Well now that ive been on a Fordmods event i thought i may as well post up some pics of the car (now that its actually clean :roll: ) Its my first road car but the second car I've bought, my parents had it from about 2 years old and before them it was a company car owned by one of my old mans mates, she is a 1996 EF Fairmont Ghia in Bordeaux and has done just under 335k km's

Shes done alot of Km's but not that many since my family owned it as it did over 200k Km's in its first two years! (all done on freeways it constantly went cross state lines) the motor is tight and so is the gearbox its been very fortunate and hasn't suffered any major issues unless you count a fuel pump a welsh plug and a harmonic balancer :lol:

It came from the factory optioned with all the tickford goodies and had almost every option box ticked apart from sunroof :cry: and gas.

All the suspension is worn out and will be promptly replaced when funds permit. She was recently treated to some EL GT replicas to get rid of the average stock wheels, more so because i had awesome 17" tyres and the 15's on it although almost new, where crap and dangerous in the wet!

Sound wise everything is stock for now apart from the Infinity 8" sub in a sealed box being run off the factory amp ive got focal polyglass 165 V1 splits for the front and still undecided for the rears the head unit will be replaced with an old Comp spec Clarion that requires all external amps.

Anywho here are some pictures i took today after a bath, the big black spot on the front bar is from where my brother decided he should reverse into it :x it will be replaced if i can find a suitable second hand one in good condition and there is soon to be an EL Fairmont Rear garnish too

Im in two minds for the cornering lights, ill get some try em out and see how they go then ill decide whether or not to keep them, as for a different grille, i like the EF one too much to loose it :oops: i have been considering what to do with the front and considered maybe a FBT look alike grille but ive also just considered redoing the factory one in fresh black and maybe having the ford emblem removed professionally so it looks factory...

as for straight... yeh the pictures really flatter the car, the front bumper on the left hand side is really horrible my brother reversed into it and moved it completely out of line and broke two of the mounts, once one in the same color comes up in good condition im gonna change it over, and most of the left side paint is heavily scratched, but its given me an excuse to save up for a respray either in the original color or im considering a black with a white flake through it as something different.
