Early Falcon Car Club of Queensland

1960 Falcon Deluxe XK - Secretary

We decided to try a new idea to clean the 50 year old crusty cooling system. We blocked the water jets and filled it with household vinegar. This is environmental friendly and thanks to a University of Queensland research student Janina. Very affordable too cost $2.49 vinegar and $8 plastic container.

This is one of those projects that followed me home 9 years ago and for some reason it is still there. I found her in a very sorry state dumped outside my local wreckers and I felt sorry for her and brought her home. I hide it the corner of my shed till I had time. In the mean time I have moved four times and she is still with me. Since it her 50th birthday this year we thought we would give her a fresh coat of paint and some seats and crank up the old girl.

I will update the progress via the web site, please email me if you have any hints or pearls of wisdom that can help us on the way.

Kind regards,

Al Sweeney
