frown My Xw

Heres my car..

1970 XW Fairmont 302 V8

Fully restored, had it on the road for 3 weeks when an absolute GALOOT ran a stop sign and T BONED her!!!! Almost snapped the B pillar clean off. Chassis reminded me of a banana!!!
A certain insurance company wouldnt give me my car back. Thanks for nothing.

Vowed NEVER to restore another but that 302 Windsor keeps on calling. SO 2 years later i got myself another. I cant help that i have blue blood.

I got the pictures of the written off car but am hesitant in putting them up
bad memories if u know what i mean : ( Maybe 1 day.

That was a sexy XW mate. As an XW Fairmont owner myself, I have to say that story is a heart breaker. All the best with your current XW.
