This car is one of a kind, fast and reliable


There have been no problems at all with my Fairmont. It's reliable, strong and can/will beat any Holden any day. The inside of the is in top shape, hardly a scratch.

General Comments:

The car is very cheap to run because I have converted it to gas (LPG). I have also made some alterations and put on a muffler system that makes the car purr like a kitten. This car will be able to beat any holden any time. Holden's are constructed poorly. The car is very easy to maintain, tires last a while (depands if you do burn outs or not). overall this Fairmont 93 is great.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
