I have paid a deposit on the car and it will most likely be mine by tuesday

its a 1990 telsar Ghia, Red, all electrics, 159,000kms very very clean inside and out....and it runs very nicely....

its only got the standard alloys, and i am really NOT a fan of them at all....so something will have to be done in that department....

i started a thread in the market place asking if anyone had a set of the TX5 polished rims from the 89-90 series....but no one seems to....or even know where i can get em....NZ said to get on the laser forum....but i cant find it and he didnt know where it was....so if someone can help me out....id really appreciate it...

ill try to get some pics once ive got the car.....but i have to get a digital cam from ma dads work

Turbo or not?

I thought you would have gone an E series from your posts in the 4sale threads.

Hope you enjoy FWD's.
which posts are those??

i was looking for an e series for a while...but didnt really see anythin that good for a nice price....and the guy that was getting me 1 at trade price...well they had 2 there...and they were shockers....so its the tx5 for now...if i dont end up gettin it...i may look for another tx5...or go back to e series

and its non turbo

I think theres a 5 Speed manual EF GLi For sale at Car city in Ringwood. I test drove it the day I bought mine, Dual Fuel and all that stuff, not a bad car. 6 weeks on and as far as i know its still for sale for about $6500.

It could be a good or a bad thing...... If your telstar falls through Then its worth a look. if not, You got yaself a Nice new Mazda that was never a Ford, Or a nice new Ford that was never a Mazda... Hmmm..... Whatever

As for your 'old man' Rims... Make a feature outta them!! Always keep the rims sparkling and always doused in tyre black!! HAHA trust me dude: I had ED 'Classic' 15" Rims for about 5 weeks, Its really no big deal

;) Anyways, Congrats man! Having a new car is a great feeling!

Good news, I bet you're excited! My ex has about the same amount of cash to spend. I suggested a Telstar TX5 and she is pretty keen. Is the 1990 model the more squarer shape?

im not sure about squarer....my mate has the 89 model....and the only differences i can see (without having seen them together) are different tail lights and badging....and a slightly different grill

for some reason i like the old models of the TX5's more than the new ones such as the 89's n 90's, imo they look better than the newer ones when done up..
