Transcription

  • In 1973, Tommy's Dad
  • - who was just a young man at the time -
  • travelled with his father to the city of Melbourne
  • on a mission to buy him his first car
  • The car that peeked out was a brand new, lime green
  • Ford Falcon XA Superbird Hardtop
  • The Superbird became the family car. They daily drove it.
  • As kids, Tommy's mom
  • used to take them everywhere in it, such as shopping, school
  • sports, relative's houses - everywhere.
  • Until one night, when Paul lost control of the car,
  • rolling it into a ditch, not far from where they lived.
  • Paul did not have any car insurance to cover the accident damage.
  • And with the car being in such a bad, beaten-up state
  • of disrepair, Paul decided not to fix it.
  • So the decision was made to take it back home
  • Where it sat on their farm for approximately 20 years
  • Tommy loved that car.
  • He recalls one of his fondest memories was sitting on his mom's lap
  • behind the steering wheel, steering it down
  • their long driveway on the farm.
  • Tommy said: "You can imagine me coming to the shed everyday for 20 years
  • Firstly as a child, then as an adult
  • working on the farm. I'd see the car every day.
  • It was never covered up with a top or anything, so it was visible to anyone who'd visit the shed."
  • The driving passion to fix the car was always in Tommy.
  • But he had to wait until he was able to do it
  • As it would not be quick or cheap to fix
  • The car sat exposed to the elements for 20 years on the farm
  • Until one day in 2013.
  • Tommy realized, that if he didn't start the project soon, there would be
  • nothing left of the car to restore.
  • Now, unlike some car restoration stories, where the owners spend
  • all their time for years working on the car,
  • bit by bit, Tommy did not have the skills needed
  • for a restoration like this.
  • His main job in the process was that of a project manager,
  • organizing work to be done,
  • having the car shipped from one location to another,
  • and spending years sourcing all the rare parts needed for the car
  • using Facebook and car enthusiast forums.
  • Tommy ended up joining many groups to enlist people's help
  • to find the parts needed,
  • as Ford XA Coupé parts are very rare and scarce at the best of times.
  • Tommy left the car in the hands of two professionals.
  • One worked on pulling the cover apart
  • and fully reconditioning the engine and running gear
  • Because of his vast experience with working on 1970's Fords
