72 Eldorado, 35000 miles
« on: January 09, 2018, 12:02:37 PM »
I'm posting this for a friend who doesn't have a computer.  This car came from his aunt who bought it new.  It's in beautiful condition, but the A/C is not working.  The car is in the Florida Keys, so you could make it a vacation when you pick it up!  Call Chipper for more info (305) 522-1620.  $9500 OBO.

Thanks, Lou-q

I agree.   But, getting cars into Australia now has been toughened up, simply because the Authorities are now checking everything for any Asbestos, and the cost of removal is borne by the importer.

Bruce,
So... they're worried about asbestos now?? That reminds me of a story. I had a little pet mole many years ago. I trained him to talk. I asked him what his favorite things were. He said , " molasses & asbestos". I sent him to Hobart soon after that. LOL!!!

A couple of the importers to our fine land, now have their own asbestos inspectors that can get the cars through.
The over the top initial approach to it seems to have settled down now.

G'day Kevin,

I am not against the removal of the Asbestos, but having to remove it in the first place is the killer.

Having to remove Brake and Clutch Linings is understandable but the possibility of Cylinder Head Gaskets is really going a step too far.

Back in the days of the cars and boats we want to import, Asbestos was everywhere.
