Up for auction is my much loved and trusted workhorse - Woody Guthrie (a.k.a. The Workbench).

There are times in life where you must let go of the things you hold so dear and close and this is one of those times for me and my dear Woody.

A sky-blue and wood grain '88 corolla of supreme character, Woody is a vehicle that will love you thrice times over but asks for nothing in return.

Yes there are quirks. But these quirks such as the boot not latching down, and the radio only playing AM, and the moustache on the steering wheel only serve to solidify the imperfect but lovable character of this motor vehicle.

Woody and I have shared precious memories over the past 3 and half years to which we have toured as far south as the Antarctic climate of Dunedin to the tropical rainforests of Whangarei. Never once letting me down on the road.

It is a sad time for me to say goodbye but i hope that Woody will continue to be loved and that is why it is up for a $1 reserve auction.

Woody needs a rusted hole in its exhaust to be welded and new brake pads and he will be ready to (legally) tour the great highways of New Zealand again.

I am only selling as i have now finished university and have a work vehicle to use which renders the ol' Workbench surplus to my requirements.

Please feel free to ask any questions and i am very open to discussion about the future of the trusty and reliable Wood Grain Machine....
