Mitsubishi Mechanic?

By alym - 26 May 2009 17

Any recommendations for a Canberra mechanic familiar with an 85 Mitsubishi Sigma? 

Recently located from Queensland to inner-south Canberra and have already taken it to one mechanic at Fyshwick who could only partially fix the problem.

[ED – Might it be cheaper to get another car?]

What’s Your opinion?

No, I think he’s hoping to knock off Clare Werbeloff as Australia’s latest internet export.

I always go to Darren at A&D Automotive. When I had a Magna he was the only one who appeared to be able to fix it.

I won’t ever buy a Mitsubishi again.

Like Joshua, my first rig was an ’82 Sigma (2.6L auto). The old wog who sold it to me said: “it already run for 300k, so it run for another 300k no problem”. I couldn’t fault his logic, so I hastily forked over the $900 bones I had saved by doing the Isaacs milk-run. The thing pumped out so much smoke that Cheech & Chong actually wanted to use it for one of their movies, and the roof lining would sag to eye-height during the summer months. Needless to say it $hat me to tears, so I was ecstatic when an Asian family took it off my hands for double what I paid for it. I still feel a bit guily wondering if they made it out of the suburb.

That is one damn fine automobile you have there son. Is it equipped with the much vaunted Astron 2000 powerplant?

I’ve always wanted to push a car off the top floor of a multi-level carpark and see what it looked like when it hit the ground….

Is it insured?

Awesome. My first car when I went Uni was a beatup old second hand ’85 model Stigma. Amongst it’s great attributes was the lack of a heater which made a trip to the snow one year with some mates an adventure in masochism.

Speaking of old bombs – are there any wreckers left in Canberra.

Where can I get rid of a car that is driveable (but not long distances)?
About a month of rego left, so no great rush.

Ring Ezyscrap or one of those many places. They’ll even come and pick it up and leave you with a small sum of cash.
