my XW Fairmont

just thought i'd post a pic of my car
it an 1970 XW fairmont with a 302 windsor and a c4(i think)
its my first car and i've owned it for about a month now and all i've done so far is replace the rear wheel cylinders and shoes.
The previous owner had it for a year and before he found it, it was in a farm shed where it was sitting for 10 years so the some of the gaskets could do with replaceing so im doing the whole lot at once when i pull the motor out for a clean up.
it has the original black interior which is in pretty good nick, the door trims would be the only thing that lets it down although they arnt that bad.Its still got the original column shift but is soon going to be replaced with a t-bar
so far its stock as a rock, its go no real body damage except for a smashed up passenger door and a very small amount of rust.

Thumbs up Re: my XW Fairmont

very nice. reminds me of my XT fairmont until i stuck a shaker and spoilers on it

It's one thing to lose a drag, it's another thing to lose a drag against a holden. I'd die before I let that happen to me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
