Showing some Aussie Pride!

Got the sticker from a mate in Australia, and put it on my car last night. Here's a couple pics I took this afternoon.

Tickford is Ford's performance car in Australia. Basically Ford gave Australia the permission to use their engines/chassis while the Aussies get to tweak it and style it.

Tickford is the performance arm of ford Australia. It is a join company owned between Ford Aust and Tickford Pty ltd. Tickford was recently taken over by the UK company prodrive.

www.tickford.com.au will give you more of an idea.

FTR of Ford Tickford racing
Is the sponsorship arrangement that one team has for the racing format here in Australia, like your Nascar but we race on tracks that turn in both directions all the time.

Tickford take delivery of Falcons and add performance engines suspension, body kits, brakes interiors.

Tickford also handle sun roof installations and gas conversion in run of the mill Falcons

Yep, thats part of the plan. I already did get one comment on it and it was positive. I figure, have something unique to my area on my car, right? I think this guy in a 1st gen yesterday on my way to work noticed it and wanted to race me. hehehe. Not a bad looking 1st gen he had. But I digress, if people show interest in the sticker here, Ill have them send FM money for it.
