I did enjoy the z4. I thought it was a big leap forward in styling from the z3 and the 3 litre engine was a great engine.Tried a Z4 but couldn't get on with it plus also no boot with the roof down.
I did like the Z3 I had although it was too slow.
My 718 is great on our roads, Much better than my 981.I did enjoy the z4. I thought it was a big leap forward in styling from the z3 and the 3 litre engine was a great engine.
The low profile run flat tyres were a disaster though. They were prone to cracking which meant you had to get the whole alloy replaced. That was expensive and happened more than once. they eventually sorted it out with the design but never admitted it was wrong to start with.
The low profile run flats also made the ride so hard and uncomfortable over uneven roads (i.e. every road in the UK). Going over a small pothole meant you felt as if the car had just been hit by a truck.
The ride quality in my CGTS is like a Mercedes S class in comparison!
I never really enjoyed the 435. Was just a bit dull and bland and "meh".
A '63 Falcon Sprint V8! NOW you're talking!1963 Ford Falcon Sprint V-8...……………….
It took 10 weeks to get that 1963 Falcon Sprint V-8. By the time it came in the dealer realized the demand and wanted more money, but I refused to pay more. It was a great car for its time and came standard with chrome engine covers and A-Pillars, bucket seats, 4-speed manual transmission and tachometer. The 1963 Sprint V-8 was the predecessor to the original 1964 Mustang, sharing all components except body sheet metal.A '63 Falcon Sprint V8! NOW you're talking!
Ford entered one of those in the '63 Monte Carlo Rally.
The following year an FIA Falcon Rally Sprint V8 won every stage of the '64 Monte (but the handicap arrangement awarded the win to the BMC Minis). They also raced those V8 Falcons in the early Trans-Am Series (built by Holman & Moody).
Always loved the racing Falcons: we have one that vintage races with us. Easy to build a clone these days but real ones are super rare.
Also, nice TR7. "The Shape of Things to Come."
