onebadmerc The picture of the 66 Fairlane you posted is just a plain jane 66 Fairlane that somebody put XL trim on. I have yet to see a factory XL Fairlane in 2 door sedan configuration. As for being a rare car, it wasn't in the 60's, being almost 40 years old I would say they are rare now. The 66 Fairlanes in my opinion were the best looking of the Fairlanes made and they make excellent rods.

85Sierra This car is canadian by the way, i think it would be really hard to get all the chrome trim to fit though thats what makes me believe its more rare, not to long ago i seen a brochure for 66 fairlanes and it said there were post cars but i cant recall the numbers

No............ that's part of the reason I'm still happily married LOL. Yeah right, in my dreams........even if I wasn't happily married I'd only think about it. She was/is hot but she was and probably still is about as unstable as they come. In the 3 and a half years her sister and I were together she was married 3 different times and had 4 boyfriends besides! And not necessarily while she wasn't married. But DAMN could she drive a 4 speed!!!!

Bad Rat I think you might have a somewhat wantabe clone,,I'm pretty sure all the 500XL's were hardtops, maybe someone found some 500 xl badges and stuck them on , I had a 64 galaxie 500 XL and it was a hardtop and a 390/ 4 sp

She was not only a babe but she could cut a better light than 90% of the guys and she could drive a stick about 20 times better than him...... they got divorced. Go figure. Just saw her a few months ago after almost 25 years. She's still HOT! but....... I'm happily married.

38 special If it's red, it's rare. If it's brown/black it's well done. Sorry I just couldn't resist a little joke after reading the caption.

reminds me of the Olds 442 wagons and the Pontiac GTO "phantom" wagons, very cool.
