Could you specify a bit...What do you want in a car, your budget, where do you live, how old are you, what will she be used for, etc...

So you can't decide between a Pulsar GTI-R and a VL Turbo?...Those weren't available in Canada, but I'd take the Pulsar just from personal preference

what is it with puberty and cars damn. If you get a job now I dont think your going to get 7 grand in may try more like 2-4 grand maybe. If you want an opinion I'll agree with chris take the pulsar.

Then again, a 1990 Pulsar is bluebooked at $2,000, not sure about the GTi-R, but shouldn't be 5,000 more...

I was throwing insight on a minimum wage job if he hasn't had one before. He seemed to be a little to optimistic

You're thinking of this Nissan Pulsar NX, very common in North America


He's talking about this Pulsar GTi-R, not available here, (and first time I have ever seen one)

Can you post a pic of the VL Turbo he's talking about? I've been searching and it seems there are a lot of different VL Turbos. Damn crazy aussies... (just kidding)

Here is a Holden vl turbo, top ones modified the bottom ones stock.

These are my favourite model holden commodore, maybe because they are the only holden in with a nissan engine.
