small dent in my old EA

Here are some pictures of the old EA Fairmont Ghia I had a few years ago.

I managed to put a small dent in it.

Barbed wire fence didn't help matters much either.

My mate had a great laugh towing the falcon around behind his Holden ute.

I thought the plates looked familiar! Your from NZ! Gotta love the NZ style plate, much nicer than the standard australian issue with their 'slogans' IMO

I just caught a power pole with the front left wheel at full lock. Ripped the wheel off. The car then spun and slid down a fence line about 20 metres. Took out 2 posts, and one of the battons on the fence hit the windscreen. The only wire left intact on the fence was the top barbed wire, which went straight over the roof. The photos don't show it very clearly, but there wasn't a straight panel left on the car.
This happened back in '97, and yes, it's the only automatic I've ever owned.
