SAM Toyota Lite Ace van for sale $1,100 or nearest offer
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: donations to SAM

The moment of truth has arrived, the repairs are done and the new pink slip has been issued. And although our work vehicle would be very useful in the lead up to the federal election, market stalls for environmental education and to report the news budget and lifestyle concerns mean we have decided to go the bicycle unless a white knight turns up with $700 for the on road costs (insurance and govt charges).

Here are the details for sale of the van:

For sale  $1,100 ONO, Toyota Liteace 1990


Rego expired 4th July 07, see new pink slip, 2 seater, 4 cylinder, great fuel economy, manual, 5 speed. Very handy space. Goes well. Heavy duty battery, radio cassette, good tread + 3 spare tyres. Steering lock. New L/R tie rod, rack ends.  Have to sell - job/bicycle change.



Call Tom 0410 558838




Postscript #1 19th July 07 - our new bike trailer, original design. Not quite a Hills Hoist but we still feel quite proud. It's all about the attachment method to the rear of the bike that counts.





Patent pending (not): Take 2 old bikes, 2 x 20 cm bolts, power drill, 4 big U bolts, 3 little U bolts, a light metal pole, 3 lengths of wood, 2 bright coloured bread crates. And 4 days of stuffing around trial and error in a shed.



Postscript #2 25th July 2007

Well it looks like some guardian angels have chipped in to keep us mobile in the months up to the federal election so will be registering the van after all:


Carol Seckers -$50

Jill Redoood - $200

Bob Walshe - $500

Terry Cutcliffe- $300 in return for 2 days building work for NAIDOC day) at the Addison Rd Gallery - see the new outdoor veranda there.


Assuming cheques all clear which we do it's still lots of cycling but extra capacity with the van also, like this recent electioneering mission with stickers in the seat of Wentworth 1st August 2007

Donations for SAM website to keep posting original independent media
Mood:  hungry
Topic: donations to SAM

If you read a story and appreciate the content why not make a donation to keep the Sydney Alternative Media website away from

D-E-A-T-H ?

The editor/owner Tom McLoughlin is independent of all political parties, strongly opinionated and a voracious critic and consumer of little and big media like this photo of the exhausted Yangtze near Chongqing taken this year after a long long drought:

Sometimes we even break stories like the cavenous sandmine at Tinda Creek which feeds into the Wollemi Blue Moutains World Heritage Area:

On the 3rd of each month we will count our hit rate, which continues to grow, and report the figure the next day along with donations received either anonymous or by name. (Hit rate for March was 7,600 and 11,400 for April with 3 days to go).

Send cheques or money orders to Sydney Alternative Media website C/- ARC, 142 Addison Rd Marrickville 2204 or email for more details to

We are also happy to report expenditure of this micro news service which is totally in the red, and non profit, and we imagine will stay that way forever.
