Re: Ever since I was about 3-4 years old I've wanted an XC
Our club is always getting letters from people with XCs for sale, They usually want ridiculous money for them , Eg: $7000 - $10,000 (sometimes more for very low Kms) for stocker sedans. You shouldnt have to pay more then $5,000 for a top one though, shop around. The interest in XCs will start to climb (and probably the values) as in just over a years time, the first ones will be eligible for club rego. Exactly what colour XC you like? I reckon the XC colour choice was pretty bland. Only two that look great are the '78 update colours midnight blue (with dusk interior) and Emerald green (with jade interior) I have the latter! There was a cool orange in the updates and The Pine and lime was pretty funky too but the rest are pretty ordinary, I have lots of old XC brochres and opitions lists if you need any info let me know and I can scan it for you. My local wreckers is dismantalling an XC at the moment with 110,00Km on it. It is a late ,78 that has had a slight knock in the rear end. The rest of the car is dead straight and it has no rust anywhere. just so you know there are still good Xcs out there, lots which appear to be coming off the road because , sadly the owners are no longer able to drive them. You can tell the old peoples cars straight away. the paint looks brand new on them except for all the parking scrape and broken mirrors etc.
