biggrin My New Futura!!

Hey Guys!
Here is my NEW Pride and Joy that I picked up from Etheridge Ford in ringwood three days back.

Shes a 95 EF II Futura. One owner, 5 speed, Cruise control, full service history and very very very Clean and straight.

The photos really speak for themselves, What do you think..?









The engine is cleaner than Mums 98 NL fairlane!! Hahaha. I'm having so much fun driving it..... Having a Manual is AWESOME!!!!!

Anyways, your thoughts?

-cheers

Re: My New Futura!!

Great catch XR6Child! Manual = best! I'd say start saving firstly for some new suspension, you don't have to go overboard if you are on a budget - the standard Tickford items will do nicely (there is a great bloke for top deals on Ford stuff on the forums here). Another little change that makes a great difference is the gear knob and shifter height. Get your hands on either a short shift kit ($399 from memory) or even just an AU2 Momo XR knob ($110 or so). The little touches all add up!

Let the mod bug bite :s6:

Enjoy!

Re: My New Futura!!

Very clean, get out a hack saw and then slide on a momo gear knob, no need in spending $400 to get a shorter stick, when a metal blade can do the same job :D
