I've just bought a blackwood series Falcon, which came with the usual maladies - rust, saggy suspension and three non-functioning door handles... the last one broke in the driveway the morning after I drove it home, and now I can't open the doors... or can I? Any suggestions other than a hammer and a new side glass pane?
I don't know how you're gonna gain access from the boot! I'm pretty sure those back seats don't fold down. Personally I'd break a window. Sorry to hear of your misfortune mate, & welcome to the Forums :)

Thanks Ghia... no the seats in those old things don't fold.... hell, you've even got to use a key to get into the boot! I'm investigating as to whether or not I can remove the rear seat back from the boot and crawl thru from there (be a bit of a squeeze between the bracing... I'm not as close to my racing weight as I was ten years ago ) Probably won't be the end of the world if I really MUST break a window, but it'd be easier if I didn't...
i bought a HQ years ago and locked the only key inside it the same day. thought of smashing a window but had the idea of seeing if i could force one of the windows down by hand and i could easily make the drivers side window go down with little effort. try that and then smash if it doesnt work.
