Ride: BF3 Egas wag SY AWD Terry Ghia

Location: Brookfield
VIC, Australia

I haven't owned any myself. I had 2 mates with old cortina's though which I helped rebuild so I was part owner by proxy. One was a mk2 1.6 and the other a TC 2L that went great till the cam belt snapped and we had to replace it. It got totalled by someone running a red light. I was pretty into the 2L cortina's back then. That guy's brother bought a TD 4.1 ghia that was really nice for 6 months until he smashed it up.

Ride: 2004 Mazda Tribute

The Missus had a KF Laser, 1.6L. I know its really a Mazda design, but it was built in Homebush! Go Aussie built cars ;-)

Ran really nice until she smashed the front end. The FIL and I put a new radiator in, and bashed out the front and bonnet until it locked, and it was drivable again. Looked awful, but it passed another 2 rego's like that! Amazing.

Can not remember if KF and KH TX3s were built here like the stockies (I have a feeling TX3s were not), but KC and KE TX3 Lasers were built in Japan and the stockies were built here.

I thought it was a bit strange date, first Mk1 RS2000 was not released until 73, but there was nothing stopping someone building a replica out of a 1970.

I had a mate who had a 84 Telstar Ghia.... damn it went hard for a "mums car".... or seemed to at the time.

In any case, the Ghia was a nice change to the Laser L's, Geminis, and Charades that most P platers when we were at school had!

Ride: NCII Fairlane + G220

Power: 143 rwkw

Location: Lake Macquarie
NSW, Australia

Here's my short list :)

1. 1969 (i think) Purple Escort Panel Van. My first car, did great smoke shows in reverse :lol: lasted 6 months before I rolled it on a dirt road in Nulkaba (near cessnock)
2. 1969 1600 GT Capri - I loved this car, very quick for a 4cyl. Unfortunately it tried to climb a telegraph pole at 60Kph and came off second best :cry: .
3. Little red Corolla, Can't remember what year :? Died of Cancer.
4. 1982 KA Laser. This was my wife's car. I surprised her one day when I took it for a drive and came back with an 82 351 XD wagon. "What???" I said, I seen it in a car yard and the dealer made me an offer I couldn't refuse, Laser + $500 :D
5. Datsun 120Y - Bought it for a little work car. Bought this car off Dad's mate who had had it since new and still looked like new when I bought it. Unfortunatley, my other car was a 1979 351 LTD and I drove the little datto the same way. I eventually blew the motor (6 weeks after buying it) :lol: Haven't owned another 4 since.
