Default Car birthday

It's official. My XF Fairmont wagon , everyday driver car is now 30 years old built 10 - 1987

Still Going strong but she needs tender care these days . She cost me 300 bucks from a scrap metal dealer 12 years ago ( with only 185k on the clock ) . Has had a engine swap, the crap ethanol petrol killed the original motor , one cylinder wore out the other 5 were still perfect . Now on gas . Has first generation digital instruments that still work perfectly . Indestructable B-W auto.

1941 Morris-Commercial CS8
1940 Chev. 15cwt GS Van ( Aust.)
