Cool Car Wanted

Hi Everyone.
I'm looking to buy a
FPV
XR8
XR6 Turbo
It has to be Sedan. It has to be a Manual.
Would like something that has work done to it. This car will be a Weekend/ Cruise car. So it would have to be looked after and in great condition.
Happy to travel for the right car.
Looking to spend around $15,000. I know it's not much but that's what I have. Thanks Matt

Did you get anything you were looking for? I can't help with an FPV manual but can possibly get you into my AUI ex-police pursuit (unmarked WA Police), that has a **** ton of new stuff including engine. Sure it is an auto but it goes like stink.

Some FPV's on carsales, such as this one in WA. Not sure how far you'd be willing to travel.

From my experience, I've spent the last few years looking for a clean AU blueprint S3 manual XR8. At the start I was only willing to accept something in VIC. I missed out on 3 really nice cars because i wouldn't travel for them, I am absolutely kicking myself now that I wasn't willing to travel. It's $900 to get a car on a truck from WA to east coast, cheap as chips for the right car.

I dont think i could buy a car that i have not seen or driven. Plus iím in the country. To get a car from sydney to me would be over $1000. And its only a 5 hour drive. so if i was to look at a car thats 12 plus hour drive i will be looking at over $2k or more. Iím happy to drive the distance for the right car.
