Yeah we bought 2 Silver ones as we didnt want to paint, both had under 100 000 kms on them with the VCT motor, and the kays didnt worry us at all as we have the facilities to rebuild when needed. The cars are Series 1's with full leather, premium sound, and mudspats all that type of crap.

All we had to do was buff / polish them up a bit, wack on the badges, put in the taxi gear like the stickers and counters etc and get them registered. Both had brand new tyres, and were EX company cars from what i can tell as they had phone kits in them.

My boss was extreamly happy wiht them at that price and gave me a $250 bonus for the week in cash!!!! IM like ohh YEAHHHHHHHHH.

this include the beaded seat covers etc....?

love seeing fairmonts and fairlanes etc as taxis, sh*t condition base model falcons are some of the worst damage that can be done to fords/falcons image - when future car buyers think of a falcon most of em tend to think of the last falcon they rode in....a taxi!
