Tongue Tl50

I saw an amazing sight today, a TL50. It was black super low and had a I VOTED FOR A DRAGWAY sticker on the back of it (I'm in Canberra .... it has NO dragway). I didnt know the AU fairlane shape could look this good. .. the suprising thing was the couple in the drivers and passenger seats .. they were a old married couple ... had to be in there 60's. It was just great to see another great Ford driving around.

Well that's generally the target age group of any Fairlane regardless of what engine it has.

I though Canberra had several unofficial dragways, as in Barton Hwy (used to have the 1/4 mile marked out), Anzac Pde, and Northborne Ave....

I think I've seen the same car getting about - It is pretty sweet!

'67 Mustang V8 4sp... what fun to drive!

Canberra has a drag way, Ive been to it, Ive seen drag races at it..

It was next to the airport.. Did they close that one down? was actually a pretty good drag strip compared to eastern creek..

Oddly I was there for a mileage marathon competition..

Also the road next to the runway seemed nice and flag drag potential.. Near the airport so can't use radar..

I was driving to work the other week and I saw this white Toyota Supra import with bodykit and big wheels coming the other way. I got a look at the driver expecting to see some 20 year old bloke, but no I saw his grandma in the drivers seat! I kid you not, there was a 60+ woman with grey hair behind the wheel of this car which could have easily been featured in Zoom or High Performance Imports And, no I wasn't mistaken I got a really good look. Still can't believe it...

You can't beat the old bags in the mercedes convertibles though I guess women buy expensive cars too after their mid life crisis, hehe.

i suppose they might release some infomation when the Fairlane series is relaeased. Then again, depending on wether it would be worth making a Fairlane sports model, because the TL50 didnt exactly sell good.
