i may modify one of my falcons like this. see targets been good to me i found so far 8 falcons there to just 5 at local grocer around the corner. they are still hard to find but i am happy i have a small fleet of them now and plan to keep on buying.

i'm not asking any of you to like them. but i'm going to try my best in my area to make it one of the highest grossing cars in hotwheels history cause i want to see more australian muscle cars considered and made in the states. i'm sick of high import cost for my love of australian muscle. so while you may not be as happy about it as you had hoped over here in the states i am exstatic both as a mad max fan and a huge admire of australian motor cars.

After not being able to locate any here, I looked in NZ and found 3!

I am stoked!!
LTDHO = Supercharged Intercooled 5.7L 360rwkw, 6 speed

XB Coupe = Stock Fairmont GS with 351 and 4 speed.

But I really want a 600rwhp XB coupe!

I was at Wal-Mart and I found a whole bunch of 'em. I bought two, and I will probably paint one to look like the Interceptor using the parts I used for my painted 'Nova' Interceptor.

I've been working on one. Much easier working with a Hot Wheels than the 1:160 as seen in my sig....

I must say taking the dremel to this to cut it up was a bit intimidating at first. Thankfully the metal is fairly soft and easy to cut. I should have taken more progress shots but once I got into the grove I just kept working. I cut away the boot lid and the headlights and left side headlight trim. Roof spoiler is hanld made from plastic. I need to make wheel flairs and driver's side mirror.
Image
I cut away the passenger and rear seat, changed the wheels and raised it's stance. It may still need more lift in the back. I built a radiator and installed rectangular headlights. I modified a blower from another car, a spare tire, fuel tanks from a pen shaft, and side pipes from 8 gauge coper wire soldered together. The tanks need caps and a strap details as well as jerry cans.
Image
It still needs a the details and flat black paint, but here is a first look at the outcome.
