the journey 400km from here...and who the hell is abg kamal!

Recall back the journey i had while searching for the X80..after a few phone call conversation i had with the owner..i decided to check it was on 7th June 08(it was a few days after the insane petrol hike rm2.70)..with a help of my buddy (special thanks to Iz for spending ur time and lending ur car to me) i hitch his ride to go the place 400KM from my hometown..when arrived,we meet up with koopang first(he is around town),then off to the place of where the chaser is..Upon arrival there no sign of the owner but the car is there,we talk to the other taxi owner asking where is this person with the name of "Abg Kamal"..(call him but no answer)they told us that he might still be at home..with the help of "Abg Din",we taxi ride to "Abg Kamal" house..the bugger is at home,sleeping...he said that he's been working late..its okay i we sitted at the chair in front of his house..we begin discussing about the Chaser X80..we know that he wanted to sell the car for only rm4k..but then the word "tapi..sebenarnya" came out of his mouth...koopang and i starting giving this weird look..

first problem,the car still got debt to the credit company..not much..around rm3K (that make the total of rm7K)..
second,we need to find out first if the credit company is still exist,becoz if not,the name in the pink slip cant be change and the car status will still be "Perdagangan" instead of "Persendirian"..
third,we need to cancel the "taxi permit" on the car by turn out this "Abg Kamal" is not the owner as stated in the pink slip..he is only a driver for the make things worst he said the owner is a Gangster,only he can deal with him..

why u cant tell me this on the phone!!...i travel from Kajang to kuantan,spend almost RM3++ on fuel,toll,and food just to hear this crap!!...

i try to think positive at the moment..then we went back to the taxi stand,to inspect the car..after that took a copy of the pink slip..and said "we'll try to find the credit company first.if anything we'll let u know"

uuuuu frameless....

Next stop to Kemaman,Terengganu to continue our search..stop to have lunch first and off to kemaman taxi stand...we ask the uncle taxi there if they got X80..after asking his fellow taxi-an and made a few phone call to kuala terengganu taxi stand...there was no luck...but still,the uncle offer me a crown,cedric and bluebird instead hahaha...

me and koopang at kemaman..patiently awaits

dispointed again,we went back to kuantan,while otw we make a quick stop cherating,to buy "keropok lekor"...then go to Teluk Chempedak,for sight seeing of the beach and dinner...and finally continue the journey back home...

2 days after that i decided to check out the credit company which located in KL,i was really having a hard time looking for that place + it was a pain in the arse haha...been searching for almost a whole day till i finally found it...turns out the company bankrup 3years ago...another dead end...

a week after the crazy journey,i got a call from "abg kamal"asking me if im still interested on buying the car coz if not there are someone else willing to buy the car,and i said its okay if the car got another buyer...i already lost interest on the car considering the problem with the documentation...and i dont care if its frameless or not....i got way too much issue to deal with that is one of my story and exprience on my road to find a X8...... if u said im not looking hard enough ur dead wrong hahahha
