Hey yes you got it, another of those "what should I get" ones.
I have some different criteria though...
The vehicle has to be at least 20 years old!!! otherwise I gotta pay $20,000 having the damn thing converted from left hand drive!!
It has to be something that catches the eye here in New Zealand.
It has to be a decent car that will not give me heaps of trouble when I come to comply it, (vehicle registry that check the car is fully road worthy before giving it the vin number).
I assume that an old truck with a good v8 should be reliable and as I sell wheels would fit most any wheel I choose to put on.
Oh yeah, because I sell wheels it needs to be somewhat practical for transporting wheels around, which is why I'm leaning towards a truck. sierra, jimmy, f150, ect.
Lastly I don't wanna spend much more than $4000-$5000 as I still have to spend $5000nzd on importing, complying and sign writing.
Am I being totaly unrealistic?? I have seen a couple of trucks on ebay which look good and even some with decent lifts for around the money I wanna spend, but don't know if I'm looking at the "too good to be true" range out there?
So, anyone got an opinion there care to share on this for me???
Where should I look?
Who should I employ to inspect prior to purchase?
what should I expect to pay for what I want??
