Ford Ranchero

Race block Ranchero

The late great Chuck Berry once sang ‘Get your kicks, on Route 66.’ And if he was driving this 1965 Ford Ranchero with a modification list longer than most phone books, there’s a fair chance he would’ve kicked that strip of road well into the middle of next week..

In pursuit of a BA Falcon

Loved the seedy tales from the Australian TV series Underbelly? Loved playing Cops and Robbers as a kid? On the hunt for a BA Ford Falcon that you can’t actually register and drive to work?

If you answered yes to any of those, boy have I lined up a Facebook found beauty this time around!

The need to Graduate

At first I was thinking it was a quite day in the auction yard, with nothing really capturing my attention (well there was a nice Monaro with sparkly paint that didn’t look too bad and a couple of rough looking Nissans – but nothing that really stood out and screamed ‘You definitely don’t see one of those every day!)

Well until I stepped inside and came face to face with a fierce looking graduate…

Aliens VS Predator VS Ford Falcon

You can tell it’s race weekend here on the Gold Coast (that’d be the Vodaphone Gold Coast 600 for those playing at home) because my favourite auction yard have brought out all the toys in the toy box. And in the middle of those mountains of classic metal sits one owners homage to a bitter rivalry that not even an entire universe can contain..

All that glitters is not just an Apple smartwatch

We read today that the new Apple Smartwatch will be released here in Australia sometime next month and for those who have more money than sense, there’s an 18 karat gold version that will set you back $24,000 AUS.

Yes 24K to blow on something that talks to your iPhone. I too can do this and I’m nowhere near that expensive.

However if you do prefer to put 24K towards filling your backyard with automotive gold (as in paint color..), allow us to unearth some possible purchases a little bit bigger than something you strap to your wrist..

The more you know – Convertible TX3

Inspired by a Ford Laser TX3 I passed yesterday (with the rarer than hens teeth bullet style headlights) I was curious to find out what the going price was currently for the little turbo fed AWD buzz box. (Not that I’m buying one, but still..)

However a quick look on eBay has netted something even more curious – a TX3 convertible! This is the first time in my 34 years of rambling that I’ve ever seen one..

Bargain Bangers week 9: Limited lifespan Laser

My very first car was a 1989 Ford Laser Gl sedan and I drove it into the ground (not literally). It was super cheap to run, got from A to B (very slowly), looked as cool as a cucumber sandwhich and helped me move house more times than I’d care to remember. So for today’s Bargain Banger write up, in memory of my own ‘beige beast’ I truly hope that someone saves this little Ford Laser from the scrapheap..
