Ok , a quick outline.....................
A mate purchased a 71 Corvette from a ( large ) card yard in Sydney and bought it site unseen and had it shipped down here. The car was sold with reg and roadworthy , both from NSW.
When the car arrived , it had been registered the previous day in Sydney , yet had a number of items that were not roadworthy.....speedo broken , no handbrake , couple of other little things.
The next day , his missus drove it to get some petrol and was involved in an accident. The other driver was insured , so no problem with repairs. It is currently at a repair shop.
The car yard has been contacted in regards to the roadworthy , which was obviously dodgy and advised that they will be paying all associated costs to get it RWC in the state of Victoria. This they have verbally agreed to.
The repairer has now rang my mate and said the car is ****ed , the frame has bad rust in it. I havent seen it , but can only go on the repairers description , which was " get rid of it to someone while you can ".
Although we have the car yard by the balls in regards to a false roadworthy , what is the law in NSW in regards to rust and a roadworthy certificate ?
Any help appreciated , particuarly from anyone in the mechanical trade in NSW that is involved with RWC checks
