Ford Falcon XR8 v Holden Commdore SS V Redline Track Review
http://www.caradvice.com.au/326189/?yt_desc - Read the article here.
In the great Australian V8 war, the Holden Commodore SS in recent years has
been consistently victorious. Not only has it defeated the Ford Falcon on
the motorsport battlefield, it has also wounded its arch enemy both on the
road and in the showroom.
The Blue Oval, however, is going back on the offensive with a new weapon:
the first Ford Falcon XR8 since 2010.
The Ford FG X Falcon XR8 and Holden Commodore SS V Redline cost the same
$54,690 in automatic form as we have them here, but the eight-cylinder
approach under the bonnet is different.
Ford has the on-paper advantage. The XR8 has seized the supercharged
5.0-litre V8 out of the GT that’s no longer on sale, giving it 335kW and
The Holden opts for capacity over forced induction, with a 6.0-litre V8
producing 260kW and 517Nm.

1960 Ford Falcon Gasser Barona Drag Strip 7-28-2012
1960 Ford Falcon Gasser Drag Racing at the king of clubs Rockabilly road
trip. Nothing like a straight axle in a 1960 ford falcon.
gasser was a type of hot rod originating on the dragstrips of the United
States in the late 1950s and continued until the early 1970s. Gassers were
based on production models from the 1930s to mid 1950s, which have been
stripped of extraneous weight and jacked up using a truck beam axle to
provide better weight distribution on acceleration (Beam axles are also
lighter than an independent front suspension), though a raised stock front
suspension is common as well. Common weight reduction techniques include
fibreglasss body panels, stripped interiors and plexiglass windows
(sometimes color tinted).
Being built for racing, these cars are subject to either an engine swap,
tuning or both. It was very common to fit a Roots Supercharger and mechanical fuel injection, such
as one from Algon, Hilborn, or Crower.
With form being dictated by function, their appearance is often very top
heavy and ungainly, largely due to front ends being raised higher than
stock, to assist weight transfer. Having their Exhaust pipes exiting through the fender well is
a common characteristic. Although functional, these cars
were often flamboyantly painted in metalflakes, pearls, and candy finishes
complemented by lettering in wild fonts.
The name arose because they were a gasoline-fuelled class, rather than
using methanol or nitromethane.
The Ford Falcon was an automobile produced by Ford Motor Company from 1960
to 1970. It was a huge sales success for Ford initially, handily outselling
rival compacts from Chrysler and General Motors introduced at the same
time. During its lifespan, the Falcon was offered in a wide range of body
styles: two-door and four-door sedans, two-door and four-door station
wagons, two-door hardtops, convertibles, a sedan delivery and the Ranchero
pickup. y American standards of the 1960s, the Falcon was a small car, but
elsewhere it would be considered a mid-size car. It was powered by a small,
lightweight 90 hp (67 kW), 144 CID (2.4 L) straight-6 with a single-barrel
carburetor. Construction was unibody, and suspension was fairly standard;
coil springs in front, leaf springs in the rear. Drum brakes were used at
the front and rear wheels. Front suspension was independent with coil
springs. A three-speed manual column shift was standard with the
two-speed Ford-O-Matic automatic optionally available . There was room for
six passengers in reasonable comfort in the simple interior. Body styles
available from the launch year were two- and four-door sedans, two- or
four-door station wagons, and the Ranchero car-based pickup, transferred
onto the Falcon platform for 1960 from the Fairlane. A Mercury derivative,
the Mercury Comet, originally intended for the defunct Edsel marque, was
launched in the US midway through the 1960 model year.
