Lightbulb AV Fairlane

I wonder what it will look like? Given the fact that it did'nt polarise opinion as much as it's little brother, it may get away with only a mild exterior makeover. I quite like the look of them the way they are, they have a lot of potential, a set of 18's, tint, lowering and you will have a mighty fine looking car.

It needs a bigger motor though, especially a car that size. Big cars need big donks. Thats about all it needs tho!!:s5

There are only 2 states to be in:
Western Australia, and pissed.

I think the fairlane and LTD look prety good however the one thing that lets them done is the rear glas behind the rear doors. The C pillar IMO is way to large for the car and gives it a too chunky rear end. What they need to do is increase the size of that little rear window.

Also maybe change the tailights set up??

C Pillar needs to be changed IMO. Otherwise the Fairlane looks great!

Rear end needs to be fixed up. Looked too American. Lowered TL with nice wheels worked well

As i've mentioned soo many times before it needs to have an option of a small deck lid spoiler ala Statesman. Would finish the Fairlane off well in my opinion.
