Best Car Movie Starring our Australian Car Cousin

Eric Bana did an awsome film documentary of racing and totaling his prized Falcon XB. Much better than the idiot Dempsey trying to convince people he is in the same league as Mcqueen, Newman, and Garner. What a friggin loser. Lousy actor, terrible driver, replaced his nose, and an ego bigger than obammy. Ha ha ha

Tell me how to post it! I posted the link and it decided to make it a black square that is why I edited my post and said go to hulu and search for Love The Beast. Any help mods?

Cut and paste I can't figure out why unless Hulu doesn't want it embedded.

It is an Adobe Flash file and you need a Hulu or Facebook account

to view it.

it is a great movie 'love the beast', only car people get it and cry when they see it.

 

eric bana still never talks about his hardtop i hope he finally started to work on it again.

Basically the XA-XC cars used some parts from 71-73 but mostly it came over from the torino body and chassis.

The big claim to fame is of course madmax which used various XA-XY ford cars. The same series was used in motor sport racing from 70-78 and was big in Australia.

Yes, it is a 2006 Falcon Ute. It's an XR8 with the 5.4L 4v.

I really wish Ford would have brought the Falcon to the States in a LHD configuration. It would take a bit of time to get used to shifting with my left hand. :D I loved the Falcon since the first time I watched The Road Warrior. Later I worked with a guy from South Africa and he turned me onto the Falcons even more and the Perana Capris from South Africa that Basil Green came up with. I want to find a Capri and drop in a 302 just like they did back in 1970 since all the ones that were stateside came with 4 or 6 cylinder only. Australia is one place I would love to visit, if I ever make it there I will look you up!

that is great eric fixed his car, looks like he added rear coil overs also.

 

gpierce awesome.

 

a couple of years ago i almost imported a XC Cobra to the US, the right hand drive was a problem, and the import fees and then the DOT check was a pain but doable.

i ended up with my 72 instead,,,, i wish i could go back and go for the right hand drive XC instead :(
