351 EB Falcon

It seems it can be done. Sitting in the Shell garage across from Kingswood train station this morning was a bright canary yellow EB Falcon, with the plates EBB58L. I was in a rush and therefore didn't have a good squizz, but from what I could see through a cutout in the bonnet (no scoop?) the 351 seems to fit just nicely. Don't like the colour of it, and it has a huge v8supercar style spoiler. The two of those together make it look like an oversized ricecar. :WH:

Speaking of 351s, the new Street Machine has a twin-turbo, 351 powered XD Falcon. The Hillier boys have a new show car, a more drivable, less 'sheet metal galore' XP Falcon. Looks very nice, especially alongside the AU XR8 Coupe.

Good to see the Street Machine on the ball news wise, as they report of the XR8 gaining the 200kW V8...old news, where's the report on the 220kW donk eh? :WH:

Yeah, I should wander in and have a yak, Ford's nuts look after Fords best.

I had a closer look last night walking home, and the engine was missing the manifold and a few other bits and pieces, but walking past this morning, there was a supercharger sticking out of the bonnet! :D

Wonder how many ponies that beast puts out...
