hes getting it intercooled sometime soon - no turbo /s/charger on it, just interecooled... which i think is a lil werid personally, but im not gunna say no to driving it when he throws me the keys next time round! lol


intercooler is gonna do jack s**t without forced induction!? whats the point?

i think the main reason theres not many LWB on the site is the weight and the length really, i like a bit of handling and speed with my cars, i personally love fairlanes and LTD's, but its the weight that throws me off and the length, i'd assume they dont handle to well... they do look awsome when done up though, real cruisers! love NL'S/NF's.

they actually don't handle to badly. But they are definatly not as chuckable as a EF/EL GLi or Futura. The only real b**ch with them is the turning circle and parking them in tight spots

I find my zl is easier to park than my Daewoo lanos - but then again, i hate parking!!!
I only ever chuck my fairlanes around - tho i havnt ever driven a falcon of the same era so i cant say i know the difference in handling - to me they feel well balanced for thier size..
