My Plans. (or should I say dreams)

Hi all

As most of you know my car currently has only 5 cylinders. Now i have 2 choices here 1. I can repair it and keep driving it 2. buy a another car and take the girl off the road and fix her properly.

Now at the moment I am seriously looking at an XB Fairmont on gas with roady for $1500

If I do take her off the road it will be for a while. Here is my wish list for her.

ED XR6 motor (stock)
Manual conversion
EB Ghia full leather interior
New Headlights and Clear Indicators
All panel damage repaired
ED XR6 lip spoiler
New Alloys (unknown what type yet)
EB sunroof
EB GT S/Wheel

No so far I have looked at a few wrecked ED XR6's and they are roughly worth about 2-4 grand depending on how badly damaged they are.

What are you sugestions
