Here's my stocky AU1 that I bitch about

http://www.fordforums.com/gallery/data/3662AUXR.JPG

OK IMG tags were not working.. here is the URL

It's not a great picture. I am in the process of getting a scanner.

You cant see how high the back is from this shot.

Opinions please!

BTW in the process of deciding between AU1/2 Tickford 17".

Will then dump the car when I have a ramp to decrease the incline on our garage.

Not sure what else to touch.

Car is exactly the one in the picture, in it's current state.

This is the little bady I dreamed about at 16. Purchased at 19 and broke for a long time. A smart person would have put the hard work into a long term investment lol.

Cheers folks.

Edited by DK to actually show the car

Mate,

depends on what your going to do with the car. I was considering an AU1 myself not long ago, and was planning to source the AU1 XR bodykit the one with the triangle pieces on the side and biplane spoiler.

If your going for an AU1 kit i say get the AU1 wheels. The polish look of the wheels are nice.

BTW i can't see the pic of your car?

I'm not sure why your complaining about the look of the AUI front end. Most people I've come across reckon the AUI is nicer than the AUII/III frontend, as it's more clean and classy. AUII and III have been described as being too 'fussy'. If you prefered the look of the AUII, why didn't you just buy one?

Mate the best thing you could realy do is get yourself a nice set of rims and then lower the car,that will realy make a big difference to it and then you can go from their.As I also have a series 1 here is some pics of mine http://http://www.nswxrclub.org.au/i...-03-17/03.html
