if you have beef it up-raptor blower and with the change buy bhp shares to off set the loan,wait about 10 years and they will tripple in value,your dividends and tax rebates will almost pay for the loan.

Hey seeing as though you didn't ask for financial advice - I won't offer any. I would look at a mild 347 stroker GT40P heads etc....with a streetable blower hanging off the side, as well as decent suspension if you haven't already got some

Honestly.... If you must take the loan, here's what I'd consider doing.

Spent up on a raptor charger kit for it, and leave it at that. It should cost a bit over half the loan you were going to get. Next, I'd look at investing the rest of the money, either shares like a blue chip such as the suggested BHP, or a comsec account. It won't earn as much interest as you pay on the loan, but it will earn some, and you could write off some of the interest on the loan as "investing costs".

You will end up with an investment & a decent credit rating at the end of it, and a supercharged v8 as well.

Cheers

ToranaGuy

Well I dunno.
What id ask would probably be kicked around as unreasonable.
10 to 15 Grand would be amazing. But theres nothing like mine out there I could compare selling prices too, so yeah.
What kinda offer would you make seriously?

____________

On another note, what ive been thinking about and have priced up.
AU 220 motor and trans bolted wired in and running $3500
Trans work, B&M shifter, shift kit full maual etc reverse pattern 2500 Stall converter $1500
Diff is done already 3.91 LSD.
White line sway bars and rear suspension $750

Total = $5750. (motors only done 80,000kms, came out of a series 3)

The total ive added up including the above is 12G's.

Tint, rechroming the wheels, reupholstering the seats, boot install etc. with about 4 grand to repay my mum and grandpa for some stuff.

So, I could go for just the engine and trans work for now as my engine is getting old and the trans is staring to clunk, and i could do the rest bit by bit as I save up myself.

So have the original loan, bout $7000 say, which aint tooooooo bad.

Sooooo many choices though. :(
