Great pics man! I especially love that picture of the old barn. I love going into those old buildings and just looking around, just get that eerie feeling of "oh shit this thing may kill me". But no worries Zartan made me buy a helmet....

Yeah I get that feeling to. I freaking HATE spiders, always have. I've actually punched my dad in the face from pure terror when he killed one and then chased me through the house with it lol.

Nah not for help, got into a little accident on my Subrosa with some friends. I dont have my ninja yet, its out there though. I have a 1994 Toytota Supra TT that Felix laughs at me about lol.



I have some more pictures somewhere, I have to clean her up real nice and take some great pics. I want a poster for my office here at my house.

ahaha that is my car, that was in '05 about two years before I actually bought it in new orleans LA. It's from my photobucket account.

Now with this picture:


If you save it, then zoom in you can get a glimpse of me when I was 16, thats the first time I drove it. Went from Biloxi MS. to New Orleans, LA that was on new years eve if i'm not mistaken. I took this picture randomly in someone's driveway...we got lost and wanted a pic haha. I have a few more around in my account. None in this computer (gf's) I have a floppy disk with some pics on it I'll try to dig those up and transfer the images.

I think Felix had a falcon, he sold it before he got his ninja. Its weird both of you say that you really miss your cars, which I can imagine those look really cool.

Lately I've been missing my first car a 1988 Camaro Z28 Iroc, My mom gave it to me when I was 17 and I only had it 3 months and just had to sell it. 8 miles to the gallon, bad transmission and I didnt have $4800 for a new one. God that thing was fast, it would eat the supra in a heartbeat, over 700 hp. You just tap the gas pedal and your front end is in the air. I got $10,000 for her and that went towards the Supra. The owner made it a drag racing spec car and I saw it run once. I dont have any pics though, it was a dark silver with stock hood scoops, flowmaster, supercharger...geezus lol.

Sounds like a hoot! Utes are a tradition here in Australia, much like big trucks are over there in the US of A
I only got rid of the ute because I got a new job that come with a work ute, which has just been upgraded to a brand new Ford FG Falcon R6 Flat-tray. Identical to the attached photo, except in charcoal. Its my new car baby :)

Zandit - Looks like you have an amazing place to ride. Nice pics.
In regards to your vehicles, years ago in a galaxy far away, FORD used to build something for us here called a Ranchero, which was a small pick-up based on what they called the Falcon , ( sound familar ?)




FORD built these right through the"70"'s then phased it out,most likely due to the high demand for full-size trucks. There are spy photos on the web showing a possible re-release on these. Would look something like a Mustang with a truck bed. Not as cool as what you have, for sure :p

Yeah guys, I'm pretty sure the Falcon ute was originally done here and then sent over to the US, when they brought out the new FG falcon sedan and ute, it was supposed to be developed for left-hand drive and exported to th US, but the big CRISIS hit and it got canned. Here it competes with the Holden Commodore which is was exported to the US as the Pontiac G8.
Yes I know a bit more about cars than bikes because I used to sell them!!

Ahh, Crushed & Crispy's been doing some homework!!! Well done!! If there are any Tasmanian Tigers left, they would be down south below Hobart which is mostly uninhabited.
I'd actually forgotten about the GTO, from memory, it didn't sell all that well so got pulled, was also discontinued here in Aust. too.
The Ultimate version of the New Falcon is the FPV GT-P whch is below, looks awesome in white!

Didnt they show a falcon in Casino Royale when bond was driving down a carribean road? I had never seen a ford like that before and it shows a striking resemblance to this model here.

Sorry to disappoint boys, but the car from Casino Royale was the new Ford Mondeo thats not for sale in America. It's basically sold everywhere else, like the Euro Focus, but you guys get the Crown Vic and your version of the Focus!!lol
Mind you the new SHO Taurus looks the goods. We may get that in a few years when the Falcon supposedly will end :'(

Thats kind of heartbreaking, Focus is just a joke for car savvy person but great for a 60+ year old. I do like the look of the new taurus but eh its a taurus, good family car.
