Gtfalconhunter

Not so long ago I was sitting down with a couple of mates enjoying the a few brown bottles when the conversation turned to what cars had the biggest impact on our lives.

It came to my mind that out of all the cars that I had anything to do with the GT FALCON was number one & one day soon I had better get one.
I have had xy wagons & sedans, xa & xb sedans,xa xb & xc coupes one xa fairmont wagon, one Black 1973 LTD (the best ever) and to many others to think of, but never a GT.

Way back when on my first Day of School my cousin & his girlfriend were staying with us & the girlfrend was given the job of delivering me to School.
I recall that day for two reasons, one I had just turned five & was shit scared about the day ahead & also that I was Taken to School Yellow & Black XY GTHO Factory Sun Roof & all the goods inc Hot August Night Pumping in the old Eight track and a verrrrrry Sexy blond with the Bee Hive Hairdoo behind the wheel.

Now I am trying to put togther a data bast one how many GT`s are still out There and Where they are.

I am not putting together a shopping list and I am not any part of an Insurance Company I just want to see how many have survived and where there Lifes journey has led them.

If you or any of your mates have had or still own one please PM or email me with vin/chasis no and a rough location as to where It is as I want to set up a dot map.

Also If you know of or own a JOHN GOSS SPECIAL or COBRA I would also like to Know.

Regard`s James.

Re: Gtfalconhunter

I suggest you log onto www.falcongtclub.org and check out the discussion regarding a national GT register. Use the search tool to find the threads.

This has been discussed may times, and many people have volunteered to donate their time etc. Unfortunately, it still has not come to fruition for many reasons. Perhaps one day it will

Good luck with it

Re: Gtfalconhunter

The register only half exists, as I said, many people want it, but it hasnt quite got rolling as yet.

My numbers already exist in that database.

Also check out some posts by Jim D, and the link to his XY GT database based on factory production numbers. Amazing reference tool.

Re: Gtfalconhunter

There is no mention of location, and never will be.
Nor are there any names what so ever.
You will never get people to give locations, and nor should they.

All that exists is a register of the VIN Number, whether the car still exists or has been destroyed, what condition, factory and dealer options.

Its also a good tool for logging known destroyed vehicles VINs. Like the set of XB GT ID plates and cut out of the shocker tower apparently for sale at the country swap meet last weekend......

It`s not like Im going to do A sweep & BOOST.
I have a great intrest in what region has the greatest collection of these ledgends and It is only for my own record.

I dont wish to offend any of the members I just want to know where roughly where they are & how many are left.

Re: Gtfalconhunter

I've got 2 XBGT's and my old mans got an XBGT and an XYGT. But I must say I'm with Galaxy on this, I dont think I would give my vins to anyone, letalone the location, because despite you saying that you are curious and wish no harm, what if someone else got hold of the info?
