My mate has one, but he never drives it. Its auto though and he is not really into modding cars. I would love to get it off him and fix it up as its is pretty neglected!!!

I got a baller one its fair tough and i race it to Melbourne and back to Adelaide everyday for work, i enjoy blowing the doors of speed boats that are parked at the road house dinner when i stop for dinner cause i don't use much petrol cause its a hybrid now because i converted it over, i put a battery out of my favourite VN in it and well since i haven looked back "mainly cause i think it fell over and the fan rubbed through it and battery acid went heaps of spots but yeah defiantly runs better now,

Compared to my Renault which only runs a motorbike style front suspension arrangement and half a tarp for a roof, my fc is a bit slower but is pretty cheap to run and maintain, its comfortable and im glad that i got it as a work car, because my ve Calais "ex work car" is to hard to control with my stereo install.

i found that by putting a screw driver through my compressor wheel and letting that remove my apex seals that i gain some power and drive-ability? has anyone else found this as its been going strong for about 28 years now
