Question Probe info

G'day Probesters, I'm from Australia and I was wondering, are Probes like a cult car in the US? You guys seem to be very passionate about them, and your area comes second to our Australian section, which is quite impressive! And before you guys rip my head off, I mean second in terms of traffic (although I'm sure even you guys would admit us Aussies rock!!)

Anyhoo, take it easy.

I've never thought about it, but I guess it does have a cult following. There's a Probe club in Australia just to let you know. It's just a fun little car to have. It stands out in a crowd, having a classic look and all. Yeah you Aussies do rock. To see more Probe stuff check out http://www.probetalk.com.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....

G'day Mate! Well, I think those of us who own Probes love them for the most part...since its a car no longer made, they tend to be more rare than not. I dont think anyone will rip your head off...we are pretty friendly folks here. I knew nothing about the probe when I first got it last year...but thanks to some local clubs, Ive met some great people! I know I get a lot of looks in my car. They look cool!

Is it English? Does it moo?

I'm the first to admit they are an attractive looking car (from the ones I've seen down here and in photos on this site) so I'm sure that goes some way to explaining it. And yep, it sure seems you are a very friendly bunch of car nuts; just wanted to appear friendly in light of the post wars and area popularity pole!

Doesn't he spend most of his time in the US these days?

You've probably got more chance saying g'day to him, from me rather than me on behalf of you!
