How low can these guys get!! Good luck to them trying to haul a few 20 ltr drums over the fence with Fido on their tails

Anyways, g'day all

I'm 23 years old and moved from far north Qld to the ridiculously cold Canberra a few months ago. I grew up on Ford v8 (inboard) skiboats and finally got my own boss260 xr8 ute a few weeks back. Great to see so many other mad car/v8/performance fans here! Going to love reading what you guys have done to your cars (and get some ideas ^^). Nice to meet you all

I just been checking this out and i thought i would post.

I love my FORDs. I just turned 18 and i been saving up for a car - 2002 Ford Falcon XR6 (Tickford). I have only had it for a few days and i know that when i finally sell it i will definately be buying another Ford XR vehicle or FPV vehicle.
While i have only had it for a few days i am already interested in increasing the rwkw and interior appearance.
My name is Mason and I'm in Brisbane. This isnt my first car, i had a mitsubishi lancer to start off : and i replaced it with the only car thinkable.
I love my Fords, having grown up in a small town focussed on Holdens.

Thanks. Mason.

hi im new to this site but have hung around wit a few people that r on it and never really had the chance to become a member as i had no computer.

I drive a white ef fairmont which is lowered wit 18" rims and a sunroof. I have made a couple of mods which include a stage 2 crow cam, a K&N filter, xr air intake and a full lukey exaust kit. When i last had it on the dyno it pulled around 145kw at the rear and i want more. I have been to a couple of the e series events both in geelong and in melb wit my mate EL Ghia and hope to go to many more as i dont work weekends anymore.

well hope to catch u all soon

Hello there.

Currently 23, I do not drive because I am lazy. Yeah...I am a loser. But I love Fords. People give me a hard time for it and say that "Holden drivers have real balls" and all that crap. Well...anybody can follow a bandwagon. And 95% of hoons I see on the road drive old Commodores or Toranas. Hmm...

I love XA-XC Coupes, XB and XC Sedans (not a fan of the XAs) and XW and XY sedans.

Once I get the cash and the motivation, I hope to get a classic Ford someday as a "Sunday drive car", as well as a "stick this up your cornchute" to those who bag Fords, but never laid an eye on a classic. However, my mechanical knowledge of cars is not great.
Hence my reason for coming here. Advice costs nothing, and having a schmooze is great!

Hope to talk to you all soon.
Please wait at least 3 days before flaming me :P

Cheerio!

Hi All. I'm new to this whole Ford thing. If anyone can give me some pointers on working on an 89 EA Falcon Series 1 it would be much appreciated.
Cheers!

Gday all

I, am a ford traitor.

I'm a Ford man, my old man is a Ford man, and I drive a Holden! I'm sorry. lol

Currently driving a VT Commy (just didnt like the AU) and its just a 'family car'. I'm still waiting for the chance to pick up my XB Hardtop...they just don't make them like they used to.

My old man's got an EB XR8 and a 1986 (?) F150 long tray 351 Windsor so I'm rather jeaolous. I must say- he only got back into his fords when I started visiting him after quite a few years- I'm proud to say I helped him find his inner 'hoon'.

Anyways great to see so many ford freaks in one place.

Brad

Hi.

Like many of you I have always had Fords, and have to put up with the Holdens rule etc... regularly.

I couldn't bring myself to buy an AU (apologies to all AU owners), but the BA's and BF's are a Ford I can be proud of once again !

Gday peoples.
I been looking through the forum the last few days since I just brought my 1st Falcon.
Thought i'd join up. Seems to be pretty good people in here.
I've only owned 1 other ford in my life. Turbo 1988 TX3. good car.
But now I got me a late 03 BA GT-P. Now I just gotta mod the motor a bit to get it crackin'. But its a nice car to drive.
As soon as I take a photo i'll post it up.
Im from Sydney. Tilt Tray driver.
I also own a MY98 WRX, 1975 Camaro with a Big Block in it, Hyundia Sonata and the trusty Mitsubishi FUSO Tilt Tray.
I've been into cars all my life.
I was a regular at car shows showing the rex.
But work has got pretty busy so I just work work work.
Hopefully I should be able to get the Falcon out to some cruises and meet a few of the lads on here.

Cheers
STEVE.

Hey all, names Glenn most people call me L.S.D so feel free.

My ride is yet to be posted in Show 'n' Shine ( im onto it though)

Shes a 04 Boss 260, stainless exhaust, bit of cold air and the rest is stock.

Driven fords from day dot with only one exception, Subaru WRX but unfortunately it couldn't take the motorbike anywhere let alone where I want.

Great site guys Im part of our Local Street and Strip club so its great to see a site dedicated to Fords and with such diversity.

Local: Kalgoorlie WA if you dont know it just ask someone about the big hole in the ground (no joke intended)

Thats about it am looking forward to getting to know you all and using the site to the max.

Oh if you ever refer to my car her name is Chastity.

Hi all, having a great time reading the various threads on this site and have learnt so much already, and will keep checking regually.
I just purchased an '05 BAII XR6 Shockwave and I am really happy with it. Prior to that I had an XH Ute, and I miss it but love my new XR6.

I love hearing all about ford mods and hope to do some on my BA when I have some extra cash, or when my wife allows it.
