A fitting send off for a Lengend

Alright folks this is the last time we are going to see our beloved warrior in combat. The Windsor is about to be discontinued. :mad: Here are my options of what ford AUS should do for the last windsor built in Aus.

1. Dip the engine in chrome and put it on display in the ford discovery centre.

2. Put it in a 1 of a kind GT with GT stripes and put it on display in the ford discovery centre (quote unbelieveable power figures for the display).

3. Put it infront of the entrance to Ford Broadmeadows as a sign of the changing car industry.


Either way it will be a sad day when our 40 year old veterin stops sticking it to GM in Australia.

Post your ideas that you would like to see and maybe we can get GP to take up one of the ideas. :s6:

I like the chrome idea, complete with all chromed fittings and anodised bits.

What did Holden do with its last Aussie-built V8? Did it go to a museum somewhere? I think it should go to FDC (hi Felicity!)

Yeah, it should go to Flick in full T3 fitout.

Geez, the Windsor should have it's own wing in the FDC

I think the Chrome idea will be the best.... What'd they do with the last Clevo?

I gotta agree with Ken, put the last windsor into a blueprint TE or TS 50 with all the options and send it off to the discovery centre.

Best looking of AU series with the finest incarnation of the Windsor
