Having worked in the same space as Pickles in Newcastle, I can tell you that $5k will get you anything from EB-EL. If you are willing to hold out to find the "perfect bargain", you may get supremely lucky! I have seen plenty of EF's going for around $5k, and in one instance, an EF Fairmont with 210,000km (and in pretty reasonable condition!), went for $5,500.
Take your time, keep an eye on the auction houses websites to see what's coming up, and don't rush things. You WILL get a bargain if you are willing to be dilligent.
