this is the end (for now)

well guys, due to my financial situation at this point in time, i must sell the el, and buy a shitter thats cheap to run and insure,

i cant even afford to buy a new brake light bulb with the way things are going, and im sick and tired of struggling, not being able to go out with my friends, or even go on a ling drive...its so crap

so ocne my el is sold ill be looking for anything thats cheap, ive found a vn for cheap with minor front damage that would be nice, but im worried about petrol costs in those cars,

anyone got any sugestions? id even concider a cheap 5spd ea on gas...but i dont see me finding one in ok condition for a reasonable price

if anyone is interested in my el, im after $8000 for it!

ill still be around on the forums, and one day ill be back in a decent falcon, just gotta get out of this slump im in!

Re: this is the end (for now)

Sorry to learn of your woes, I can certainly relate to them. My KF Laser has given a year of good service and only cost me $2k initially, but it seems even today they cost heaps more than I paid, so I don't know what else to recommend...

Re: this is the end (for now)

possibly cheaper fuel wise.. but ea's are getting old now. might spend a bit on maintenance.

Re: this is the end (for now)

Maintenance only costs serious money if you pay other people to do your work.

Re: this is the end (for now)

this is true.. but it would still be nicer to pay a bit more for petrol to have a nicer newer car with less problems. but i guess he is after the money from selling the el.
