BA Fairlane spotted on the road
Spotted on Nepean Hwy in Victoria at 6:05->6:15 going outbound.
Winter white, premium audio.
Had 16" wheels (well looked that size) and the rims were like the multispoke models similar to the AUII Fairmont. Kinda classy. Oh it was a V8 with reverse parking sensors and I don't recall seeing an exhaust tip.
Differences to the BA Falcon:
Double width chrome under rear lights
Chrome around the side windows
that little part triangle thingy window on the rear door.
Chrome front grill - looks nice
Similarities to BA Falcon:
Confused it with a BA Falcon until I saw one right beside it. Its larger, noticable when side by side, otherwise you could confuse them.
All in all it looks good, no pics unfortunately :(
Falcon Killer (if you believe what Ford Service Departments have to say about me)
AU II XR6 - October 2001 ~ December 2002 - RIP
BA XR6 - December 2002 ~ Soon to disappear if Ford CRC can't fix it....
45,000km service coming up - and i'll be asking for a sizable list of fixes:
* Gearbox (3rd time)
* Steering click (5th time)
* Brake Shudder (2nd time, and has the applied "Fix")
