My EL Fairmont 5.0 V8

Here's some shots of my EL Fairmont 5.0 V8. Bought it one owner, 49700km, absolutely immaculate. Had it 2 years now.
So far its got King Superlows, KYB shocks, 3" Lukey cats back zorst. Doof Doof Alpine system, one of 9psi eb's shift kits, 70mm MAF, EL XR8 airbox snorkle, Fairlane cornering lamps wired up as aux. lights, Fairlane side indicators, and copious quantities of T.L.C. :)
Since these shots were taken, I've also removed the 5 Litre V8 badges and replaced them with 5.0 V8 decals on the doors. Looks much cleaner and classier I think.

Let me know what you think :)

Low, Loud. How a Ford should be.

Re: My EL Fairmont 5.0 V8

but other than that the car looks great!

Re: My EL Fairmont 5.0 V8

cool, I don't see too many EL V8s around. The emblem change is good too.

Re: My EL Fairmont 5.0 V8

Thanks people.
Budget is a bit stretched at the moment, so they'll be waiting a while, but I think a set of EL GT champagne wheels will suit the colour of the car nicely

Absolutely supurb Darin. And if I know you mate, the thing would be in perfect condition. I agree with the removal of the 5 litre badges, it looks much cleaner.

We should to catch up soon.

I agree, especially with how low the car is.
