I thought I'd join OzFalcon, I'm more of a Holden Person but I've got my pops old NA Fairlane which was sitting in the shed for 5 years collecting dust before I got it out last year.

I'm also a fan of Ford trucks since my dad used to drive a 1986 Ford LNT 9000 Louisville with a 350 CumminsIMG_5771.JPG.d860d837f9b8041594ebf9442e55cccf.JPG

G'day mate, glad to have you on board. We might just fully convert you to blue blood yet! That shape Fairlane still catches my eye to this day. Love them.

 

Nice rig too, 350 was decent power back in the day. That would've been the old 855 right? I'm a HV mechanic but did my time on Benz and MAN. Mostly Suzys these days, some Euro stuff.

Yep old 855 Big cam. It was in a accident about 12 years ago so it looks a bit different now, might even buy it back one day.

Welcome aboard mate, cool fairlane and I love the truck. Those old trucks are awesome and still classy in my opinion. 350 big cam were the ants pants back in the day 🤙🏻
