Hey all, I'm new here. Found this site whilst searching google, thought I'd post up some pics of my new tank!
I bought her just 4 days ago for $600. Only has 113,000km on the dial, is like new inside and only a few minor dents on the outside.
I just got new tires on it yesterday and replaced the basics ( wipers, light globes etc. ).
She runs great but has a small oil leak which I will hopefully be fixing today.
I have a few mods in mind but nothing too major.
Anyways, here are some pics of her as she sits now.

Now that I've got a little bit of cash I'm going to continue this thread as I'm going to finally continue work on my car. :D

Update:

Over the last 3 weeks I've had a lot of work done to the Fairlane, a little by me and a lot by the mechanics.

Here's a list:

Front ball joints
Rear springs / shocks ( goodbye sls )
Ignition coil, leads, spark plugs, distributor
Full exhaust replacement
Both rear bushes
2 power window regulators
And some other things I can't think of at the moment.

I had her in for a roadie this morning and got her reg'd today.
She's driving like a dream!

Apart from the transmission which is slipping a little so a replacement is due soon.

Now I can get onto the fun stuff!
Any suggestions? I'll put some pics of how she sits as of today.

I'm considering upgrading from the 3 speed to a 4 speed auto. I've been driving a manual for the last few years so I'm enjoying the change!

Just wondering if anyone knows, if I wanted to upgrade from the 3 speed to a 4 speed auto, are there any other modifications or changes I'd need to make, or is it a straight swap?
