Ride: EL '97 V8 Wagon

Location: blue haven
NSW, Australia

Hi all,

So I was looking at buying an EF Wagon but last minute an EL 50 Mont came available.. I have had an EL sedan for 6-8 yrs now and just love the car... Anyway Ive seen this one around before and missed it earlier in the year and had a second chance at it so im thinking it was meant to be :)

Bought it in VIC isnt their any rules there or something... as it was dropped on its back side I couldnt even get into my local shopping centre lol, and so blue slipped it and of course the ride height was too low 320 and illegal, the brakes were metal on metal and the fella who sold it to me still owes me a set of injectors which im doubtful of him sending but hey im right with it what goes around comes around is the old saying, just stoked i have an el wagon. so here is where we are at for the moment and pics to come.

anyway pretty tidy car inside all electrics work and aircon issues at all except cruise buttons broken but cruise works still

Ford Fairmont Wagon factory 5.0 blue

reset leaf springs to minimum actually its 10 mm under but they passed me
super low front kings and shortened struts
genie extractors and sports cat back exhaust sounds great
standard induction with k&n filter ....

things to do list

thinking of modifying for pod filter looking into it as im a newbie
get darker tint as its factory tint at moment
iron out the creases and small dings
attach the blinker fog lamp things to parker lights

thinking of placing au manifold ??? is this worth doing at all?
ive got bathurst globes and ftr's not sure which i like best the globes are only 15" though
is there such a thing as leather seats for the back on a wagon? or do they need to be custom made?

just want a clean, reasonably tough looking great sounding wagon....

thanks for any thoughts or input.
