Lincoln's in Aus?

with all the focus on the new falcon, I was wondering if anyone has heard anything about the Fairlane? Personally, I would like to see the styling to slightly resemble the Lincolns in the US. Out of all of them I reckon the continetal looks the best. What are everyone elses thoughts?

BTW I was in the city the other day and saw an awesome looking KA. It had a mild body kit and the front lights were changed to a XR kinda style. Sounded pretty good to, probably just a good muffler though

And the best of it this not being tested by

FORD????????

but none other than the people you all love to hate GM.

They are bench marking this with the VX,VY for VE the all new commy, as they think this is what will best rep the all new(not that rumour again)FALCON.


Regards spyman.

Don't know about the back end, but the front looks pretty nice, better than what we have at the moment. The headlights have a bit of Beema about them.

Thats a Lincoln LS guys, loosly based on the Jag S-Type which of course uses the DEW98(??) platform. It won Motor Trend Car of the Year 2000 I think.

1993 ED XR6 M5 (1 of 329)
Polynesian Green
Turbo on the way!!
1993 EBII Fairmont (Now wrecking, PM if you want any parts)
1988 Nissan R31 Skyline

G'day again

You hit the nail on the head when you say "DEW98" for we will be using a cheaper virgin of that platform for our 2005 Falcon.

It was shot in Port Melb last summer.

That is y GM is using it as a bench for VE.

And it is the only FORD that is not edge design,
and a good replacment for Falcon but only if we had of loved turus,thank god we didn't. :D

Regards spyman.
