Agree, I honestly think even an idiot cop would of seen that you couldn't breath properly. Should of gave it ago and tell them that you can't promise nothing regarding completing test etc.

"paky cops" Pakistani born police or em I missing something. "buys cars" again in the immortal words of pauline hanson "please explain?"

yea why sell something you can make it to your own car in 4yrs....can do heaps of work in that time, i'd throw a turbo on it and do the sounds.
plus i recon the el xr6 is one of the best looking falcons out there

A) why refuse unless your a d***head drinking and driving..
B) speeding hey? how fast?
C) stiched you up hmmm, what did they plant a bag of coke or something...

in four years man, the EL's will be going for like 2grand for a upsec car, s**t even the FG's will be around the 5-6 thousand dollar mark give or take...

But i has been said, interior conversion, bushes, shocks, springs, etc etc are you going to let it run out of rego? then do the driveline up (mainly suspension brakes ball joints bearings etc) so in four years it will pass with flying colours...



how do u figure fgs will be 5-6k in four years? you can only just buy a ba (which are almost 8 years old now by the way) with over 300 000km's for that

Taxi's lol

bad figure but the FG Mk1 will be a cheap car to buy, In Dubbo I have seen 02 model BA's go for this kind of money with around the 180thou km mark...

I wouldn't spend too much on it, what if the world blows up with the 2012 theory?

Lol. I wouldn't sell it... I am in the process of parting with my EB (first car) and it's hard to see it go

Lol I wouldn't because if you spend money on it now, you won't benefit from it yet because he has no license til 2013 and the world will supposedly be dead by then lol.

Getting back on topic, if your missus is gonna be driving it in the next year or 2, why not put some dosh into it? It looks like a nice XR already, I'd probably do the brakes next, then maybe get a big cam and put 4.11s in it.
