on the way to work.

Now on friday i heard a rumble coming from down the road so i looked and saw a black walky wagon with no number plates, i became suspicious of this wagon because it reminded me of wagonshaw.

Today coming back from subway i passed the same house i saw the wreck sitting in and sure enough it was sitting there with the sun light glimmering off the shiney black paint.

So i turned around and took some photos they have done an awsome job getting this wagon back to were it was i could not fault there repair job at all from what i saw.

These boys bought this car and have been steadily doing it up, good to see her back. Just needs a clean and polish by the looks.
Dunno about the dark grey rims agains the black though. Wonder if Dan has seen it ?

I mentioned something to Dan about it last night and he said that it was supposed to be a complete write off, otherwise I guess he would have had it fixed. Unless someone bull****ted him because he was over east for airforce bootcamp at the time.....

Looks good....

There are 2 types of write off's, the first is when the car has a twisted chassis or whatever, im pretty sure they are completly deregisted and cant be re-registered without full engineer inspecton and taking it over pits...
the other is a financial write off its then the damage 2 the car will cost more 2 fix than what the car is supposably worth. i think they are kept registerd and its up to the owner if they wanna fix it at there own cost. You do have to buy it back off the insurance company if you wanna fix it or wreck it or else it goes to pickles

I think this is right?

Wagonshaw most probably would have been Financial if i remember the photos of the crash properly...wasnt to bad was it??

Yeah agree with ya there Craig, the damage would have been enough to write the car off from a financial perspective but not bad enough that it couldnt have been re-built.
I am sure we will see if up for sale at some stage soon

Yeah thats what I thought was the case when the wagon was at the auctions.... that it was a finanical write off not a structural write off.
I'll talk with Dan again about it later...
