    Default My first car!

    It may not be a 911 turbo or a 599 GTB but for only $1000 i'm happy

    I bought it today off my dads mate. I don't have my full license yet so it will be my learning car till i get my license.


    It's a 1993 Ford Falcon Fairmont. It's got all the niceties such as electric windows, Cruise control, keyless entry,Alloy wheels , the only thing it don't got is a CD player(Radio/cassette FTL)

    Sorry on the crap quality pics but it was 8:30am & i only had my phone camera(sleep deprivation+crappy camera=bad pics)

    Nice one, i love Fords, but i'm more into english fords. But my dads friend has a Tickford Falcon XR8 and a Tickford Capri and both of them are amazing. Make sure you take care of it. Are you going to do anything to it (in time i mean)?

    I'm not a real mechanical person so the most i'll be doing (for the time being anyway) is installing a CD player & hanging some fluffy dice from the rear view mirror (Gotta have the fluffy dice ^_^)

    but Ford builds it's Inline six's pretty good anyway so i should beat most Jap crap "Poser" cars off the line in a drag anyway should i choose to do something like that

    Now that I've had the car for about a week I've noticed a few flaws.

    front left brake pad is worn, Air conditioner needs re-gassing, drivers side electric window gets stuck sometimes, window washer is broke & some interior lights are blown. Least its all stuff that can be fixed

    It was still worth it though for only $1000
