I've just got my plate for a few weeks and someone offers me a NC Fairlane (91) at 5000 bucks, with around 200,000km. Is this car a good idea for a new driver, like me? I'm wondering whatz the difference between a Fairlane and a Fairmont Ghia besides the lengthened wheelbase and the exterior.
Mate, I got a DA LTD on the day I got my P's (which was also my 18th b-day, lucky me!) and I reckon I couldn'tve gotten a better ride. Get the Fairlane, you won't regret it, and at that price, how could you not resist! Provided nothing is wrong with it :)

Do you think that's a reasonable price?
BTW, do you have any suggestions for items that may easily go wrong? So that I can get a better look before I place the bet.
I have only ever had Fairlane's, yes the length does make parking bit more interesting, but if you can park it you can park about anything else out there. Doesn't really matter wether it's a 6 or 8, the long wheel base makes the ride something else to drive.
If you want to know the diff. between the 91 Fairlane and Fairmont Ghia, just the body (weight and size as mentioned before). Everything else is the same.
