Rough roads and falcons dont mix!
The only passenger car that can handle rough roads are falcons.
The car falling apart because of the sh!t dealerships up north and not the roads.

Great pics Davo! They look great. Now when you get the chance, a 3/4 front shot with a rock range in the background..at dusk would look sensational.
And yeah you're right, The further out you go, apart from Cruisers and the like, Falcons are near the only passenger sedans you see.

Re: Houston the BA has landed

All of my falcons have been "bush" to a degree (except for the AUII simply because I haven't had the chance.) and they have all handled it very well indeed.

The wife even had our old EFII Futura Sedan perched over a wash over once with two opposing wheels dangling in fresh air.

All the doors opened and closed as did the boot lid. We ended up using the old "apply the handbrake slowly until the car starts to move" trick and were out in no time at all.

Falcons are definately the only cars made to handle to Aussie outback and not break in two.
