It ain't half big?

To our USA syncro members,

When it comes to US media, thankfully Oz normally doesn't rate a mention at all.
So you may not know it.
Your President Barack Obama just visited us.
I wonder what he thought about US intentions when he flew over it?
The attached map puts Oz into some perspective.
Big enough? ... Even for a syncro circumnavigation and/or criss cross N-S and E-W!

Had no idea our illustrious leader was even visiting your hamlet. You'd have to attack, be invaded, buy big, or sell big to get any mention in our press.

Or perhaps it is because you don't have enough Syncros in OZ to merit any real attention. There's probably more Syncros in my State of the Republik of Kalifornya than the entire Australian continent. You heard it here first. More Syncros = more media and Obama attention.

You figure out a way to get me elected President of the United States of America and I promise you a pair of T3/T25 Syncros with sequential production numbers even if it means we invade Europe all over again. ;-)

Actually, I feel quite hard done by.   I had my own business and paid myself an obscene amount of money, even when profits plummeted.   I drank and gambled to excess, bought cars and yachts, and I finished up in deep debt.  Why isn’t the EU giving me billions as a reward for being irresponsible and stupid?

Ben,

I can’t think of anyone amongst the members who would have bought their Syncro for other than cash.  We have a few original who might have been of a bank overdraft or similar.

Don't apologise Les.

I love this sort of humorous post. Thats one reason why Ben T was sorely missed when he was axed from the forum briefly.

Les,

In the US, the term "overdraft" is a form of credit.;-)

Anyway, 90% of new car purchases here are financed. Interest paid on those loans makes it through various funds and banks all over the planet. Chances are good that if you have money in some bank or investment firm, the money you took out to purchase your Syncro was partially paid for by interest your account has earned. In other words, someone else's "living beyond their means" might have helped live within yours.

As far as Syncros go, I cannot think of any of the 300+ enthusiasts I've been personally acquainted with who financed their Syncro purchase. It's graduated to collector vehicle status. Financing companies are reluctant to loan money on vehicle which they cannot readily determine the value.

Sorry BenT, something a little closer then that won't wear out the Syncro on a 6,000m round trip. Would be a nice drive though. Are your syncros original diesels or have you replaced a WBX?

Bruce,

One Syncro had a JX (1.6TD) from the factory along with 16" option. The engine was replaced with an AAZ (1.9TD). The other was a DX (1.6NA) with AAZ as well. I do have other T3's which are not Syncros. All started life w/ WBX's. One was a Subaru 2.2EJT, another an ABA VW inline-4 w/ earlier non-crossflow head from a 1.8 gasser mounted at 15 degrees. Recently sold another w/ a 1.8 VW Inline-4 w/ CIS-E. 

I generally can't leave things well enough alone. The 16" Doka is as close to original as I have. Besides the engine, the drivetrain is "as-delivered". The body has had surgery to implant a 4th door ala' Tristar. A Swedish Vindic canopy has been installed to protect the cargo with a so-called headache rack to protect the occupants. Brakes are dual-piston Audi G60's w/ 303mm discs upfront & stock LT size drums in the rear. Steel wrap-around SA bumpers up front w/ rears to be installed. 17" alloys for daily wear and 16" factory steelies for trail work. Other than those few modest add-ons, she is as close to the way she was delivered.

With 6.17 R&P with a diesel turning things, it is more than happy to pull tree stumps all day. But a trip to New York would require the patience of Job. It's not a 'job' I am willing to take.

Thank you, Skot. Now I just need to get you to emigrate here; become a naturalised citizen; then register to vote!

One down. 311,000,000 to go. Oh wait, I only need a small percentage of that.

The inside joke was that I cannot run for President here unless the US Constitution is amended to permit foreign born citizens to run for the top office. Hence, the campaign which seemed impossible. If you can change the US Constitution, returning the T3 Syncro to production can be accomplished with much less effort.

Or perhaps it is because you don't have enough Syncros in OZ to merit any real attention. There's probably more Syncros in my State of the Republik of Kalifornya than the entire Australian continent. You heard it here first. More Syncros = more media and Obama attention.

You figure out a way to get me elected President of the United States of America and I promise you a pair of T3/T25 Syncros with sequential production numbers even if it means we invade Europe all over again. ;-)

Ken,

Politicians have been buying votes since Adam & Eve took a straw poll on who was going to bite the apple first.;-)

I've you've voted for a politician recently, it was for some reason. Regardless of the recent, you voted for them because they met your requirement. Requirement being your price. They've bought your vote.

The first thing I learned in contract law is there has to be compensation in a contract. Compensation doesn't always have to be in money. It could be love and affection. Or it could be Syncros in every garage. For some of us, love and affection and Syncro are synonymous or synchronous.

Anyway, forget about what Obama is doing. Remember my campaign promise, you Aussie's figure out a way to get me elected to the US Presidency and I will be make sure our government give each and everyone of you get a brand new Syncro in the colour of your choice even if it means, my great grandchildren's grandchildren have to put their grandchildren to work before the age of eight to pay for it.

My vote is very easily bought though Ben.

Any Politicians out there - start sending the cheques through now!

Thank you, Skot. Now I just need to get you to emigrate here; become a naturalised citizen; then register to vote!

One down. 311,000,000 to go. Oh wait, I only need a small percentage of that.

The inside joke was that I cannot run for President here unless the US Constitution is amended to permit foreign born citizens to run for the top office. Hence, the campaign which seemed impossible. If you can change the US Constitution, returning the T3 Syncro to production can be accomplished with much less effort.
