Re: XB Fairmont Coupe on Ebay

Try getting a good xb gt for under 15 thousand. Ive been looking on all the car sites and publications and havent seen a single xbgt for less than 15,000 in good condition.

So, if this car is ok i think 8k is reasonable

Re: XB Fairmont Coupe on Ebay

at 8k reserve is NOT met, so he wants more. it's just a fairmont with options.
once again what it's worth to you may not be worth to me, like that cobra in the other thread. yes it is worth 20k (if it proved to be clean) to me but maybe not to someone else.

Remember (no offence GT owners) a GT coupe is just a coupe with more bits. At $15K plus, your paying for the privelegy of having an original GT, not always quality or condition. Any coupe in good unmolested condition is well worth $8K or there abouts IMHO. It could be the difference between a good car or a lot of money on rust repair, unkept interiors, floogged mechanicals etc...... When I was shopping around 12 months to 2 year ago I found $6K was a good (minimum) mark for the difference between a good condition (non-GT) coupe and somethig that was full of rust or bog, and I looked at plenty of cars! There were also plenty of overpriced rust buckets.

On the plains of hesitation bleached the bones of countless millions.......

Re: XB Fairmont Coupe on Ebay

True enough.

But I dont go in for all the what its worth for you etc etc.

A car is worth a certain amount judged by what else is available in the market place at any given time.

A car can start out worth ten thousand, and in time as less models become available for sale the price will go up as less examples of the model are around. Then there is differing price points for condition etc.

A car is worth what someone will pay, but my point is the owner will see it differently, the car is worth what it is worth when compared against the rest of the cars the same as it.

nope it's not just a coupe, it's a GT coupe. different numbers, mate. what your saying is it's just a tarted up falcon, i have to disagree.
spend 15k doing up a fairmont, end result is you probably won't get your money back. spend that same 15k on the GT you probably will. weird, hey?

Re: XB Fairmont Coupe on Ebay

I'd agree with Coupe cruiser, you'll be a lucky man if you can find a GT under 15K that doesn't need a LOT of work unless you are very lucky. As for other Coupes, there really isn't a lot out there worth picking up under 8 grand, I had the similar joy of trying to find a half decent one in Vic for months until I found two out in the country hiding away!
