From humble family transport through to serious performance cars - here are our top six Falcon yarns

Fab Fords - our top six Falcon stories
Ford Falcon GT-HO

1. XY GT-HO Phase III - Of course we had to include this! Always controversial when they hit the auction scene, these cars have a huge reputation. And who better to put in the driver's seat than touring car legend Allan Moffat? Jason Horder was kind enough to lend us his example for the story.

2. Ford Falcon XR series - 50 years after its introduction, we look at the car that launched Ford Australia into the muscle car era and became one of the all-time classics. Steven Zandt cut us loose with his incredible sedan and wagon pairing.

3. BA XR6 Turbo - okay, it's not a chrome bumper car, but we reckon these things are a great buy at the moment. See the story of Angelo Loupetis and his long-term example, and see the video here.

4. XY cop sleeper - essentially a GT under the paint, this special build for the ACT cops was meant to give miscreants a fright. Peter Rujanokski was fortunate enough to find and rescue this absolute gem. See the video here.

5. XC 500 - And just to prove you don't have to have a glamour model to enjoy a classic, here's Con Raphael's humble family transport that has so far served two generations.

6. Cobra collection - We couldn't do any 'best of' list without mentioning Charlie Vacca's remarkable Cobra pairing which, by some weird coincidence, share build numbers! See the story here.
