hmmm let me see....can anybody guess what type of cars I like?

1996-1997 1969 Ford XW Falcon GT 351 V8 (upgraded to GTHO Phase 2 specs), my first car...I got in to way to much trouble and my parents sold it to pay off my fines.

1997-2006 1978 Ford XC Falcon 500 387cu V8, I owned this car right up to the beginning of 2006, and then I sold it after fuel prices got over AU$1.50 a litre.

1998 1976 Ford XB Futura GS 351 V8, crashed it...badly, I was in hosipital for a few weeks after that one...

1998-1999 1972 Ford XA Falcon GS Superbird 351 V8, flogged the ass off of it and then stripped it and sold it for a hefty profit...it paid for the below car and then some.

1999 1982 Ford XE Falcon GL 4.1 litre inline 6, used it for spare parts on the below car

1999-2000 1981 Ford XD Falcon GL 4.1 litre inline 6, sold it to buy the below car

2000-2002 1976 Ford ZG Fairlane 500 302 V8, got sold after I lost my licence 2.5 years after trying to outrun a few cop cars with it.

2003 1979 Ford XD Fairmont 302 V8, I sold this one to my dad...it now has 360cu worth of Cleveland V8

2003-2004 1987 GMH VL Calais Turbo 2.5 Litre inline 6 (RB25DET equiped), I only had this one for about 6 months before it was stolen and burnt out.

2004- present 1986 Ford XF Falcon S pack 4.1 litre inline 6, I still own this one...it's currently under going a ground up restoration

2006- present 1984 Ford ZK Fairlane EFI 4.1 litre inline 6 (Current daily driver)


The 1978 XC falcon started life as a lowly 4.1 litre inline 6 powered car that my dad purchased for me in 1997 to replace my XW GT after I got in to much trouble with it and my parents sold it on me....a 17 year old shouldn't own a V8 powered car with 350+ hp...speeding fines FTL


cars I've owned between 16 and 27

My ride history tells me I drove whatever was given to me at the time... up until 2 yrs ago when I finally acquired a job that paid enough to get a newer vehicle. My fav rides were the 76 Lincoln (boat) and the 96 pickup (fun stick).

1978 Datsun B210 ('84-'85, owned by parents but I was the primary driver)
1982 Chevrolet Citation ('86-'90, awesome college car)
1985 Jeep Cherokee ('90-'90, hated this thing)
1991 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS Turbo ('90-'01, loved this one)
2000 Nissan Maxima ('01-current)

What does it say about me? In general I like to drive my cars into the ground. The Citation had ~160K miles and ran okay before I decided I wanted something else. The Cherokee was a mistake (my father got a good deal through his company but the vehicle sucked)...the Eclipse had >160K miles, and the Maxima has almost 150K.

True. Future classics are all galvanised now, so tin-rot is really a thing of the past.
