That Ford collection is awesum...im sorry to say that from now on all shipments of Vivas from NZ is banned due militant NZ Viva owners wishing to protect their natural resources..however..i will be selling timeshares in the Viva la Vida Resort....

My HC has finally emerged from storage..prepping her for a Xmas warrant..
