Was just wondering if anyone in ACT still has my old Dato?

My Dad was a mechanic (now retired) and when i was starting Uni he bought a 1200 from a friend. Needing a car, he agreed to lend me the 1200 to drive to Uni and around. I loved the 1200 so much I kept driving it for years until i went OS. On my return I found that Dad still had the 1200 after moving to Canberra. He then sold it to a "young fellow" in the late 1990s i think. Dad told me that just after he sold it the 1200 blew a head gasket (no idea how it did that!!!) and he felt really bad about it so he replaced the head gasket for free for the new owner. It was a white totally stock 1200 and it was a terrific little car.
Sold by an old guy (Dad) in Gowrie ACT.
Did you buy it and have you still got it??? Just curious if it is still going strong???

Sedan..4 door...no idea of rego but I will try and find out.

I reckon if you bought it and the head gasket went and the previous old guy owner fixed it for you then that's gotta be it (assuming it is still with the same owner)....hmmmm.

I know a couple of white 1200 sedans. There's a white one owned by a guy who came and looked at my 120y. Cant remember his name, just that he was on crutches lol. Another less neat one with "Lukey" written on the front guards.
