For Sale: 1998 Holden Barina City 3 Door Manual Hatchback. Approximately 164,200 kms. Registration until 30 October 2014.

I'm reluctantly selling this absolute beast of a vehicle as I'm moving overseas. I've owned it now for about six years. It's been fantastic. It's an extremely reliable, low-cost, well-maintained, park-anywhere runabout. I originally bought it because it is the cheapest to insure of all reasonable small vehicles, and extremely cheap to run. Just a hint of petrol will allow this kick-ass, four-wheeled tiger to take you to the stars. Just step on the gas pedal. I dare you.

And of course, it has totally killer rims: four no less, and it sounds like about a million bears roaring at once when you rev its guts out. Yes, quite frankly, this little gem goes like the clappers and I'm not ashamed to say it. I've run Lamborghinis off the road with this thing. Numerous times. Because in case you didn't notice, this thing has speed stripes. Pink and purple, baby. Oh yes it does.

Other things to note: as you can see from the last photograph, I happen to be a bit of a handyman. There’s a couple of Phillips head screws elegantly holding in place the wheel guard on the driver’s side of the car. Don’t like my handy-work, you say? No problem, it would be an easy fix to get hold of a spare plastic bracket to keep the guard in place. However, why bother? Countless passers-by have recognised and commented on this no-fuss DIY addition and the charming character it has imparted on this sexy, swinging "Barina connosieur's" Barina.

Also, the air-con will need re-gassing to get cold air, but heat is still fine. And it's winter, so how handy's that?

Also, the on-board sound system is currently the original cassette/radio combo unit. But it will need the code from Holden to make it run because we disconnected the battery a year ago when we went on holiday. I didn't think it was worth getting the code, since guess what?! I'm throwing in a CD player head deck with the car! Yes that's right, the leopard-print JVC CD player you see in the photos will be all yours. For FREE! For free? YES! So you mean I can play CDs if I want, OR the radio, OR cassettes? Sort of!..and only if you get it installed first. WHOO-HOOOO!

So, what are you doing?! Vote now. Vote many times. Vote 1: Barina! You have ten days to make it count!

It's a 99c start auction. Welcome aboard people. This thing is in spectacular condition. If you want to check it out, get in touch with me. It's at Mortdale, NSW.
