Picked this girl up for a steal at $500 :)

All she needs is a new front right QT pannel and a left mirror (as you can see in the pics haha)

But i went down to the local exhaust shop today and they happened to have a VR they were recking! to i get the QT pannel and mirror for $50 on wednesday :) also there welding in a new pipe and tips onto my exhaust (previous owner cut it -_-) for another $50, so its going to cost me all up including the car $600 to have it at roadworthy, not complaining with that!! haha

Anyway, Specs time haha

Car : 94 Commodore
Engine : 3.8L BUICK
Gearbox : Ex highway pursuit (so obviously re-enforced and better timing)
Diff : Mini Spool ;)
Gearing : Auto (im lazy as **** haha)
Stereo : JVC Headunit and Alpine type R 6 inch in the front (No rears or sub yet they come after rego haha)

Any questions feel free to ask :)

She needs a bit of work, but will be a nice car, also anyone that knows of anyone selling a set of interceptors i'd love to know :)

Pics : (i will get more when i change the pannel on wednesday)
