So, now that the STi is written off, I'm torn between these to vehicles
The purple is a 1970 VG has won multiple trophies for interior and paint. Has a good solid 265 with extractors and 3 speed auto. I have photoshoped the white walls in as that's look I would be going for just a bit lower.

The wagon needs a bit of work, ie has a few little bits of surface rust and motor is getting a bit old.

brave choice but if its in our heart then do it!

i think cars speak to people in different ways. im slowly working my way to buying what is in my eyes my poster child car. some may laugh at my choice but ever since year 10 when its first came out circa 1992 nothing has spoken louder to me than an eb gt falcon. by years end in hoping to turn that motoring dream into reality. an ultra low km black pearl factory sunroof and manual shift will do my soul wonders.

real man dreams not pipe dreams of owning an sv miura although one powerball could change that!

Personally I'm a fan of the wagon but how bad is its condition? Is it reflected in the price?

Nice Ramon, have you got that car lined up or is it the dream combo?

I have always had a thing for the Valiant 2 doors. Shared a house with a guy who had a VG with a 383 in it. The wagon just doesn't compare, except in practicality.

All old cars will need constant TLC
Valiant is a good choice, I have almost finished a Vc v8 Regal with a pretty wild stroked 318 (390ci)
Also if buying from east make sure you go over and have a look Make sure you have more than one too look at most old cars people think they are more than what they really are,Be ready to be disapointed at what most people think it just needs a little bit this and its got alittle bit of that ..

I've got my Mum and her Partner looking at the coupe tomorrow. He has owned a few Vals in the past and knows what to look for. Ive spoken to the owner about the wagon and it needs a bit more than I am willing to put in espesially with the lack of time that I usually have.

2 door it is!

Any thoughts on the white walls? Also where in perth would I be able to get some?

There's a place on Dowd St, Welshpool near the corner of Kewdale Rd, called Antique Tyres WA (ph:6161 3709), they do whitewalls, redlines etc, can even paint them onto existing tyres.
