We are a dying breed

Looking in the showroom I've notice the XA-XC thread doesn't get many views as the others.

AU - 58,024
EA-ED - 15,534
BA - 14,833
XD-XF - 15,709
XA-XC - 2,079 lousy views


"SIGH" it's a plastic world :sad:

Re: We are a dying breed

Well drive your XA/C Coupe on the freeway and then see what happens, people hanging out the windows, Thumbs up everywhere and every body is lookijng at the real classic machine.
Cudos the the new ones but there are 1000's of them everywhere anytimke.
the X range of the 1960-70 is a CLASSIC and scarse, so enjoy having one!

Re: We are a dying breed

I agree with you WAXBFAR, I couldn't keep a track of the thumbs ups and comments I get when I get the old girl out on the road. There are very few good examples of the X series left, but they sure get plenty of attention when they're seen.

!
Exactly.

Not only that but i think you will find most of the users on here own later model cars and therefore would be more interested in the other threads, but i bet if they could afford it they would love to have an old classic in their sheds too.

Re: We are a dying breed

I have a 97 Falcon and I know which one I'd prefer. THE XB! The newer falcons just don't have the trash/bush bash reliability or a cleveland XB. Yes, I am bias. I prefer Clevo's.

Re: We are a dying breed

I get a few people look at the Ba but when I drive the XA I get heaps of looks .. even from the young blokes who usually prefer rice.
