Suggestion??? Equivelant Ford vs VR GTS
Ok i'll hand this over to our panel of experts here. But before i continue please don't make this a Holden vs Ford bashing thread.
Ok i've been talking to a guy who's interested in a VR Commodore GTS 94-95 model. Average national price for the vehicle sold privately for a 95 model is $19,990 - $23,800 and for a 94 model $18,500 - 22,400.
Now the specs the VR GTS had the 5.7L stroker engine making 215kw and came in an Auto or 6 speed manual with a hydratrak diff.
Ok this person wants bang for your bucks, so that means he is prepared to buy an equivelant Ford for the same money if it delivers the same acceleration and power.
I think this is a tough one as i don't think there was a Ford that it equivelant. So can anyone suggest a Falcon base vehicle that can match the VR GTS performance for the same money.
My suggestions are: EL2 XR8, EB GT, SVO 215i XR8(though rare).
