G'day gang,

There are currently 3 Eurekas for sale up on Gumtree and all of them are from Western Australia.  Smiley

The latest one to hit the market is the super slick 1EUREKA which you might remember was a Sports built by Kym Cramer with a 2.2 litre Subaru motor, full engineering and painted in Holdens Tigre Mica.  Cool Afro

And don't forget Stuarts sweet turbo'd VW F4 is still available up on CarSales too.  Grin

Geez Kym's old car is a steal at that price!  Whoever buys that will have done well for themselves.  Hopefully all will find good homes.

I believe Kym's car was sold for $25,000, not long after it was finished.

It will definately get snapped up at that price, that's if everything is running ok.

Well worth over $25,000 even now.

I used to talk with Kym on ICQ, and I once asked him what he thought it was worth. He said he wouldn't take anything less than $25k. So yea, that car is currently a steal.

Kym's car is probably the finest Eureka there is (sorry Radek!), but I must admit I've never seen the car  in the flesh. That rear end is totally custom, I remember him talking about the effort he took in fabing it up. Lets just say if you get it, we're all going to be jealous!  lol

I'm not surprised really, that was a price that you'd need to jump on straight away I reckon.  Hopefully we'll see the new owner show themselves on the group in the future.

G'day gang,

The third one on this list of WA Reeks I posted a little while ago has had a couple of photos added to the advert at last and while it looks pretty sweet, it appears to be another MAKO rather than a Reek. eg. different rear bumper and undersill, wrap around rubberised front bumper thingy and of course the flat windscreen. Roll Eyes Undecided

The advert lists it as being orange but it looks red to me. Whistle

Still looks like a nice example though and the 2 litre T4 donk should push it along rather well. Evil Grin

WA Rego, T-top roof, Hurricane wheels, 2 litre motor - $12,500
