cheers mate it gets the looks when its out and about.

should of still bought it :P mine had 135,000ks when i bought it nearly 12 months later its only done 140,000 once i finish the interior and paint i want to drag it out on weekeds and go on some good cruises in it.

i do like the look of it on 18's but can beat the fat look of dragways i had to massage the rear gaurds for the 10s to have clearance under it :twisted:

Gotta be low for the best looks on these lol

nah too much other s**t to move (moving from mildura to melbourne, so its a long move) and already have 5 cars between us, plus a shed full of stuff, plus a house full of stuff

Itd be an awesome cruiser.

The one i was looking at was a little rusty, but nothing bad, ran like a dream and had about 160 000
Its only $600 too

its on ultra lows low enough.

yea it gets like that i "organised" all my parts today i have a big box and 2 largish crates full of parts.

i have a na fairlane im fixing up for a daily threads down the page abit.

worst rust in mine was the drivers door then theres 2 bubbles on each lower rear 1/4 the size of a 10 cent piece. $600 is a good price was it regod? i paid $1,000 with rego for mine had to fix a couple of things nothing major.

yeah $600 with rego but no roady

Yeah i reckon ultras would be plenty low, usually are haha

Weve got an AU ute, EF falcon, NC Fairlane, Nissan terrano and my XR6 lol

This one was mainly rusty around the rear wheel arches.

Still to this day p****d at myself for letting my ZJ fairlane get beyond fixing. It was mint when i got it

Boot lid where the spoiler mounts, and at the front of the boot theres a seam (just behind the windscreen) that is a common spot to go.

In all honesty i think B series are s**t.
My EB fairmont was a hugely better car than my BA. I wouldve sold it already but its under finance at the moment, will be for a while.
Planning to sell it and get an E series again as soon as i can

Agree about the B Series - and the territorys have the same problem. I heard that ford really skimped on the seam sealer on them.

Ive got an EL.. which just blew head gasket (its getting a 5.0 this week), and an XF (yours looks nice BTW). Im actually looking towards the next car, and its really hard to decide to buy a falcon knowing that they rust like that now.

One of the best options might be a nice low-k car from say Tennant Creek or somewhere else in Central Australia? - nice, dry climate not a big chance of rust anyway??
