VY executive
depends on your price range, if you can afford a vz, go for it.

vz's are good cars

Why ask everyone else what you should get? It's your money, buy what YOU want. Everyone will tell you to buy something different.

Are you old enough to drive a supercharged car? Who cares what people think it's your car and you have to be happy with it.

New member-which car?

Hi Folks, I have just joined & am pretty keen to get a very CHEAP Commodore.
As an old guy (51), who has only ever had pre-1975 Holdens and have been driving an EF Ford Fairmont for the last 2 years-(which I HATE!), I need to know what model Commodore to try & buy & get outa Fords FOREVER!

I dont know much about these 'modern' computer cars BUT I know I NEVER EVER wanna FORD with an alloy head & plastic radiator-tanks & while I can work on early Holdens, I reckon its time to start on 1990s Commodores.

I'd prefer a V8 but dont have the BUCK$ at present so a V6 will do!
I'm not very familiar with them as until 2 years ago I still drove my old "Classics" but illness forced a sale & my son GAVE me the Ford- (that is the only way I'd get one!).

As I'm very broke, I need a cheap Commodore with good air-conditioning for my wife who is not real well-(allergic to QLD summers!), but I only can afford $1500 or so.

Which models are the best in this low price range?

What goes wrong & what do I look out for?

I've been told a VP/VR/VS would suit & having driven some of these models for short drives like what I felt & saw. Any advice would be much appreciated!
NO MORE 'Floppy Ford-alloy-heads' !!!

Cheers, kramreltub.:D

The 304 V8's chew **** all fuel mate unless you give them a thrashing. They can still be pretty fuel economical. My VS Senator uses half a tank of fuel a week (about 40 and a bit litres) with a tune and 3" exhaust and giving it a bit of a spray every now and then.

Try and find a VN - VR 5 litre. Nothing special, just an Executive or a Berlina etc with a 5 litre transplant or even a VN - VS Calais 5 litre if you want a V8. They don't cost much.

Many thank nemisis & Cobez- I LIKE what you say!
I've always found V8s quite economical-(depending on the weight of the right foot!), & much more fun & also reliable. Do these 5- litres have CAST IRON heads?

Now I just gotta get familiar with the various models/years/letters=VN/VP/VR/etc-(Statos have different letters?), & check out the for sale ads.

No doubt, you'll be pestered by my STUPID questions for a long time yet!:bang:;)

Thanks & enjoy your Holdens-(while I wait).....:whistling

Cheers, kramreltub.:thumbsup:
