Question Life after E - Series

I am interested in seeing what you people plan on buying after you (for whatever reason) get rid of your E - Series cars and upgrade. Personally I love my EF Ghia but I do have my eye on those new BA Fairlane G220s.

Saw one at the lights today - damn! it looked the goods. This one was black with the azzuro style rims and looked a day old. I was mentally picturing what i would do to it, lowering, tint and exhaust to hear that V8 rumble just to start with! Would look damn nice I reckon.

The Fairlane G220 is 60k new so I may have to wait 3 or 4 years before I can get one at a decent price! So I am aiming to get one of these cars in a few years time if they are cheaper than an XR6T 2nd hand.

What about the rest of you?

Re: Life after E - Series

I think I might be keeping my EF for a while now

I would love another XE, and make it into a Dick Johnson Greens-Tuff replica, with the 19x12 rear wheels and monster Group C flares. Or a BA XR8 or Ghia or a Pursuit 290 ute or maybe a G220, same style as you said, Black, lowered, big chrome 19" wheels, dark tint and a big exhaust.

I also have been thinking of getting a Silvia or a 180SX, i've never owned a turbo, a smaller car, a 4 cyl or a jap car.

Re: Life after E - Series

The next car after the EA won't be a huge step up, probably something like a VS or a AU. The (very) longterm goal will be to own something like a 540i :s6:

Re: Life after E - Series

Well my next car will either be an SL600 or an S600L Merc. mmmmmm twin turbo V12. Now in the unlikly occourance i cant find $379k under my pillow tomorrow, a BA LTD would be my next pick. Vortech charger and 400kw at the treads is the way to be. Dumped, 19's fully pimped out.

Negating that, something with ultra class. Say a convertable Rolls, or some Late 50's yank tank (Chev, thunderbird) or 60's Yank sports car (mustang, vette, GT40)

Ultimatly

S600L (just to do long distances in)
GT40 (for fanging arround)
Dumped+supercharged Yank lowrider (for cruising)

well for now,

EAII (for leaking main seal and using to much fuel)

Re: Life after E - Series

Didn't know we had so many LWB lovers here! Myself, I am constantly tossing up this very idea in the air... Smaller car like a Focus Zetec in black (turbo it = mmmm!). Maybe an AU II/III Ghia or XR... Even contemplating the idea of a... I dunno if I can say this, VW Golf VR6!

Long-term it's an M5!
