with how much fuel is costing id just try n get one of them new v6s the quad thiny magiggy
but that would cost heaps
if you want a cheaper performance car it might be best to sell the holden and get something else
i mean sure the holden is a great car
but it was built as a all round family car
not really a performance car.
like the amount of work that hsv put into a car to make it better is a faaaaaaaair bit
considering that yes you could get a $20 000 skyline that would stil beat a gts :S

If I could get a GenIII for 11k I would be set. But I can't seem to find one, I only seem to be able to find one for 13-14. I live in SA.

My current car is dieing pretty quick, but I could hold out a few months, if absolutley necessory. Should I hold out for a 11k Gen3 like a VT II Exec 5.7?

I reckon you should.. 11k is a bit ambitious. But I've definitely seen a few for 12..

Instead of trying SS's etc. Maybe look for Executive GenIII's..

Go to Carsales and do a few searches. They're not very common, but you can find em..

They also made em in 6 speed manual.. Perfect sleeper..

and someone here is actually in the process of buying a GTS Series II 300KW :whistling

CarSalos only has 5.0L's and they are 12k to 14k for SA. And I have a lead on an SS for 13k.

I'd much rather a 10k VT II Exec 5.7, since i'd be changing everything the SS has changed on it, to more performance parts, but I just can't find them, and i'm starting to get desperate for a car.
