I was just reading through an old thread that popped up again recently,
and got to thinking... when did the 'mod bug' first hit me?
Like probably most people on here, for me it was when I got my first car.
An XF Falcon, just after I left school, nearly 4 years ago.
Didn't have much money so I didn't go down the performance path, instead
took the path of appearance enhancement.
First thing I did was strip back the beige paint and give it a custom black
with blue pearl paint (cost me a total of $1000 as I did it all myself).
Bought some cheap replica EL Tickford wheels, lowered it, spent $300 on a
dead Fairlane, used the interior, sold the rims on it and got my $300 back!
I was quite happy with my cruiser.
From then I started working and was able to spend more money on it.
This time around though, I've gone back and taken the other path.
Performance mods first, then appearance.
The Fairlane is my first V8 and I'm making sure it's one hell of a V8!
So when did it first bite you?
