June 25, 2000: Justin Cisney's 1964 Convertible is up.  I'm trying to get the pace going a bit as it is getting harder to keep on top of all the questions, replies, new cars, feature articles, and the new VIN decode section.  Many thanks to all who took the time and effort to send me VIN info for other years of Falcon.

Hope to have more info on my car soon, as I'm finally getting time to fix the little quirks and get her to operating condition.

Also took some time to clean up the site yet again - just tedious little things.  This site has now mushroomed into a site of over a hundred pages and 65 Megs!  Thanks all for your support and enthusiasm.

June 08, 2000:
  Chris Schumacher's 1963 Falcon is up.  I have other VIN numbers coming for the other years of the Falcon family, so my VIN decoder will be able to decode multiple years!  Stay tuned!

Also had a chance to surf the site and take notes on errors - many fixed now.

May 17, 2000:
  Keenan Willbank's 1965 Falcon graces the featured car slot.  I'm working on a VIN decoder on-line.  Now, anyone can get their 1965 Falcon, Ranchero, or Sedan Delivery decoded INSTANTLY.

April 29th, 2001:  A LOT of new stuff to add this round.  A trip to St. Louis had me bringing back a lot of scanning material courtesy of Mark Dinzebach, and now the material can be viewed for all to see.  Check out Gallery 3: Advertisements for a lot of new stuff on Rancheros and especially the 1999 Ranchero down under.  I also have started a new gallery for articles on the Ford Falcon family.  If anyone has any they want to share, send over email.  I'll gladly scan them up.

The featured car this update is Oliver Szakall's 1999 AU XR8 - what a great car, and a 5.0 to boot!

Sorry for the redirect to Restoration if you click on "My car" - right now I'm trying to make room so the Falcon can get serious bodywork done and then she will sport her own web page.  So, for now, please live with my write-up and 
Snapshot section.

I redid some of the main links off the main page - hope this helps navigation some......

November 25, 2004:  Gord Barnes car added - 5 speed install text changes.
