Sold my eb...what to get now?

Hey all,

well I said goodbye to my car....and now I am looking for another. I am in no rush, so I can wait. My dad offered me his au s2 xr6 vct for about 20k - its all stock and done 58k. But I dont want to spend that much on a car atm....I am only 20 and no one will insure me on that car (have already rung around) anyhow

What do you guys think I should do...there are heaps of EF and EL fairmont/ghias at the auctions and am considering one of these...but these are real hard to come by in manual, so I may have to settle for a gli or futura...as much as I love ea-ed's i couldnt get another one (already been through 2 and my brother just bought another!!!!)


What are the main differences between EF/EL fairmonts and ghias...is one better than the other...will one respond better to cam and exhaust upgrades?


Thanks

Brendan

The reason why EF/EL Fairmonts/Ghias are so rare in manual is because there aren't any!

What about a manual EF XR6? Would have to stretch the budget a bit further tho for one in good nic.

Well that could explain it!!

nah, dont really want an xr6...insurance is a problem...but a ghia with tickford engine could sound like a plan......

What auctions are the EF/L's floating around?

I'm after one later on and I hardly see any up for auction.
