    After thinking about best way to deal with my other wagon I thought a donor vehicle is the best way to go, so scored myself another EF wagon, essentially the same as my blue one just an EFI and Polynesian Green, my idea was to drive it until it goes kablamo and put all the electrics, interior and exterior parts onto the blue wagon [​IMG]

    Honestly, the money you're spending on different cars, would be better served getting 1 decent one.....

    For starters, Hanson Road Wingfield, near Cormack road, there's a clean looking VK Commodore for sale....$2,000...

    In the same spot, there is another 3 cars there......Quite often, there are different cars in the same spot....(go past it twice a day)

    If you need me to look, let me know price range and I'll see what comes up....

    Why why why why why why why , by my reckoning this is your 2nd or 3rd Falcon , have you learned nothing ?? , and as mentioned try a Ford Forum for advice you can use on them , or better yet, buy a decent car to start with , and go from there .

    Here we go again.

    another vote here for buying a decent car to start with. Decent doesn't always mean expensive, you just need to know where and what to look for.

    No guy's spent decent money on this one, has no problems and is registered, insured and driving already so that I can just cruise and have fun, I am hoping to bring it to the Friday night meet down at kurralta and enjoying the driving time

    not much has happened other than replacing all the hoses and changing fluids and filters as preventative maintenance and have clocked about 550 kays on her on almost a full tank so am pretty happy

    exactly both are EFs thats what i noticed too just that this one changes from sea blue to sea green depending on the light angle, but have decided to sell the one with more problems and put it on this one to buy some speakers or something like that

    Not much to report, I want to take some photos at the beach or something like that and have already put 1,500 kilometres in just over two weeks with almost no grief :beer chug:

    I will take a rain check on that one, I have a bad feeling that the oil pump is not long of this earth, I am losing oil pressure when hot yet doesn't make any bottom end noise or top end ticking, any ideas on what to do? I was thinking of selling it on and buying a commodore

    Went hunting for the cause of my oil light turning on, it is not mechanical but electrical, looks like someone has been feeding my cars gremlins water And other than the brake booster failing I haven't had major problems with the falcon as yet

    Alright big update time, I got rid of the other falcon and spent it on getting a full coolant carrying hoses replaced, replaced the brake booster with a XR6 one, and an XR6 cluster, all new fluids and filters, I have been driving heaps, one evening meant only to get a fuel and go back home, nek minnit ended up out at Kersbrook :embarrass: but I did a photo shoot on the falcon, hope you enjoy them, all criticism is welcome http://s1040.photobucket.com/user/nickjenkins43/library/Christina%20the%20falcon

    Nother update on the falcon, I had the b###h decided to try to set itself on fire, so decided to upgrade the dash loom to a fairlane one so also has the bem of the donor car and also added climate control system to it, but I made a decision on whether to keep it or sell it on, I now have a buyer for it, I have also saved 1500 and plus the 900 from the wagon, so I have been looking at the NF or NL fairlane series,
