Bit behind the times, but a good review IMO anyway.

Who doesn't love a bit of wheelspin in 3rd in the wet? :s2:

Good review, sounded as though they liked it which is always a good thing.

Would you like to change your name to Homer Junior? People can call you Hoju.

Wow Im sorry to say I almost think the orange stripe looks GOOD on the silver GT. Puts it all in perspective seeing the old Roo in the back...

Why are you sorry to say that...most of the colour combos with the stripes too good. The orange on lightning strike in particular looks great, particularly in the flesh.

Re: GT Review - www.news.com.au

FordGuy is misunderstood!

Now that Im finished feeling sorry for myself....

What I meant was I've never actually liked the stripes on the FPV's. This is the first time I've seen one I like. It just doesnt work for everyone! Of course my favorite XR colour is citric acid, so as you can tell I DO like a car that gets noticed, but the stripes in general, in my mind, dont add to most colour combos. Im sure the subject was done to death when the GT/GTP came out so I'll leave it alone now :)

Re: GT Review - www.news.com.au

Must have had a very heavy right foot - I prefer to drive around in the wet minus the traction control as it annoys me and I can't say it calls for a huge amount of caution except around 3,500 when the cam kicks in.

Cheers
