Ride: 1989 EA Falcon

Location: Gold Coast
QLD, Australia

Well here are some pics of my EA S. I painted the Door handles and grey bit around the doors and bumpers to match the car.

When I bought the car the prevous owner had painted some kind of mustard colored rubbish on the front two rims.

So I stripped the paint off these completly and painted the bits between the pretend spokes in black.

Tell me what you think.

I'm sorry but I don't buy the whole box caar rules thing, that's jjust being stupid trying to argue thaat they are one of the nicest models! When you know they just can't beat thee XA-XC look,, XY/XW, or even some of tthe earlier models!
Butt with that saiid II certainly don'tt mind them, and with a bit oof exterior styling they can look s**t hoot - did someone say EB GT (exterior shhits on the EL GT in my opinion for toughness, but just doesn't match it in modern looking and style/comforts)!
As forr your car above buddy, looks very nice a clean. Lower it, decent wheels (not to offend yoour currrent ones too much), tinted windowss, nice exhaust tip, and would look so much better again!

Boxcar pride, though i may be trading in the boxcar for a wannabe melted box car ( a freakin fine one at that).
twr7cxwaet i think you need your typing hand cut off as there are way too many letters in your sentance then what you actually needed.
Car looks good ddod, howd you go about painting it?

Boxcars rule! (only cos I can't afford anything newer!) Hey the car looks good man. Rather than a new set of wheels though get the Ghie rims polished. I had these on my xf Ghia and everyone wanted to know where I got my wheels! 8-) They looked absolutely hot and I think only cost me about 100 bucks for all 5.
