My first legal kah was a MK II Corty!(bought in 1990)(had 4-5 kahz before that) and I still have it! It needs a bit(lot) of T.L.C. to get it back on the road. It is a L model w/ the wood dash face. I had a G.T. dash (AUST) in it,(it now has a LOTUS G.T. dash in it.) and I did a lot of work to it! New paint,new interea,(spell check!),FULL reco on the engine, w/ a 0.060 over bore,(made it a 1.725)! went like a rocket!!,new brakes,new tyres,new carpet,new shocks,lowering kit,(2'all round) detailed engine bay,a far bit of chrome work...and the list go's on.... . anyway,at one stage I had 10 MK II corty's, then I got it down to about 3 or 4. Then I bought a XT Falcon Panelvan!! That kah changed everything!!!!!(the cortina program was axed) that was back on the 15/10/2002! and I still have the Pano!! I now have 4 XT's,(1 sedan,2 panelvan's,1 s/wagon.) I have a XR Fairmont sedan(according to my w/shop manual) It's all factory original and NEVER been molested!!last rego was back in 1982!!(sticker still on the flipper glass) and it's been off the road ever since! i also have a XW panelvan I use for drag racing!!(The Vantom) It has a 250 2V pre-X-flow donk in it,and the best so far down the 1/8th mile is a 9:95 at 115km!!(1/8th mile is 200m.) I'v also won a trophy w/ it!!, and it cost me $800 to build and buy it!!!!!!(If any of you blokes live in the Wellington area,(N.S.W.)the first meet of the year is on the 23/3/14! at bodangrah airport. the XT pano is my home at the moment,and has been for nearly 2 years now. in the 11 years of ownership, I have had 7 motor's in it! the last one been the biggest and the best!! by far!!(351c).but now it has spun a bearing,so it has to come out and be fixt! which is a good thing,for I want to drive it round and through Australia! as soon as I can get it ready to do so.It'll have a G.T. spec cam,tuned extractors and a new fuel delivery set-up. should liven it up a little!! I would love to get a XR station wagon!! I just love-em!!. Till next time,Cheers.
