    Having owned 3 Corollas...if you want good, reliable, cheap (to run and repair) transport then you'd be mad to go past the Corolla.....not as sexy maybe bit it will get ya there........just make sure, if its the OHC variety, that the cambelt has been replaced (at 100,000 first then every 80,000).......
    The older I get...the better I was

    Since the price of GAS(LPG) is less than Half the price of petrol, if you are on a budget then it makes even more sense to convert the falcon over to LPG

    Small problem there - the amount of gas needed by a Falcon is about 70% higher (in litre amounts) than petrol - so the cost advantage of LPG is almost wiped out when you factor conversion costs into the equation. So cars that are used a lot (like taxis) are the only ones that can really benefit from a gas conversion.

    Also, you do lose a fair amount of power on gas, but is greatly offset by the much cleaner emissions :)

    Still looking... turned down a few ones that seemed OK but have a closer look and there are flaws... I really don't know who the people are who give RWC's to these lemons :hammer:


    [EDIT] The price of LPG is 39.6c/litre and 77.1c/litre for ULP in SE Queensland, so maybe gas is cheaper in VIC? :confused:[/EDIT]

    Queensland is the only state without a state fuel tax :D

    And to rub some salt in, ULP was 75.1c/litre this morning
