i think it was a sedan from memory - black ??
few years ago now, hadn`t really thought about it since
just remember thinking that it stood out as a big old car amongst all the new WRXs , Lancers , etc.
`75 XB FAIRMONT SEDAN injected 351, toplaoder, disc brake 9", factory paint+ vinyl roof.
`03 BA XLS ute - lpg, auto, lsd, acid rush paint,
I read an article years ago about a bloke rallying a Phase 3, rear tyres lasted 20km. There are "some" Falcons rallying, eg a pair of EF XR8s at the Rally of Melb I went to a couple of years ago, however as you said they aren't really suited. Larger size makes the roads through the bush tighter (eg can't get as sideways before you hit things), and on dirt having extra power does not make the same difference it does on bitumen.
hmmm.... perhaps an old falcon or corty might be a good idea - just realised i'd only be up against the commodores in the engine capacity thing (i think), but i couldn't bring myself to rally anything older than an XD (i'd want it for the street).
but the newer falcons are fatter anyway aren't they? Wait what am i saying - it'd sound fu...bloody tough, it'd look fu...bloody tough, and who cares if it didn't do good - it'd be my first year, and goddamn would it put on a show for the peeps taking photos round corners
