Default G'day all

Been lurking for a while and thought I better join in the fun.

My Name is Rob and i'm into classic Fords and I live in Perth. I own an original White 1978 XC 351 4 speed GS Falcon with only 225,000k on the clock and with original motor that starting to get a little tired.

Great place here.

Cheers

Hello Everyone. So nice to see a group of ford lovers i have driven a ford my whole life since i was 13 (except for my rebellious year of owning a holden) But i got my EA now and it is looking poor. I am waiting on parts and some nice eyecandy and new paint then it will be as good as i can get it myself a few problems taking the immobilizer out and replacing it with an alarm and also the stereo or the wires are faulty which has had me scratching my head for days but lets hope i will figure it out in the next few days before that parts start coming in.. only can do 1 thing at a time.

Hey there every one,

Jesse's the name and Fords are my game ;) I work at an Autobarn store down in south gippsland and I drive a EF Futura, its lowered and has a drift pod filter, sound system consists of two Pioneer 12"s, 1100watt 5 Channel USA audio amp, clarion 3-ways and a Pioneer head unit.

I'll edit this tomorrow some time when I can take a couple of pictures, plans for my EF (in the next couple of weeks) are to fit HM headers (after having them HPC coated), 2 1/2" center muffler & 3" straight through tail pipe (to be bent up in our workshop) then much much more to come.

I look forward to getting to know all of you and your cars better.

-Jesse.

How is it everyone? I actually joined up yesterday and have been slowly going through the different sections and have now stumbled to this section that I should have used first...oops.
Anyhow its been a few years since owning a ford but I've always had a soft spot for them and I like your website, very interesting.
Anyhow, I own an 1988 HSV SS Group A (#001, first HSV ever) and a new VZ SS ute but thought I'd pop in and find out some info from your well informed members and share any info I may have. Hope to chat to you's later anyhow.
Carl.

Hey girls and guys. I am phee and obviously a newbie. I'd post pics but then I would have to resize them and I really can't be bothered right now I drive an XR6 ute which is in the for sale section on this site - check it out if you're interested.

Hi Everyone,

I just come across the site and it looks like a site I would enjoy and may be able to add too.

I have a XY GT Clone running a warm 351C, Toploader and 9" diff. I have it off the road at the moment while I rewire her and perform a few other mods.



I look forward to getting to know you.
