Re: JAGUAR XF 4.2 V8

Love it!
Seems to be a great car with all the bells and whistles, been looking at them myself.

Electronics seem to be a bit of a hasle, seems be.

Looking forward to your feedback on the longer run.

Enjoy!

There we go, all the info needed to make the new "legal" tag! :D

Thanks guys.

Would love Boxy to confirm these, as he is the Expert on it.

Re: 1970 Ford Fairmont Straight/Inline 6 Vin tag-details

My Vin tag was also lost.

After going through the necessary Police clearances and obtaining a new Vin number I made up a tag in the form of a sticker with the info and had the new Vin number stamped on that.

Would the codes for trim, paint etc not be the same as the GT's?

Re: I'm new here, just saying Hi!

Welcome, nice car!

Yeh those lights were a fashion statement back in the day, unfortunate for both Capri's and SSS's.

Re: 72 Fairmont GT

Base does not look to bad.

Most spares are available in Australia, at a price though.
What really are the bigger issues?

Re: Pros and cons........

If you have an Autolite and a new service kit at that, stick to it. No nonsense easy working carbs.

Holleys are tempremental when the car does not drive daily. I do not have experience on Edelbrocks though.
