Yep, a Ford was definitely the right move!

Well I finally had a change to clean up this old XY I picked up last week, and it looks absolutely super all clean and shiny.

I can't believe the positive response I've had from people all around the place as well, everyone seems to love it. I guess the site of a totally original XY Falcon must bring back fond memories for a lot of people. I know that the new car vinyl smell that this thing still has reminds me of my parents cars when I was growing up. It seems everyone I ran into had a story to tell.

I got to drive it a couple of times on the weekend whilst it was a little awkward compared to what I'm used to, with the column sift 3 speed manual, rolling suspension, heavy manual steering with the turning circle of an air craft carrier.

Even though I found my self doing about 20-30 km/h through my favourite round abouts that I was doing about 70-80 km/h through 2 weeks earlier in the Corvette, it didn't matter one little bit.

I had the biggest smile on my face that you just could not wipe off and I know exactly why... Put simply, because I'm driving a Ford again!!!

Meet a guy with two Xy GHTOs locked up in a shed yesterday. He got the first one before he could drive. His mum had to buy it for him because he didn't have a liecence!
He also has a new 300GTS and reckons the GTs would give it a run if it wasn't for all the wheel spin the old girls get!:D

I think the same thing sometimes XA Coupe.

Some people are just damn lucky, and happen to be in the right place at the right time, most of the time.

Sorry botch, my work will not allow us to use ICQ, but feel free to email me any time at all (sheridan_brown@chromeglobal.com).

I don't know a whole lot about XY's at this stage so any extra info would be much welcomed.

I'm also still formulating and investigating my future plans for this car, and I think have come up with a great goal to stive for.
