Re: XY Fairmont GT's

Gerardo I think R200k is ridiculous for a car without papers that has been badly restored. If you have to redo a lot of stuff you can rather buy a unrestored/cheap car and do it all right.

Re: login Problems

Oom Johann, there is no simple way to do it. You can get scripts to run, but its not a few minutes job.

I really want to buy a canam - but I wouldnt do a car like that justice. That car needs to be raced, and I will only ever use it as a road car.

Re: Muscle Car Market

I think the market is getting more and more educated. There was a frenzy at some stage where anything remotely muscle like sold for big money.
