Re: eb/ed prices
Thanks for replies.
DANGERXY: where do you look for your cars- I normally use quokka, pickles, fowles, sunday times... any other suggestions? Are the collection of EBs you own on gas?
jg33gt: sorry to hear about your hassles with insurance.... they come across as your best friends when they want your money, but when you make a claim ...... they don't want to know you?
PSIWAGON: used car auctions are my port of call. Just after basic car so might look towards an ef/el.
Basically to cut a long story short I'm being killed at moment with fuel prices balanced against my lifestyle & income. So considering getting another Falcon on gas. After selling my car and getting another I don't want to run at a loss of more than $2000- I calculated with all factors remaining roughly the same, I could make that up in two years. Sad thing is I really like the EA I have at the moment, but I have to look towards the future as I'm nearly out of uni.
My choices are pretty much get a cheap multi-point stock EAII/B/D on gas and swap the bits out of my EA I want to keep, then flog that for 1000+ (I assume it's GT body kit which I don't want, and the fact it's running beautifully may keep the price up a tad).
Otherwise my other option is buy a cheap EF/EL from auction on gas and sell EA as a whole.
And my final option would be, buy a damaged EF/EL/AU from auction on gas and get my mate to put it back together, and sell EA as whole. A standard AU on gas would set me back probably $4500.
Next car on gas will see me through until I have enough money to buy something new outright. And I want a sleeper. Suggestions/comments/criticism?
