    I've come across a series1 Landrover for $900 I might go look at.
    Not sure how much time/money it will cost me to convert into $30k desirable vehicle. But surely not a quarter of that.
    If you come across the commodore equivalent you will be laughing.

    Disagree on that one. I prefer the look of the AU over the later BA. The XR models and Fairmont Ghia's in particular + they handled very well for the size of car. The base model Forte's and Futura's looked terrible at the front + the beer gut dash hit a little too close to home but the upper levels I quite enjoyed driving.

    RE: AU Falcon

    I am generally an off beat type of guy and in getting my next special interest vehicle I’d consider a nice clean original AU, especially the Forte (though I am actually considering an older EA-ED)

    Why? If I’m going to an all ford day, why be the 31st person there with an XA GT replica? It’s kitschy, retro and of its time.
