    ★★★ FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THE VIDEO / FACT UPDATES ★★★

    1) Do you still have the car as of Oct 2018? - Yes he does, the video & images in this video were put together by Tommy just recently, so yes he still owns it, and as said in this video will be handing it down to his son at the right time.

    2) Why is the steering wheel on the wrong side / Right Hand Drive - Because this is Australia, we have right hand drive cars and we drive on the opposite side of the road to Americans.

    3) Ford is American not Australian how can it be part of Australian History - The Ford Falcon XA is a unique Ford to Australia; Australian made, Australian sold. The Ford Falcon (XA) is a full-size car that was produced by Ford Australia from 1972 to 1973 in Australia. - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Falcon_(XA)

    4) You are driving on the wrong side of the road - Yes in Australia the Police let us do that kind of thing, they very relaxed about driving on the wrong side of the road.

    5) Why didn't he let his Dad drive the car - (Tommy Replied) "My Dad, didn't, and still doesn't want to drive the car. He refused to drive it on the day of the reveal and, to this day, still won't drive it. I don't know why. I have told him he can drive the car whenever he wants."

    6) Why didn't he give the car back to his parents? - (Tommy Replied) "As the video states, they never wanted the car back. It was mine to do with it as I pleased. I was given the car when my parents moved into town and had nowhere to keep the car."

    7) "F O R D Logo" - If you forward to 5:10 you will notice an error in the ford emblem on the rear trunk/boot. The F and the O are incorrectly spaced apart compared to the spacing between the other letter. - Reply from Tommy, "The badges on the boot were not evenly spaced when the car was purchased new. Hence why we chose to not get them perfectly spaced out."

    I believe it is the same type car used in Mad Max and the Road Warrior. Was sad when it crashed in the Road Warrior(Mad Max 2).

    Such a great story. I remember admiring that model back then. Love within a family is what keeps the world ticking over. How can there be 4,700 dislikes?

    Our parents spent a good part of their life and savings on us, when we finally grow up and become successful, and we are able to return something valuable to them, the feeling is just something else.
