Hello

G'day, I made an earlier post i think it failed. Any way just joined the EA-EL club and thought i'd say hi. I just bought my first car and it is a 1988 Falcon S with a CFi engine. It had only 159000 clicks and for $4000 i think it was a steal, what do u guys think?

Welcome aboard,

With EA's price really depends on the condition and km's. 159k is stuff all for an EA, and if it is in good condition, you got a good deal. Also, with the single older owner, you know it has generally been well looked after.

Also look through these and the engine forums, there are plenty of easy and cheap mods around that have a decent results. Enjoy.
