1983 Ford FalconReview

Feel Sly? Get A Vixen — Performance- good old falcon, goes hard, brakes hard, handles like a dream needs a few repairs due to being stolen a few times. Costs a fair bit due to it being a v8. Very fun car to drive. Get One!

Pros: She is just the viXEn

Cons: The damage due to thieves.

1983 Ford FalconReview

Thirsty Slug — Probably not the worst car I've driven, but certainly the most boring. Heavy (make that VERY heavy) steering, a choked-up 6 cylinder mated to a slush-box - not to mention the sheer bulk of the thing, conspire to make this a throughly uninteresting drive. The supension is so stiff you could be forgiven for thinking Ford only ever fitted it as an expensive option, and the acceleration is swift only by 1920's standards. The so-called 'styling' is plain to the point of being devoid of character, and amount of fuel the thing drinks will make your eyes pop out. I have been told, however, that they can literally tow anything, or even pull over a bluestone-cathedral if you need to get rid of yours... If resembling a car isn't important when buying an automobile - this could be your first choice.

Pros: Can tow just about anything

Cons: Dreadfully slow, horrendously thirsty (makes a V8 look economical) plain styling, bad suspension
