I'm still considering buying it for parts, the Renault badge, steering wheel in decent condition etc. are probably worth a few hundred alone

As mentioned else where, numerous Renaults are for sale at Pickles in 2 Thursdays time. Alternatively, speak with the guys/gals at Access Recycling for logos, etc.

Probably a good option for badges and other bits and pieces.

Once again, what about 725?!? I believe 726 was with her out at Herron's Creek...I still want her...but can't get her for many reasons (storage wouldn't be an issue, just the cost and that). One day though...as long as she survives that long  :-\ (fingers crossed)

Dare I say the reason you maybe can't find it is because the person who bought it doesn't want to sell it?

Personally I wouldn't touch one of these,  the cost of any repairs to the turntable/drive train would (I assume) be astronomical die to their unique two axle drive.

According to this article, an artic was put up for sale on Facebook

http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/what-happens-to-an-action-bus-after-it-retires-20150207-131obd.html

At a guess, 716 (from out the back of EPIC) or 717 (wasnt it out near Yass or something?) based off the look of the land and where it is?

All I know, is it isn't 725 or any of the other MKIs sold off to wherever...

Who says houses are unaffordable?
