Martin’s Modified Ford Falcon FG XR6
Martin’s Modified Ford Falcon FG XR6 has been imported to the UK all the way from Australia. What made him choose this car? In his own words, Martin said: “How did I end up with this car? It all happened when I went on holiday to Australia, without the intention of buying another Falcon as I have the Falcon BA XR6 UTE already. Despite my best intentions, as soon as I looked through car sales, eBay, and Gumtree – I was hooked! Then, I found this one. I completely fell for it and the wife did too (which is a bonus).”
