Love your work V8.  Good to see you got a 76 XC Falcon over there.  There are a lot of the 71 Torino styling cues in that coupe as the 1972 XA version was styled around the same time in the same studio.

Great eye, Roo. It is indeed a '76. For me it was quite unusual seeing a musclecar like the Falcon with right-hand drive. I'm quite envious of all the great cars the Aussies built in the '70s. Just about every old-school car built after 1972 in America is crap. Aussies kept on building badass cars like the Falcon.

More than any other car I've ever shot, this Falcon attracted lots of confused and intrigued onlookers. During the two hours spent on the exterior photos, at least half a dozen cars pulled up, trying to guess what kind of car it was. No one got it right :)

They mustn't have watched Mad Max (The Road Warrior) lol.  1976 was  when these cars turned to crap engine wise.  Local emission controls in the form of EGR etc came into effect robbing them of power and increasing consumption.  Ford did a better job of managing it than Holden did though.  I've attached a pic of an even rarer version of the coupe - a Ford Landau.  It was a luxury version and only 1300 or so of these were ever made.  The front was the same as the local LTD with a different side window opening and a strip tail light similar to the 71 Torino. 

You should get out here sometime as some of the cars are very different, especially the old US ones.  In the 30s and 40s local body builders made some unique variations such as the sloper .  In the 50s Ford and GM were assembling cars from kits sourced from Canada which also led to some unique styles such as the 58 'Star model' Customline and the 62 'Tank' Fairlane.

Last weekend was a long weekend for Australia Day and there is a regular free display of older cars in Melbourne as well as the annual hot rod show.

I would love to visit Australia sometime, and not just for the cars :) The enthusiasm surrounding the car scene out there reminds me of America in the '60s.

Here's some other Aussie made sports cars.
These are Bolwells dating from the late 60's and early 70's.
The older one (the orange one) is powered by a Holden 6 cylinder engine, and the later ones by Ford V8's, both the 302 and 351.

.
Philadelphia Auto Show is now open.

I'll be there Wednesday (2/12/14).

Ford has a new Mustang and the aluminum F-150. Porsche has an SUV. Let me know if there's anything you especially want to see.
