Did I see a 4WD Falcon?!?!?!
I do not know if I had too much tequila or not but I am sure that I saw a Falcon ute with a 4WD system under it. It had a front end like a EA-EB, not sure.
On second thought, with a good 4WD or AWD system under a EB wagon with a V8, you would have just about the ultimate go-anywhere, comfy family mover.
OK, I can hear someone saying, "Yeah, lets take a EB wagon bush-bashing, and watch it leave body parts everywhere!!! Ha Ha Ha"
That is not what I am referring too, that is what they Landcruisers and Patrols for. I guess I am still thawing my brain from the Frozen North where I lived for many years and snow, ice and wet leaf covered roads were a daily encounter and the more traction you could get to the road the better. AWD wagons are very functional and practical to get you home after a snow storm and to the ski lodge and back.
Anyone familiar with the Volvo Cross Country 70 or 90, excellent car, except too small for me. I have seen a few on the road here. Having power to the front wheels would do wonders for the handling characteristics of a wagon, anyone ever driven a Audi Quattro, I have, and they handle like a dream. The Ford R7 is a based on this concept. And the Holden Cross 8 will probably be available in wagon form.
Probably a dumb idea, but what the heck!
