biggrin Soon to own a Ford. Woo Hoo

I went and looked at a 96 EF Ford Futura today for my first car. It has 215,000 kms but thats mainly travelling. It has a new gearbox, new front rotors, new battery and a nice set of mag wheels. The guy had 8,900 on the price but realised it was too high and told me he'll accept 7,700. I took it for a test drive and the car feels really smooth, I did hear some sqeaking with the front suspension but i hear alot of fords with that problem. So I can get the money out of the bank on monday and it may be mine then.

Thanks all
