ALL FIRED UP – 1969 XW Falcon

“I bought my 1969 XW ute in pretty decent condition. The body was as rust-free as you can get; it just needed a new front end. I decided to add a steel reverse-cowl to the new bonnet. I wanted a clean look but it just needed something, and I think the reverse-cowl allowed me to […]

To be honest; the second-gen Camaros really haven’t had much attention till late, which is a damn shame because when done right, like this example, they look as tough as nails.
