Default Greetings!

Hi All,

Just joined up the other day but haven't really had much chance to get on here and read or post much yet.

Guess the basics are my name is Rik, 28 years old, living in Adelaide, Australia.

My primary ride at the moment is a 2001 Ford Falcon:


More images of it are over at www.aufalcon.com/riksta however its about to look totally different, the body kit is getting changed over care of being hit from behind and pushed into the car ahead of me on my way to work one morning. I should be picking it up from the crash repairs sometime this coming week, their ETA is Monday or Tuesday so let's hope its not too much longer.

I do have a second car as well, a 1988 Mitsubishi Colt:


But that hasn't been registered for 3 years now, since the reverse gear stopped working in the automatic trans. I am currently thinking about reviving it though and using it as a daily driver to work and back to cut on fuel costs a bit, try save some money to get more stuff done to the Falcon.

So yeah anyway that's me, look forward to reading through the forums about all your cars and stuff.

Cheers!

Haha, I had a 1983 Dodge Colt, pretty much the exact same car, it had that two speed transaxle "Power" & "Economy".

Haha I had a 1982 Mitsi Colt before that one with the four speed manual and the second gear lever for Power & Economy.

The list of cars I have owned (in order) is:

1974 Toyota Corolla (Model Code KE20)
1982 Mitsubishi Colt (Model Code RB)
1988 Mitsubishi Colt (Model Code RE)
2001 Ford Falcon (Model Code AU2)
