1982 FORD FAIRMONT FUTURA. RUNS AND DRIVES, BRAKES ARE BAD. SOLID CAR OUT OF NEW MEXICO. GREAT START FOR A RACE CAR, PAINT APPEARS TO BE MOSTLY ORIGIN...cars.trovit.com
Good lord...that's uglier than Rosanne Barr. And $2000? That's a $1000 car if there ever was one. No one under 50 would drive it if you gave it to them.
I have to at least pretend to play within the budget of what I got for the 85. At least til the questions of why did you get rid of the Mustang and I still CANNOT park in the garage fade into the distance. I don't want to blow half my budget on THAT. I would, however consider spending up to 3/4 of my budget on a Falcon or Maverick. Preferably Falcon.
Not quite the look I'm going for, but a damn fine ride
