Hey on my last trip to Launie, I saw two gazelle's, one was a bronze hatch with red P's and looked pretty straight, and the other was a 2 tone silver/grey coupe which looked cool cause it was the first time I'd seen another coupe besides my own (in real life). On a previous trip i also saw a silver hatch parked on punchbowl road. Now the only Gaz ive seen in Newcastle is Sam's when i picked up his old engine, so this seems to be a little hot spot, is there any more in Launie that any 1 knows about? I'm moving to Launie for 6 months next yr and bringing me Gaz, so just interested? :P

Theres 5 I know of in Devonport.

Mine. 17x7/8 Sparco wheels, lowered, good suspension, slotted rotors, alpine 2008-series based sound system etc etc etc etc

A stock blue/silver two tone notch, owned by mid aged lady, black hair, works around the KMart/Coles/Woolies Area.

A dirty white hatchback that has been mistaken for mine, 'roundabout drifter', old rusty corroded broken wheels on it. sh** repco-style exhaust, doesnt fit properly.

A neat brown hatchback, currently for sale, fully standard, asking 5000+

A red one hatch, standard afaik, he's a member on here.

From what i saw, which was only a glance, the side was pretty straight so it must be a different 1. and with all the 1's Dave's mentioned there's seems to be a fare few in Northern Tassie. Certainly more than Newcastle. :yes:

Hey im now living in launie for a couple of months, and i spotted a darkish grey coupe with resprayed spots, not sure of the suburb think it was near summer hill or somewhere near there, any one on here driving that one?

And also looking to do a ca18de swap as my engine just clicked over 400 000 km's and started making a currently unknown noise,thus all the more reason to do a swap! so if any one here's of 1 4sale it would be great if u could let us know thanks.
