1977 Ford FalconReview
Fantastic Cruiser, Just Dont Be In A Hurry With It — First impressions last, so naturally people think this is a muscle car long after they find out its slow. This is probably thanks to the factory air intakes in the bonett and the strong road presance this car is gifted with. The interior feels strong and clean with easy to read instruments and accessable controls, except for the placement of the factory headunit DIN slot which may as well be in the opposite door. The car is a fantastic highway machine, sitting comfortably on the road with little input needed by the driver once traveling in a straight line. although it has very little power for a car that weighs in at over a 1000kg's the engine, drivetrain and suspention components are strong and feel like they were made to cope with a higher powered engine. overall if you can find a good example of this car then I would reccomend it.
Pros: good comfort, road presence (everyone looks at this car at least once when you drive past) solid and reliable, classic, not plastic.
Cons: not increadably fast, poor handeling by todays standards.
