Famous Car XY GTHO Phase 3

Just thought that i would show you a close up shot of the GTHO Phase 3 that appeared in that TV ad "The Mother of all Performance" and also that starred in the film of "The Chase is on" They certainly were a classic Aussie car

Re: Famous Car XY GTHO Phase 3

she's a beauty. wonder if Ford will ever make a car like that again, just raw performance.

Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....

I for one would love to see a blue blooded, octane in the veins, raw grunt supercar. A real masculine car. It'd be great.

The drivers often commented at bathurst how the skinny 15"s wheels (from memory) would squeal like mad as they hurled the cars through the corners. Moffat claimed they were way under tyred and that the brakes needed attention.

The Chase is on

What movie is this ? When was it released etc ?
