How is this for a bargain!

I just put a deposit on my next car. Its a white 1992 EB gli, the body is practically perfect. It comes with a RWC and a new alternator in perfect running condition and i can pick it up next week. IT has no rego but is on LPG.

I paid..wait for it---$1500.

Does this sound cheap to you guys?

This also means I probably have to sell my 351 which makes me sad : (

Thumbs up Re: How is this for a bargain!

If it has no rego, then you'll have to present a RWC (no older than 28 days) when registering it. If this is what you already have, then I would say you have a bargain! Get a compression test done if you can.

Wheels: 17" Series 1 XR
Exhaust: VCT with no resonators & 3" mandrel from mufflers back, dump pipe
Pacemaker headers (Waste of money).
Air Intake: T-Series, K&N Filter.
Brakes: Calipers painted red, DBA slotted rotors & Lucas pads.
Windows: Tinted.
Gearstick: Shortened.
Fuel: Dual Fuel.
Dyno: 143 rwKw (Dynodynamics - shootout mode).
Heathcote: 15.87 @ 89.1 Mph.

Re: How is this for a bargain!

Is it straight gas? Series 1 or 2??

I presume the XE fell through?

Re: How is this for a bargain!

Its a series 2, its duel fuel. it is coming with a RWC too, I pick it up on wednesday all ready to get registered.
The XE was still okay but for the same price the EB was heaps better. I will cut my losses with the XF and probably wreck it after the drag meet in may.

Thanks guys

Re: How is this for a bargain!

I would like one but I didnt particularly want one and at that price I wont be picky. I will get some pics up as soon as I pick it up. I have to go through all those niggly new car mods like tinting the windows, reinstallation of stereo,lowering it and putting my wheels on it. It is dead stock now. then onto the process of taking the turbo off my bedroom floor and putting it on the car. I cant wait till that day comes.

Re: How is this for a bargain!

It looks exactly like this now minus the wheels and including the pin stripe.

cool Re: How is this for a bargain!

It's got the clear indicators on the headlights - nice! Overall looks very clean and good. Good stuff - AU rims make it look beautiful!
