I dunno if there is a pattern but I know the next one is going to be an AV XR8:D
First car when i was 17, '71 XY Fairmont 250.

My third car, about another year later, '82 Fairmont Ghia.
Originally a 4.1, it turned out not enought for me...so 351 and nine inch went in and I was happy.:cool:

During the GT dynasty, I also acquired this car ...for the wife..
Car number 5... '82 XE Fairmont Ghia ESP.
Original 302 which after the rebuild ended up a very compressed 351.

After the GT was sold for lack of driving..(I do regret it)..car 6 come along... '96 EF Fairmont Ghia..
Your run of the mill Tickford 4.0L, this was a nice car to drive.
Went and handled well.
I still had the ESP in the shed if I really wanted to go sick.;)

And my current rig, the AU Fairmont Ghia 5.0. This is the best handling car I've had that's for sure, and it can get along also.
Next one will be an AV!!

I reckon it's a good line up to FM!
Building up to my first NEW car.
Just thinking, between me and my 2 brothers we've nearly got the whole Falcon family lined up, from XY to AU.
One had and XB Fairmont V8, then an XD Falcon V8. And the other has now an EL Fairmont 6.
That only leaves XF to ED blank. But I know people with them so..:rolleyes:

I was looking at this last night but I wasn't sure when you were going to stop adding cars. I have owned some Fords but mate I ain't in the same street as you. Veryyyyyyyyyyyy Nice. All of them! Quality plus

GOOD TO SEE YOU KEPT THE PLATES


How much did you get for the xy and when did you sell it??

I bet your kicking yourself for not keeping it, considering it would be worth a packet now!

;)

Ha, what a laugh. My old man still says to me.."All you ever wanted was an XY, and you went and sold it"
Yeah, I should have kept it.It was a good cheap car. 31MPG out of a 250 auto is excellent. Definitely should have kept it.
I'd be a rich man now if I still had that and not gone off and went through the other cars.
Sold it about 10 years ago I guess.

Nah, not me, and I live out of the city also.
Is there an AU Ghia like mine in that area? I still haven't seen one exactly the same as it.

Yum.

Of all AU's my personal Favourites appearance wise are the AUII Fairmont ghia and the AUII XR8 ....

And my most desired colour for those cars is black.I realise your Ghia is an AUI but it is one Sexy beast. Yum.
