  1. While I don't mind a good yank tank I do prefer the Brit stuff. Cash permitting I would own any number of the beasts (including Brit Fords) such as the SD1 Rover, any of the Farina BMCs, MGB, Triumphs just to name a few. I bought the Marina because (having had a 6 cyl P76 in my youth) I like the 2.6 engine and I wanted to preserve a piece of Australian motoring history. I actually drove the Marina from Wagga Wagga to Townsville in 2013 and enjoyed every moment of it.
  2. Changes I have made so far are only the wheels. The 17 inch ROHs it came with were not in line with what I was going to use the car for as I fitted a set of 15 inch DA LTD mags with 205-75 -15 tyres. Not the best looking mag (by far not the worse either) but that that was all I could find at the time.
  3. When I first saw Flo I was a bit surprised at the location of the selector switch as I had it in the back of my mind it should have been mounted lower. Who knows which is correct but I do know that during the XH model Ford started moving features from the Outback such as the extra mud flaps and bull bar maybe as they started running out of components so maybe they were mixing and matching in the XG. I think the high mounted switch is much more convenient location for the switch.
  4. Wild Violet is a favorite of mine since I was a kid.
  5. Flo is close to original bar the colour, wheels, Hard Top Tonneau Cover, and tradie bars. Marina is original no mods.
  6. It is a bit scary to write them all down makes me think what have I done with my free time and money.
  7. No aircon? Absolutely unthinkable in an Outback just the name says you will be going somewhere bloody hot.
  8. G'day This is Flo my Falcon Longreach Outback. She is a 1995 model and was originally Lemans Red but was resprayed Phantom before I purchased her. I this stage I am not considering respraying her. This will not be so much a build but by jingo's it does need a lot to get her on the road such as: all shock absorbers, new front springs, retentioned rear springs, brake rotors and pads, other suspension bits, distributor, water pump, etc etc. Very much hoping to get started in the new year.
  9. Hello to all Think I have been here before though a number of years ago. This time I'm back with my Phantom coloured XG Falcon Longreach Outback (Flo). I am not a Ford fan but am mad keen Falcon (Futura, Fairmont, Fairlane, LTD) fan. I have two project cars (at the moment) they being Flo and a 1974 Leyland Marina 2.6 sedan. Along with these two I have a FG ute (my everyday driver), a BF Mk2 Futura, a Kawasaki ZZR1200, and a Triumph Trident 900. As I am by no means a young bloke I have owned many vehicles over the years and as such have spent (maybe even wasted at times) to much money.

I chose Flo because 1. it is a Falcon, 2. it is a ute, and 3. I just love what it was designed to do. I am in the process of moving and hope to start working of Flo in the near future.
