I love the gear stick part where it snaps off and he pokes the stump!

One of the factory fitted faults in XF Falcons………

I quite liked the improvised door handle/latch at the start, too – about 1000000 times less likely to fail than the stock door handle assembly…

They were shocking, the doors used to sag causing the handles to be overloaded & break. They had the weakest body of any Falcon model. Whenever I used to put them up on a two post hoist the body would flex that much that you could not open the doors. The wagons were especially bad because they were long wheel base.

I will never forget lifting the bonnet on an XD one day and it literally fell of in my hands. The hinge runners had rusted away inside the A pillar, caused quite a bit of damage and the customer wasnt happy even though it wasn’t my fault.

Taken from facebook “Critics everywhere are saying: ‘a masterpiece’ – ‘classic cinema at its finest’ – ‘one for the ages’. If you see just one movie this year … see FALCON CONVERTIBLE! In limited release … rated M: for manly”

Pretty amazing since it was all shot on a DSLR. Don’t forget to click on the ‘like’ button and share with your friends!

Filmed on the South Coast with soundtrack by fellow Canberran, Owen Campbell & The Davidson Bros from Victoria.

That was brilliant and having owned an xf they were pretty much indestructible although in slightly better condition than that one 🙂

Some mates of mine did the very same thing with a lime green Gemini back in the 90’s and then proceeded to drive it to the local shops where they ended up getting a defect from a cop who happened to be driving by.
The defect notice simply said:
“Car has no roof. Sharp and jagged edges.”
I think the guy who owned the Gemini framed the defect notice and it’s hanging on his wall.

Hope they didn’t use a shotgun on it too!!!!!
Classic
