UCF11 celsior
pros; cheap (people are scared to own as theyre pre 90's), nuts comfy, people think its expensive (when its really not!), with a quick intake they sound tits, potential for over 600rwhp without opening engine if you ever thought some day you wanted to boost it, UZ's are tuffff, if you're tricky and get one with stock air suspension you can get a height controller to lower it/raise whenever you please
cons; lexus stigma, parts are pricey unless you dig a bit deeper, 15-16L/100k stop start, freeway can get it down to 10L/100k though. every kent in his 5L whatever wants to race you when he hears you coming

hopefully soon to be replaced with a 620 :D

U13 bluebird SSS

Auto, ka24de, digital climate control, heads up display, comfortable front and rear seats. Electric windows, cruise control.

Pro's - Perfect daily work hack (only used for driving 20km's to work basically), basically owes me nothing due to insurance payout.

Con's - Not many really other than it is a shitter.

Had to google that to find out what it was. Found this one: http://www.ae86drivingclub.com.au/forum ... ead-turner

That was parked up the road from me for a few weeks. I had a chuckle every time I saw it.

My daily is the walking to the bus-stop, bus, train, another train, walking to work - All my cars are busted at the moment, but usually its a R31 Skyline Coupe.

Resurecting old thread.......

Holden SSV Redline ute.
Pros : makes nice V8 noise, goes pretty good and has all creature comforts.
Cons : doesn't have a supercharger on it, too nice to use as a work ute.
