    Lith,

    Plenty of Mustangs here but you have to pay big $$$ for them, and, proportionally even more if you get it converted to right hand drive!

    Parts do come in form the US but as there are so many cars here already there are a few suppliers. Again cost is the limiting factor.

    As for the Monaro! They first came out in 68/69 and have always been a favourite of mine. Not quite the styling of the Mustang but easily matching on grunt. I believe you guys have the latest version over there now re-badged as Pontiacs or something like that? I know they changed the nose-come area for your market.

    Jess,

    You lost me [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    I suspect whatever cars you are talking about are not names as such here. One example I can think of is the Mazda Miata (I think that's what it is in the US). Well, itís the MX-5 here and if you said Miata to the average person on the street they'd have NO IDEA what you were talking about.

    Actually now rereading I think you are talking European cars and the BMW M3? Still plenty around but again $$$.

    As you mentioned we do have a few of the Ford Models built here, but IMO anything post-mid 70's has little in the way of style.

    Aaron.

    Yes,
    We have the current Monaro rebadged as the Pontiac GTO... Here the Miata badge says MX-5 Miata. Everyone just says miata. 2004 E55 AMG is the car of choice here. Fast and fun. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    a S38 powered M5 (BMW) was called a 535M in Aussie for the first couple of years then it switched to Just M5, the e30 M3 is called the M3 in aussie. The ones I'm talking about (e30 M3 [1988-1991] and e28 M5 [1985-1991]) are older versions of the new ones and in my opinion true sports cars. They're not all bloted with traction this variable valve timing that, its just pure power and a light weight car. There's some guys getting 600whp+ from the s38 engin. And when youi factor in the e28's weight, its amazing. Plus in Aussie you guys have so much more resouces then I do... I envy you....sometimes...

    Anyway those two cars aren't terribly expentise since they are the older models. Especially now, they're in that period where they aren't quite classics but they aren't quite new, you know what I mean? so thier price is reasonable. I myself have an e3o and its a blast, I love smacking high power japanese imports all day at the canyons ///M - its priceless....

    skylines are over hiped the RB26dett (engine) isn't as great as an engin as most people think. The ones making 450+ horse power carry nothing OEM on thier engin its ridiculous, you can do that to any engin, that is, replacing all the parts with aftermartket junk. Plus the R34 skyline is the newer ones so that car is still quite expensive. You'd probly be looking for something like a R32 skyline and that has a RB25det (notice the single "T" denotes a single turbo) so that engin is more costly to pump lots of juice out of.... Well sorry to bore you guys/gals with a bunch of car junk.... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/cool.gif[/img]

    True it needs a proper stick shift, but until the new M5 comes out, E55 is the best "family car" around. Right, family car. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Horrifyingly fast. 60 in 4.2. You should see the look on the faces of Carrera drivers... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
