Not mine, I saw it in the carpark at the GMC400 and thought it was unusual. You don't see many Falcons or Fairmonts done up, usually only XR8s.

Thanks heaps for those shots. I will be saving those for sure. Appart from the grill I love that kit. I have to say when you see AUs like that and you see some of the supposed drawings of AV;)
I just shake my head. Do you think the AU detractors would still think that car is ugly?

I never liked the look of the Fairmont bonnet with that little snout look right above the grill. On side profile it just didn't look right to me so I was horrified when even the base model in series 2 picked up this hood. Shows what i know about taste and car design eh. Anyway this design would have worked wonders for the series 1 cars. I am even starting to like the grill

This car is proof that the AU shape is a looker. It just needs 17inch-plus wheels and a proper ride height.

This is my favourite thread and I agree Pete that car looks great and I also agree about the grill. I would like to see one in the flesh. The 3/4 front shot shows up the rear wheel arch gap that turns people off. Bigger wheels would go along way to fixing this small glitch

That Grill!

Here's what that grill could look like by just deleting the two verticle bars, and moving the badge down. Looks a bit t-series, but nothing wrong with that.

I'm sorry if i've breached the copyright on the pic. :-(
