what would be your next car if...

...your car got stolen or whatever, and you got an insurance payout?

mine would be a black V8 NF/NL Fairlane Ghia/DF/DL LTD. i'd swap the grill right away for an EL Fairmont one, lower it about 1.5" front and 2" rear, fit 18" chrome billets and do the exhaust. the ultimate luxo-barge! :)

Well if it was right now, and I had to get something right now, something to tide me over until Barra, I would have to say an R33 GTS-T Type M. On road for under $20k. Pocket the change, keep for a few months, and drive it into the ground.

Oh, I just read the precondition, insurance payout. Well if that's the case, I would get a 5 speed EB2 or ED XR6 and work the fluck out of it.

if the xr6 went walkies, i would probably wait until AV. then either jump on an au3 xr8 super bargain or get an av.

if the fiesta went walkies...there isnt a great deal i could do with a grand, but would like something different again. there was an escort ute advertised over here....unreg but worth athought....
