Hatchie fixed and needed testing

Post by RSR 555 » Sun Feb 16, 2014 6:23 pm

So we got the flywheel and clutch fixed in Hatchie, so we needed to test it out, so off to the beach we go :)

the canary yellow WRX converted MY is a wagon. :)

But I can see how one might think it is a hatch as the rear view of the car is blocked

LOL is RSR really that portly :)

Well you're kinda right.. there is a second hatch but it's also blue and its going anywhere in a hurry (it's pretty much a shell) but this yellow wagon (Honeycomb) is running WRX running gear. The guy that did the conversion should not be allowed to do any more :( it is something I show people how not to do a conversion.

Thanks Matt. Would have been good to have a ute there too but trying to get one of them these days.. guess we'll just have to wait till Jayson has his Brumby completed :)

hahaha.. yeah.. love how they see them coming then quickly tell their mates to look at them and you see them just about snap their necks trying to see us. I can't believe how many waves and thumbs-ups we get when we take the old girls out.

There was even a third hatch too but unfortunately only for a very short period. I remember Jay Vidler saw one driving along, followed it home, and convinced the old guy to sell it to him. I think it was fully registered and driving but quite rusty.
The tragedy happened when Jay called a wreck removal service to come and collect a stripped wrecked wagon he had. They came and did that....but also took it upon themselves to take his Hatch too - which was right up the driveway, under a car port, with locked doors.

When he found the car missing he called them, and found out that it had been taken to their yard, and crushed under several other cars. Unsavagable, but I think he managed to take the rear bumper off it to keep as a spare for Hatchie.

Brings a tear to my eye.

Yeah.. I've heard that story of Jay's hatch many years ago.. such a shame but really don't understand how they could remove it with going to that much trouble.

I'd love to have my hatch on the road but there's a few more projects in the line up before that happens.. plus you never know.. someone that owns one might buy it off me one day??

Don't worry Paul, I saw immediately there was one hatch, one wagon - so obvious. Sounds like you need to challenge TOONGA to a BMI show and tell !

If I was to go by the BMI scale I would be 7 foot tall, I'm pretty sure Paul would be around 6'10" :)

Yeah.. it is to those that have seen the yellow beast around but I can see how you could mistake it for a hatch.

No need to challenge.. he wins every time

What happened to the flywheel and clutch? Did Hatchie do a Ruby Scoo?
