I go away from the office without net access for two days, and look what happens!

Ford release interior and engine specs and unveil the gorgeous XR8. The XR8 Boss engine is a surprise, as a lot of us were guessing it was going to be an uprated 3 valve/cyl 5.4l. Power outputs for Turbo 6 and Boss XR8 engines are awesome, a big left boot to Holden and SS. Top level Holden car outgunned by a 6 cyl - gotta love that.

FPV unveils itself, and we're given the GT, Pursuit and GT-P. The sketches look wicked, site is great - awesome effort all-round. I'm only wondering about the GT-P name, sounds like something I watch on SpeedWeek with the Nations Cup not a car, was hoping for GTHO instead.

The Ford Aus. snowball continues to roll and grow unabated towards a huge release at the Syd Motor Show. Can't wait to see these things roll out of showrooms and onto the roads enmasse!

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for a life. - Andrew Brown

Yes, it's a great time for us devotee's, and stuff is happening thick n fast!
Fwor is what I said yesterday when I saw my first Barra on the road. Narooma Blue Falcon, not XR but with XR side skirts and AU2 17's. Man it looked good. Gave the driver a thumbs up as I slowly drove past, to which he gave me a knowing smile in return.:s2:
Then a minute later he gave it a little squirt to get around some traffic.It seemed to pick up quite well. With the blacked out grill being the only masking, it looked like a Mustang in the rear view mirror.
No tailpipe out the back as per T1/T2.
I was impressed.
