Hey everyone, i'm new here and need some advice on buying a car. A guy down the road is offering to sell it to me. It's and old ford fairlane, in pretty good condition with a few dent's here and their. It's running on a V8 and has new suspension. It looks reallly good as it is, but i'm sure i can turn it into a nice little muscle car soon.
It's my first car though and i don't know if i should buy it or not. My dad reckon's that it's a complete waste of money because 1. "These" kind of car's run on different fuel, 2. It will probaly cost alot in the long run just to get the repairs done because it's such and old car and 3. The insurance on it would be even more cash draining because it's and old car with hard parts to get.
But anyway, what do you guys think of a 74 Ford Fairlane in fairly good condition. Is it true about the petrol being different to any other car? Do you reckon it will need alot of repairs? Oh and i plan on getting a mechaninc to have a look at it befor i buy it. But yeah...what do you think?
