RE: 1992 Syncro
not really, legally the registered owner needs to supply up to date paper work, i llegal to sell a car with out papers, and a verbal agreement is legally binding,

I may be a mechanic, but i can't fix stupid

RE: 1992 Syncro
Update:
I got a call out of the blue this morning from the chap that owns the vehicle. He has bought another vehicle and can't get the disc for his new vehicle which he has paid for until he clears out all his old fines which is now apparently sitting at R25k. Not sure how it got there from R7k, but anyhow. At least he contacted me because I had given up.
He has informed me that he will sort this out by the end of the month.
I phoned Frans and he will ensure the bus is ready for collection then.

This is my last attempt at this and if he doesn't pull through, then I walk away.

Hope it works out. I did tell you to be patient, but there are limits of course.

This project has officially come to an end as I cannot win with getting the papers. The guy has apparently paid the fines but we can't get the disc from him, and then heard he has lost the ownership papers. That is when I realised I had no hope in getting that bus.

I guess it just wasn't meant to be. Pity I had to wait 11 months and 10 days to find that out.

Need to move this thread from Projects to failures section AngrySadConfusedDodgy

RE: 1992 Syncro
I have manager to find a 2l Dirk Ellis conversion via Frans (a customer of his). I have had the bus all weekend and it drives like a dream. My understanding is that everything is pretty much the same as an original Syncro with exception of how you engage (electronic).

Question - is what I have been told correct ? Is the off road capability the same as the original ? And is there anything that I should know about the conversion before I make payment ?

Any advise will be appreciated. - Thanks Chaps
