1982 Ford FalconReview

1982 Ford Falcon Xd - 3.3l Inline Six - 4 On The Floor - 4 Door Rwd Sedan —

Slow, Heavy, Inefficient, Ancient, Now full of Rust - But I love it! First car I've owned - bought in 2002 for $1400 on road. now worth about 5 bucks. You can fix ANYTHING on this car yourself! It's so uncomplicated, it's just basic car! It sounds great for a standard six, Looks like a grampa's car but is full of personality - everyone who sees it knows it's my car. The Falcon's needed two clutches since I've owned it (dodgy aftermarket clutches) plus a radiator, Muffler and Water pump. Normal maintenance Items when needed (plugs leads tyres filters etc.). Parts are cheap as. Despite being worth less than my shirt, I keep it clean and maintained. Oil + filter change every 5000 km if it needs it or not - It doesn't use any oil between changes which is rare for a car with over 250000 on the clock. It's got the heaviest manual gearbox in the world bar none (due to wear) - Also the synchromesh is gone on 2nd so requires double-declutching at times - if you can drive this car, you can drive anything! I was rear-ended in this car in 2005 - wrote off the Mazda 626 that hit me - Insurance wanted to write the Falcon off, but I paid an extra $200 on top of the insurance I received to get it fixed up - resurrected from the dead for almost nothing! Anyway I'm gonna drive it in to the ground, no need to sell it. Girlfriend's got a great car and I use my Motorbike most days anyway.

Pros: Fixable. Cheap. Sounds great

Cons: Slow. Heavy on the juice.
