Location: Inner suburbs, Melbourne

Ford
Falcon, Fairlane, Fairmont
$1500-4000, probably 1992-96, most preferably under 230,000K
not asking for a seller but throw at me suggestions for models, years etc.

I wont be able to make any/many* engine mods since P laws no tubro's all that, but still very interested in performance.

Im going to start saving from pretty much scratch as of 15th Jan next year and got until August 31st when im 18, so hopefully if i get my family to help a bit then im looking at what i said 2-4G, so I need to start thinking first car and it will inspire me to work more!

Any Help/suggestions very much apreciated! thanks
Alex

my mother wants me to get something safe -> Incase im in an accident, i have 4-5 g in mind for first car she thinks higher.

if i picked up a car for around 5G or even less, like 1500 as you said which i would have no problem with as long as it was sturdy, more money for my "Fully Sick" Sound sytem which is gonna cost heaps! (and alarm system and iron grills on the window)

I guess u should stop driving around like a D-head or better start saving for another car after u smash that one. Or god forbid maybe some medical bills.
:shock:

Find a car which has low km's and has airbags, abs, and has minimal wear and tear. If it was me, ill buy another EL.
Ef -el parts interchange. Cheaper to buy parts.
