I'd add an extra couple of grand because it has the Essendon Number Plate surround.
That's why he should knock off a few grand! :p

All the best with the sale JC.

Ok JC where's the V8 you're eyeing off?
I think it'll go for around $23,000 but as with all sales it's based on buyer demand and can at times require a bit of a wait.

At the moment I am just "looking" at EF/EL XR8 Or Fairmont Ghias. Do not really have a particular one chosen, but there seems to be plenty of them around.

JC that is a nice looking rig, the only thing i think would benefit you when trying to sell would be the original spoiler if you still have it. That way the new owner could have the option to change it.

Anyways good luck.

Thanks XTs220 (and also Anthony P for that generous, but humourous, offer); I've thought about getting the original spoiler back - AU1SIXA,- how about it? lol

Mate thats a good price for a nice car. So no More Galaxy hey. Why get rid of her mate. You just want a v8 I guess. If you would liek to swap spoilers go ahead im not to worried.

Thats a good price and going on that it still means I may not lose too much on mine, when it goes... which Im in 2 minds about at the moment

Good luck with it.

Sorry to fill ya ad with meaningless crap... and my 2 cents worth is go the EL.. I rekon they are tops.

XTS220 - we got it second hand. It belonged to a restaurant owner prior to that (the ex-husband of a family friend). He did a lot of the colour coding work to the body, I have done the interior and underbonnet. It has always been a Canberra car and has had every service as per the schedule (plus all the other work I've done to it).

cArSiK - I will get a shot of both tonight.

AU1SIXA - was just kidding about the spoiler swap.

Cubey - no worries mate. I would also like an EL, but it will depend on price! (I'd really like to buy Mr Sparkles car, plus Neds GT rims (or Kerry's FBT rims), but I think it's all out of the question).

Hey JC I was just wondering if you got any benefit out of putting extractors on your VCT? I heard alot of poeple havn't gained any power, and in some cases lost power. Just wondering if you noticed any performance difference or if you dynoed it and got any more power?

Power dropped around 1rwkw, but peak power is now at 4500 rpm instead of 5000, and torque is up by around 10%, peaking at around 2800rpm instead of 3500. It almost feels like an 8 over 2500rpm - almost, but not quite!
