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


hmmm something to think about then, maybe a au ghia could be the way to go.


Yep AU is the last nice car Ford have done IMO. but its all matter of opinion haha

Mine was from Mildura, which is a pretty hot dry place most of the time.
