Post some pictures, sounds like a beauty. XD's have always been my favoutite Falcons and it sounds like youve picked up a hard to get car. As stated above look after it, maybe lower it a little with a nice set of old school mags and have fun. But do not listen to MO (as he is a bit of a d***head).

I still say burnouts or maybe weld up a roll cage and take it on the gravel.

If you want it for street use a mild 200hp shot of Nitrous will make it move and still retain that stock look :lol:

I dont value the comments of Seten005 he is boring. (and a bit of a f&*kwit)

sounds good. dump it, nice rims (oldschool) and that would just about do it. plus all the usuals under the bonnet. plugs leads filters oil etc. maybe a free flowing exhaust and headers. when did alloy head come out? is it crossflow? you could upgrade to these down the track
