Random Car Spotting: Ford Falcon deluxe wagon

After dropping my Cefiro off at an auto electrician workshop to sort out a dysfunctional left-side headlight, I walked around for a few minutes while waiting for my mum to come pick me up to go back home while they worked on the car. While walking over to the main road, I spied this very cool looking Ford Falcon wagon, I'm not an expert on these, but it looks like an XM or XP, I think. The whitewall tyres, red wheels, custom plates and surfboard were some nice customised touches for an already cool classic car. You can buy plenty of different wagons new these days, but not with this sort of vintage style that even non-car people will tend to notice and appreciate.

Since there was another car parked right in front of it, and I was using the Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 lens, I couldn't really get a decent shot from the front. Either due to the proximity of the main road, a building or my ride showing up, the last photo is the only one of the front.


  1. Great work, definitely a classic, even the colour screams classic! No wonder he's happy!

  2. Yeah, I'd be happy with a cool car like this...
