Your TX5 looks really good, the front end sort of resembles a model of Mustang..

And the interior looks pretty modern, kind of like a Sylvia in a way.

Got a 0-100 time yet? :lol:

Nice buy with the TX5 dude.
My ex owned a white one, same model as yours, and it's one of the only FWD cars I've enjoyed driving.

thanks mate im happy with it, id have to agree with you on that they are a very fun car to drive even tho they are FWD.

havent done much to it at the moment i chucked the cd player in out of the falcon in the shed and today bought a SAAS gear knob and AMR throw over seat covers. hopefully after the st helens meet and greet it will have a cat back exhaust :P

hi i have recently bought a 95 XR8 Falcon and saw that you had changed the ordinary clock to a trip computer from a Fairmont. I am interested in doing this, did the car need and extra parts other that the module.

"took the car over to the mechanic today and they had a look at it reason why the tensioner let go is because who ever put the head on when the old owner had it tensioned it up wrong damaging the aux shaft and something else i forget now causing the tensioner to snap when i first started it and also theres not much oil flowing into the cylinder head....so now i gotta decide to find another motor or just get rid of the car."

strange,, the aux shaft is fine?? everything in mines working fine??? maby he was trying to scam you

its funney that most of your old ef stuff is in my car, block, seats, crank lol
