    Hey guys,
    Im a mass fan of my late 80s/ early 90s commies and im so after a special one of some sort. I didnt have much luck searching on the net / forums for one of the following cars. So if anyone could point me in the direction of any / link / person wud be appreciated.

    Im after one of the following:
    1) Manual Vn - either s pack / ss pack / Calais / Clubsport / HSV
    2) Manual Vp - either s pack / ss pack / Calais / Clubsport / HSV
    3) Manual Vr - either s pack / ss pack / Calais / Clubsport / HSV

    Im just trying to stick to the $5000ish or below price range, hoping to have some luck on it.

    Thanks all.:p

    Thought you found a Exec or SS for 5k with clubby stuff in it?


    You should buy that VP SS from Vic, although its not manual.

    When i was looking for an SS a while back, i found a genuine manual VN Berlina 5L 5Spd which was 5k, you just have to hunt the trading post every week, and be patient!

    Stockys turned out to be a clubsport. You can find VN SS manual for under 5 grand easy enough, VP SS manual about 6 grand at the most. S pack V6's are cheap, 2 grand will get one of those. Stealthy mentioned the VP SS rom my road? it's a auto but it's very nice and it'll sell for under 5 grand if it hasn't allready (I'm not sure)

    Nah i ment the white one on here.

    Keep in mind were in SA, and he has no desire to buy a car interstate, so all the prices you guys are quoting are WAY under the mark for SA cars.

    No point them getting your hopes up when the 5k car in Vic will sell for 7k or more here!

    Consider buying from interstate tho, you'll save shitloads, and its a fairly simple process if you don't buy a heap of ****!
