If you are keen on buying one and doing it up then you should really look to spend at least $1000 on buying the car. Its alot less trouble and often leads to be cheaper in the long run if you buy a more expensive car with less rust than if you buy a cheaper car full of rust and bog.

And take it from me, you just arent cool unless you have an RS2000.... these beasts just ooze style. :wnc:

Yer i spose it may be a better i dea but i was look at the car as a long term projec. I can get paint jobs and panel beating for almost free so the y aint a worry. Any way thanx for the advice.

When you buy one make sure the c piller aint stuffed like the inner metel bit that sticks to the outer metel aint rusted. just got one fixed(drip rail wobbled still to be fixed) and found out today that the other side is lil stuffed GRR oh and make sure the heater hump aint screwed mine is rooted and a lil bit of the fire wall is stuffed.

doesnt matter on the cost just becuase it costs more doesnt mean under the paint is gonna be good. i knew someone who got a escort for 1500 and both c pillers were bogged up.
