    Guys,

    I would like to connect with the current owner of this Falcon. It was sold by its builder in April of 2019 in the Portland, Oregon area. If you can get me in touch with the owner please send me a PM. Thank in advance for any help you can offer.

    Didn't Dave post here a few years back? I seem to remember him having some input on some Ford/racing thread a while back.

    I like the way he kept the stock rear wheel opening instead of the radius look. The front suspension looks a little sketchy also, not much thread adjustment left on those tie rods is there?

  10. Dave Lyall has posted in here several times, I think in the AFX Falcon thread. He gave a whole story of the car, how it’s all fiberglass and the suspension mods. I have messaged him a few times and he’s very responsive. Dave is a very sharp guy! And that car is my favorite Afx Falcon by far 1 of 1

    Thanks, that's as I remember it. Interesting guy & ' from the horse's mouth' info. Seemed like a very sharp & accessable guy, who was 'there'.

    That's how we did mine. Actually 3 fenders to get the larger radius. Pic on post #204 of this thread.
