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.
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.
95 EF Fairmont 5.0 - Heritage Green - 4 Speed auto with AU S5 - 3.23LSD - 17x8" LWT Wheels - King Superlows - 76mm Cobra MAF - 65mm throttle - BPT Underdrive Pulley Kit - 3" Mandrel-bent Lukey exhaust - Tinted Windows - MP3 CD player - White faced dials.
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)
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)
Ive been described as a vault of usless random knowledge.
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!
