Hi All,
Has anyone seen this one?
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/FORD-FALCON-XR8- ... 0029538675

It seems to have been on there for over a month, maybe 2 months in fact. It seems like quite a tidy unit with low Ks but no one has snapped it up yet. Are they not worth much more than $10k? In WA you'd be struggling to find something like this for less than 12k. Would there maybe be something wrong with it? The guy said he's had it for less than 12 months but bought it off a one owner...

I think this is a bloke from AFF. he has been selling it for a while on there too. not a bad price, but unnfortunatly people are steering clear of the 8's cause of the juice factor. It is def a buyers market at the moment, and if i were in the hunt for a 8, there are some real bargins out there ATM.

Mine has lower Ks than that and its a manual. Over a year ago I paid $17400.

Over east they are about $3000-$4000 cheaper.
It is a great price for it but its an auto.

thanks guys,
I thought that might be the case - people avoiding the V8s because of the fuel price. (not that a 6 is really THAT much more efficient)
