My previous car was nothing special compared to the T, but I still loved it...

white 97 EL Falcon GLi

Was stock when I bought it in January 2000, but I gradually made a few upgrades:

- 15" mags

- really good stereo system (won't go into all the details here)

- lowered

I would have done more to it, but then the BA came out and I had to have one!

I've always been a Ford man - - But my cars haven't all been sadly.

:finger: My 1st car - Mum's 85 Barina. Was a good car to have first up because I crashed it 3 times.

:finger: A 84 Camira. Needed a car on pay day so I went out with $800 and bought it - came home with $150 change even. Had it for the life of the rego (11months), never checked the oil, or the water - and didn't have a problem.

:bomb: My first beast - a red S pack EA. Bloody great car until some low life bas*ard decided to steal/burn it. Wasn't insured (until 24 male with 3 accidents = $$$). Worst thing was paying for it for another year after it was gone.

:bomb: A mid 80's Pulsar. Was a way to get around while I finished paying for the EA. Gave it away for nothing eventually. Had a bloody huge huntsman spider in it that I could never catch - scared the Sh!t out of me a lot of times.

:bomb: My 2nd Beast. 97 EL XR6. Bloody awesome car - - It was going to take a REALLY good car for me to trade her in.

-> Fossil :unsure::unsure:

That is a list and a half!!

I guess I know now why you have the name "fossil" anyway.

Impressive list, although a few ones a bit out of place...

80 Lancer LC coupe

I would like to see how much you would have if you got your money back for every single one...
