My XC Fairmont

My Car... I didnt know if i was going to keep the Fuel Guzzling Classic... I figure if I can put a few Grand into it... im not going to buy a new car for half of what it will cost to remove a few of the "BUGS" in it... or maybe im too picky

1977 XC Fairmont

Bought from elderly man (one owner)
was Stock as... umm... AS NEW

So far Mods include:

- 2 1/2' Sports Exaust System(Breathes a WHOLE Lot better)
- A Set of cheep Chevois
- A CD player
- A Nice Dark Tint
- And now custom number plates... KEEN4U Keep an Eye Out

In The Pipeline:

- Re-spray at the end of May/early June (including GT Bonnet and XC Cobra 3 Peice Wing + Paint Outs on Bonnet and Wheel Arches ect. to look similar to the famed XB GT)

- And Possibly a XC Cobra reverse scoop too (Pondering)

- And then after that some PHAT 12 Slotter Mags to complete the look

- 9 Incher with Disc Break Rear End

- Fuel System Upgrade (LPG Conversion. EFI, Valve Conversion to run Unleaded)

- And some Engine Work(Although i got no idea whats worth doing)

Some Crappy Pics... first up a front view

It looks like you have good to to start with, Ive always had a soft spot for these old girls (after owning a XC GS pannel van, XC Rally Pack 351 pannel van, XC ute 302, XC GS sedan and a Black XB GT coupe) Hope all goes well in the build up :)
What colour you plan to paint her?

Mines a 302 too... i NOW know i need more power out of it after today...i got eaten by a New Volvo S80...

I guess a Stock 26 Year old 302 Clevo is no match for a NEW 200KW Twin Turbo Six... sounds right to me...


Ummm.... Pine N Lime ???
