An XD with no power steering. You'll really learn how to drive/park and you'll be safe cos it's a tank.

Should defintely be looking at an EF/EL Fairmont. Both will take a Fairlane grille and driving lights which is a bonus.

Should have a few dollars left over for wheels/lowering/exhaust etc

But as with all e-series, make sure the headgasket isnt shot when checking out the car, or even enquire if the headgasket has been replaced which will save you alot of $$$ in the future

yeh since i wont be able to make any major engine mods cos of the laws im definarly going to spend money on making my car look/handle better, exhust, lowering and wheels is exactly what im going to do - i dont know the benifits of having a body kit i Dont think its worth while unless im going to the track? which i probably wont on my first car i dont know

I think ull find that body kit isn't like the V8 super cars ones it just makes the car look better. The car that i sent ya has a few pics in there one with no kit one with stock ford kit and one with a custom kit.
