20 years? Still a lot of fur..
Ah, the car!

Seriously, looks like very good condition. Ford Falcon? VCT 4 litre engine?!
Is this some kind of bug deflector at the front?

The deflector I assume you mean the bonnet stone guard.
2000 AU Ford Fairmont Ghia.
Btw, she's only done 82,000 Kms.

Hey Reece. Nice wheels.

Does " Tiggy " approve of your new ride ? We decided we needed a truck so I got an 18 year old 4wd truck from a friend who had it at his business. The truck needs a transmission and hasn't been used in a while. I wanted the older truck because the newer ones had frames that resembled Swiss Cheese in as little as 5 years after purchase.

The car is in very good condition Reece and I am convinced that it will be able to deliver what you want ... why not invite "someone" of your dates on an excursion...

Put a pic up of that!

I would like to get an old tractor to clean up the place a bit.
