After smiling all w/e with Simon B's comments, today, I copped this e-mail via my old man from Simon saying that I actually won second place in the concourse! (Mind you there was less than 10 cars). Apparently I've won a signed print of a Barra Falc! (Yep my head is still growing!!) Waahooo...
Yeah - I got pics. Unfortunately they were taken with a 4MB camera and I don't wanna reduce the res to post them. I'm thinking about putting them on a website - I'll get around to it eventually.
I'd love to say that I own an '98 (NL) FBT (Fairlane By Tickford), but when I bought this car, all the FBT's had been committed. There was no way I was going to wait till one came up second hand - especially seeing no-one really cares or knows what they are. Recently, I've seen about a dozen or so that have sold cheaper than offers I've had on mine. So I set about creating my own unique Fairlane with a combination of performance and luxury.
Anyway, I bought a NL V8 Special Edition and in con*****tion with an insider in the former Tickford, I went to town on the suspension, wheels, customised and built a new interior, audio, etc. (keeping the mods restrained). The result is (to me) just awesome! You know that feeling when you lock up the car, walk away and turn to check her and you smile 'coz yo know the effort to make her look that good or stand-out was purely the result of the hard work that you put in?! :s6:
I'll try to put a photo up on the gallery soon. Otherwise, I'll be taping the V8's on the 10th and taking her up to Melb on the cruise...
Black Magic is on the prowl...
