Hey all finally got my new car.
I was looking for an xr8 but found out couldnt insure one! :(
Anyway I ended up getting a 10/97 EL Ford Fairmont.

Electric sunroof,full leather interior,stacker and all the normal extras!!!
Also was a one owner with full servive history!!!
And is heritage green.
Now to start mods...................................................................
18inch chrome wheels

Nice exhaust
subs
15% tinted windows
Will be getting done shortly.

I'd say i6 since he couldn't get insurance for the V8.

Sounds like ^Jase^'s car. It's very nice 8-) Though I believe he's having trouble at the moment with this shortage of Premium fuel, since his car pings on regular! :mrgreen:

No, he said he couldnt insure an XR8 (HP vehicle according to insurance co's.)
Where as a ghia with v8 isnt considered HP like the XR8.
Im told its cheaper to insure a v8 fairmont ghia than an XR6 with racv.

Either way its a great sounding car, and pics pics pics :)

Yeah its only a six. But it drives real nice and it doesnt feel that much slower than my old car ( XH ute man, 14.8 1/4 mile ).
Ill start to modify it this week.
And got it for $9000.
And for pics, I dont know how to post them up.

On a non-ghia Fairmont was leather an extra??? Does any body know how rare or common it is to find a fairmont non-ghia with leather?
