what should i do?

hey,

i have a 94 falcon with a shot gearbox (slipping very badly and doesnt have much longer left). i am looking at buying another car around the 10-12k mark, probably a little car. would it be worth spending maybe 4-5k and fixing my car up? ie, convert to a manual gearbox, maybe put the car on dual fuel and other bits and pieces.. id say the motor might be wearing thin also, the car is pretty gutless these days.

the headgasket blew around 3 months ago and i got that fixed up just enough to keep me running.

would apreciate some advice, thanks guys

it costs around 2g to get converteted to manual (rough est) .
your engine might be gutless for alot of reasons 1 that comes to mind is that the exhaust has shot through.
but if u get a small car give it 200k before motor says by by.
also keep in mind that its alot easier to source spare parts for falcons than it is for small jap cars.

but all up if u have 10g sitting about u could get your ed going real good and look good as well

my 2c
cheers

Some people have had success pulling recently rebuild autos from Pick A Part. It may be worth a thought.
