    Default falcodore

    I have found the perfect car for Double Chevron, as we know he likes those aussie Ford-Holden cars.
    Bundamba auto wreckers in Ipswich have made a Falcodore,they cut a Falcon and a Commodore down the guts,as in down the middle from boot to bonnet,it runs a falcon motor and diff,Holden gearbox.
    they welded it up and she goes,painted right side in true blue colours,left in mobil 1, sheer style.

    Makes me glad I'm on this side of the Pacific Ocean, 'cause I don't wanna be responsible for the cleanup when his head explodes after having seen that.

    Got any pics you can post?

    Not to complain, but haven't they just spliced the front and rear corners of the Commodore onto the Falcon?
    It's a bit hard to see under all that red sign writing but to me the "Commodore" doors look remarkably like Falcon, so the hard part of lining up the roof and floor has been avoided.

    So now I challenge you Guys: Do the same with the once French arch enemies: Citroen and Peugeot.

    Only I recommend not to try with a DS21 and Peugeot 404, for a start!

    A 304 and a Dyane it is, then!

    Yes, I know, we shouldn't be upsetting the natural order of things, bla bla bla....

    It needs to be bit more of a challenge, like Citroen D(which ever model) and Peugeot 205

    Should be great on corners, at least in one direction
    Any day I wake up and don't have to go to work, is a good day
    Every day is a good day

    Corel Paint Shop Pro, pretty much the same as Adobe Photoshop but quarter the price.
    Those two are five minute jobbies and show it, using a laptop with a touch pad mouse and applying several generic filters. Just grabbed a couple of images off the net and stitched them together Just a bit of fun.

    Sadly Flash, they no longer have that distinction - they're just a Pug with a different badge

    Hmmmm... interesting. Certainly the first time I've ever seen that. I skimmed through the reference photos and it shows the horn ring as telescopic- an attempt to make the steering wheel adjustable for reach? I'd like to see how a wheelchair would have fitted. They're quite tall and the cabin on a D doesn't have that sort of room.

    From what I got, apparently this was a company that did the conversions. I wonder if there are any left.
