The lowdown
Who: Sarah and Stephen Goodfellow
What: 1967 Ford XR Fairmont

What else is in the garage?

An '02 Ford Courier, an '06 Mazda Atenza, and a couple of three wheeler motorbikes.

What was your first car?
A mini.

Road rage - what makes you see red?
Following someone driving at 70kmh and when they get to a passing lane they speed up to 100kmh!

Your best driving memory?
Without a doubt, the first drive in the car after 10 years of owning it.

Tell us about the project:
We purchased the Fairmont 10 years ago in a bad state. It was barely running. It sat in storage (in bits) for 9 years, then last year we spent a lot of time and money to get it ready for our wedding in February this year.

History of the vehicle:
Stephen bought the car locally 10 years ago. It hadn't been on the road since the early 1990s. Aside from that we don't know its history.

Why this vehicle?
Stephen loves Fords and always wanted an old-school V8. There are not a lot of this model around.

Would you sell it?
Anything is for sale at the right price, but the wife wouldn't let me anyway; not after all the time and effort that we have put into it.
