TRAX 1984 FORD XF FAL­CON UTIL­ITY Price: from $42.95 Where:

www.topgear.com.au

The XF Fal­con was the fi­nal re­fine­ment of the XD/XE body style and con­tin­ued Fal­con’s po­si­tion at the top of the new-car sales chart for most of the mid to late1980s. Ford boasted the XF ute was ‘‘tough when it’s time to work. And smart when it’s time to re­lax’’. The ute was more com­fort­able and bet­ter ap­pointed than pre­vi­ous mod­els, of­fer­ing many of the fea­tures found in the XF Fal­con sedans and wag­ons, such as AM/FM stereo ra­dio and de­flectable ex­te­rior mir­rors. Trax has recre­ated the GL model, which of­fered bucket seats, cas­sette player and a 4.1 litre, six­cylin­der en­gine.

POWER TANK MAXI-4000 Price: from $600 www.bushranger.com.au

Keep­ing your ap­pli­ances pow­ered up can be tricky when you’re back of Bourke, so some­thing such as a Power Tank can make life much more tol­er­a­ble. Bushranger Power Tanks come in a va­ri­ety of sizes and have op­tional ex­tras such as a flu­oro light or a 600-watt inverter. The Maxi-4000 Power Tank weighs 16.5kg, but what it loses in porta­bil­ity, it makes up for in power, says Bushranger. The rated ca­pac­ity is 40ah, with a max­i­mum dis­charge cur­rent of 400 amp (5 sec) 2000 amp (peak). It has re­verse po­lar­ity, high-volt­age, short-cir­cuit and an­ti­spike pro­tec­tion.
