$7700 is a great price.... private sale, or dealer?

your mod list is pretty much all i would do to it as well.... just a sweet sounding exhaust, lowered with nice rims, a perfect cruiser !!

oh, then there would be 4.11 diff with LSD and..... :)

I picked her up privately. Its a really nice and comfy car to drive. The speed sensitive steering is amazing. The only down side is is that it is stock. I had my blue EF at a stage where i was happy (pity its getting on with 260k klms) so now i got to try and get rid of it. Details in sig if anyone is interested???

If anyone has some ideas or wants to do a nice photoshop (modded or unmodded) that would be very much appreciated......fordfairmont..... :roll:

Nice pick up!! I got a thing for those fairlanes, they got class..

A guy across the road from where i used to work was selling one for $5500, completely stock had a few scratches and a few little dents and had almost 250,000kms lol, so i reckon you got that for bargain.

Id be doing exactly what your planning to do, bigger set of rims, lower it but not too much lol, twin exhaust and limo tints :wink:

You'll need 20"s to look respectable.
SSL's.
Limo tint
Extractors, twin 2 1/4 with X pipe
Mild cam
High stall, trans cooler
-mudflaps.

Should do for a while.

Hey all,

Been a while but i thought i should update it a bit. Got a new set of 19s delivered on thurs, Chucked em on as soon as i got home. They are 19" ANZ 5+5s. They came with 245/35 rubber and lock nuts/wheels nuts delivered for $1780. I am extremly impressed with them, and yes i know it needs to be lowered.

Anyways enjoy..........

I think they are great. Still have yet to see another car on the road that has em, so its always good to go for something different111
