1984 Ford Telstar TX5 Ghia 2.0L Carb from Australia and New Zealand
Love my black beast
Rear suspension was very weak needed replacing.
Alternator brushes and starter motor let go.
Head gasket blew at 226000 (recent)
For $450, the car was worth it.
Handles excellent with expensive sports suspension.
Interior is very appealing
Engine power is good. I have reached 178kph (digital dash). Engine has had mods, like, Exhaust, Extractors, 3 Prong spark plugs, Top Gun 9mm leads.
Car looks awesome with Bonnet scoop, front and rear spoilers and 16" Mags.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I own the very same Ford Telstar TX5 1984 model (hatchback).
I have a hard time looking for an aftermarket performance suspension; in other words - I would like to lower my car's height.
I would appreciate if you could tell me the model & type of the said "expensive" suspension in your review.
Thank you & God Bless.
