ME: I am a 20 year old male living in the western suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. :D I currentley work as a (wait for it.....) Pizza Delivery Driver :)lol:) so my car is important to me to be working at all times!! Or at least not on Wed, Sat or Sundays! lol

My Ride: I drive a 1981 Toyota Corolla KE70 XX Sedan. 1.3 Carby 4KC motor, 5 spd manual tranny, nice bluey-grey standard interior, air con and a sunroof all standard. :) Red paint with black "fully-sick racing" [sic] (standard too) stripes down the sides. Steel 13" 'sports' rims as standard too! lol

Mods: CD PLAYER!!!!! Cant live without the damn thing! lol Along with 6 1/2" front splits, 6x9's on the parcel shelf, and a 12' sub in ported enclosure in the boot. All Pioneer and all sounding sweet to me. A self-install, did similar on first car ( 89 Camry) but have still spent got the best for the cash I had. :D A CB radio and aerial, just to talk to some truckies I know when I head interstate, a set of floodlights mounted to the front bumper, volts gauge, water temp gauge (factory one went spastic) (volts mounted near cd player under dash, temp on steering column) and new gearkno and steering wheel. The standard ones suck hardcore! :mad:

yeah its mostly standard, but have been crusing around here, and have been picking up alot of ideas and inspiration! Thanks guys, glad to be here and dont plan to leave! :lol:

Cheers

Plans for the rolla atm are keep it alive...and upgrade it to be a lil better! :D lol

Crazy storys? Well aside from all the usual near misses from dickhead drivers...there have been some good ones....

#1: A married couple and their ~8yr old son (on a delivery) asked me in to their house on Christmas Eve so they could take a photo of me with them in front of the Xmas tree...I have never seen these people before in my life!!!!!!!!! :eek:

#2: Being given a police escort along a closed section of highway! :D I had a delivery that I needed to cross 3 suburbs to get to..(the tip alone was worth it :) ) and the quickest way was to use the freeway...which had been closed due to an accident...well the cops were doing RBT's at the same time and I got chatting with the constable who tested me...And I mentioned that I was delivering...can I cut ahead or something, I was in a hurry...Well the Sergeant heard that, and having delivered to the station (3 large, free of charge!) a few days prior....they had me and a highway patrol car..which are Ford Falcon XR8's painted bright blue and orange/pink...lights, sirens and me in my rolla grinning from ear to ear....if only it did more than 110km/hr without dire protest... :(

Thats all I can be bothered typing for now...

Cheers
