Re: Whats next???

Curtis's account should be fixed soon.

I guess with 5k you'd have to make up your mind what you want from it first. 5k is a lot of cash but it can go all to quick.

Preformance mods might include 5 speed conversion engine work, LSD diff maybe?
Looks might be a nice tint job, a set of wheels things like that. Theres a lot you can do. I suggest looking at other peoples cars/other models of falcons and deciding what you want.

Re: Whats next???

I think you're on the money with the five speed, shorter LSD diff, extractors, an alarm and I would add slotted (or cross-drilled if it tickles your fancy) brakes all round.
